"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 750, June 26, 2015: Inaugural speech to Israeli diplomats by the new deputy foreign minister
Israel’s new deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely, delivered a defiant message to the international community, saying that Israel owes no apologies for its policies in the Holy Land and citing religious texts to back her belief that it belongs to the Jewish people. The speech by Tzipi Hotovely illustrates the influence of hardliners in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s new government, and the challenges he will face as he tries to persuade the world that he is serious about pursuing peace with the Palestinians. Hotovely, 36, is among a generation of young hardliners in Netanyahu’s Likud party who support West Bank settlement construction and oppose ceding captured land to the Palestinians.
"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 749, June 19, 2015: The Israeli Parliament Seeks To Counter The Threat Of Boycott
This was the atmosphere in the corridors of the Knesset during the "emergency session on Israel's de-legitimization" held Wednesday. Certainly, the exercise presented no challenge since no vote was expected and that the members were content to express their views to the rostrum.

Le Monde Editorial: In history books, references to Netanyahu will inevitably mention his remarkable ability to survive. But the comments will hardly praise his methods and ideas. The unexpected victory of Likud in the March 17 election was achieved in particular thanks to racist messages against Israeli Arab voters and a refusal by Mr. Netanyahu of any commitment to a Palestinian state.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 746, May 29, 2015: Horrific Brutality and War Criminality in Gaza, Part 3

Staff Sargent, Mechanized Infantry: By the time we got out of there, it was all like a sandbox. Every house we left – and we went through three or four houses – a D9 (armoured bulldozer) came over and flattened it. First of all, it’s impressive seeing a D9 take down a big two-story house. We were in the area of a fairly rich, rural neighbourhood – very impressive houses.
