New tender says it is intended for both men and women – but requires applicants to already work for the rabbinical court, effectively disqualifying female candidates.04:02 09.02.16 | 0 comments
Abbas is in a no win situatation. If he goes to talks with Obama and Netanyhu after demanding total freeze, and accepts a partial freeze(9months) he will be seen as capitualating to the Israelis and acceptance of settlements. It has been reported that when he talked to Hilary he said Maale Adium would be included in the new nation of Palestine. At the same time Obama( who has appeared to be more sympathetic to the Pal cause then past US Pres.) is pushing him to come to the table. So if he does not come it would appear to his new friend Obama that his good efforts are in vain. Netanyhu has played his hand well.
