Za #Israel, francuski inicijativa 'osuđeni na propast'




bankisrael“The measured Israeli reaction to the latest flurry of problematic diplomatic activity reflects Jerusalem’s more central security imperatives, as well as its newly-discovered sense of being a significant regional player rather than a besieged small state in a hostile sea,” writes Senior Media Advisor Europe Israel Press Association Yossi Lempkowicz. 

France hosted on 10 June an Initiative for Peace in the Middle East conference to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, with the participation of ministers from the Middle East Quartet – the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations – the Arab League, the UN Security Council and about 20 countries.

Ali nisu pozvani ni Izrael ni Palestinci. Cilj skupa bio je postaviti teren za punopravnu mirovnu konferenciju koja će se održati do kraja godine. Za Izrael je pariška inicijativa osuđena na neuspjeh jer Jeruzalem smatra da mir s Palestincima ne mogu prisiliti države širom svijeta koje sjede i pokušavaju odlučiti o izraelskoj sudbini i sigurnosti kad u tome nemaju izravnog udjela. Mir će, kaže se, doći samo izravnim pregovorima dviju strana, bez preduvjeta.

“The path to peace does not pass though international committees that are trying to coerce an agreement, radicalize Palestinian demands and in doing so, distance peace. The path to peace passes through direct negotiations,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as he already told French Prime Minister Manuel Valls when the latter visited Israel at the end of last month.

“If the countries gathering this week in Paris really want to advance peace, they must join my call to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to enter into direct negotiations,” Netanyahu added.  “That is the only path to peace – there is no other.”

The prime minister insisted that Israel will continue to seek peace, even with the help of other regional players as he recalled that this happened when Israel made peace with Egpt and with Jordan. “That is how it must be with the Palestinians. We will not stop looking for paths to peace,” he said.

Također postoje planovi za regionalni summit u Jeruzalemu koji bi uključivao predstavnike umjerenih arapskih zemalja, uključujući Egipat i Jordan. Dok je novoimenovani ministar obrane Avigdor Lieberman preuzeo dužnost ovog tjedna, Netanyahu je naglasio kako je vlada predana postizanju mira s Palestincima i kao osnovu za moguće rješenje naveo Arapsku mirovnu inicijativu iz 2002. godine.


“We believe the Arab states would give backing to direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians,” said Israel’s Foreign Ministry Director General Dor Gold. “Therefore we prefer a Middle Eastern process and not a process that somebody is trying to create in Paris.”

Zlato je usporedilo pokušaj Francuske da oživi izraelsko-palestinske mirovne pregovore s kolonijalnim naporima iz 1916-a iz svibnja da se podijeli Bliski istok, pozivajući se na sporazum Sykes-Picot o izradi granica regije nakon raspada Otomanskog carstva.

“It was at the apex of the era of colonialism in our area,” Gold said. “Their effort failed as we see today in the deserts of Iraq and Syria. Instead, Israel said the 2002 Arab peace initiative that offers Israel diplomatic recognition from Arab countries in return for a statehood deal with the Palestinians includes positive elements that can help revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians.

“We are willing to negotiate with the Arab states on revisions to that initiative so that it reflects the dramatic changes in the region since 2002 but maintains the agreed goal of two states for two peoples,” Netanyahu said as a response to speech by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

According to Dr Eran Lerman, a senior research associate at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies (BESA Center) “the measured Israeli reaction to the latest flurry of problematic diplomatic activity reflects Jerusalem’s more central security imperatives, as well as its newly-discovered sense of being a significant regional player rather than a besieged small state in a hostile sea”.  He added: “The regional realities in 2016 have generated a very different relationship between Israel and Egypt. The countries both face the same threats to their security – Iran, IS and the Muslim Brotherhood- even if the Egyptian order of priorities is the reverse of the Israeli. The level of security cooperation is unprecedented and President al-Sisi has said so explicitly to foreign visitors.”

Incoming Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman declared about the Arab Peace Initiative: “President Sissi’s speech was very important; it creates a genuine opportunity that obligates us to pick up the gauntlet. I certainly agree that there are some very positive elements in the Arab Peace Initiative that will enable us to conduct serious dialogue with our neighbors in the region.”

Dnevne novine Yediot Aharonot stated that Lieberman has been championing the idea of a comprehensive arrangement between Israel and the Arab world for a long while, and declares: “Now, with Egyptian President al-Sisi promoting just such a move, Lieberman’s commitment to his proclaimed vision will be put to the test.”
