"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 738, April 3, 2015: Before the elections Rally Against Netanyahu in Tel Aviv

As an organizer expressed hope that the left would return to Israel, a large crowd chanted 'Bibi' go home ( Netanyahu nickname )!'

Tens of thousands of Israelis rallied against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his ruling government in the nation's capital of Tel Aviv on Saturday night (March 7 th ) as they decried the leader's domestic policies and called for a peace agreement with the Palestinians who live in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Government estimates put the rally at 40,000, but organizers and local media estimated that the number was more than 50,000 people

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 737, Marsh 27, 2015: Iran ‘s nuclear program a smoke screen for marginalizing the Palestinian question

Mr. Netanyahu has used during a quarter of a century false alarms and outlandish claims about Iran ‘s nuclear program both to serve his domestic political maneuvering and to create a smoke screen that relegates the Palestinian question to the margins. During that period, the Israeli government has increased the number of illegal settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem to more than 750,000 from about 300,000. Palestinians have continued to be evicted from their homes and land. This historic wrong, coupled with the blockade of Gaza, is the real ticking bomb in the Middle East. The whole world should work to defuse it.

How US helped lead blitz to torpedo unilateral Palestinian resolution in UN Security Council, and how a phone call helped Nigeria's surprising change of heart.

"The US had a very significant role," said a high-ranking official at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

"Not only were they willing to veto, they also worked side-by-side with Israeli diplomats in order to prevent support for the decision within the Security Council. It's not that they just said they would vote against it.

They worked. There were phone calls and messages. The American diplomatic effort is noteworthy."

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman visited Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and Uganda. and in 2014 Rwanda, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Ethiopia, and Kenya.
