Maximum age of patient chaperones who must undergo a security check was raised from 35 to 55, meaning anyone younger than 55 won’t be able to get permission, Palestinians say.10:11 01.12.15 | 0 comments
Israel is in a position where it needs to indicate to the Palestinians that it's seriously undertaking the peace initiatives which are essentially based on UN Resolutions 242 and 338, and ceasing settlements development in the West Bank should have been so. It's not a matter of setting preconditions of " how they should conclude", which PM Netanyahu seems to have an idea, but perhaps his coalition members don't, it's a matter of committing to the obligations Israel has signed unto, that is, the Road Map supported by the Quartet. With regards to the other issues of historical restoration of Israeli sites and infrastructure development of roads, the need for societies to have knowledge of the past to appreciate the present and plan for the future - that's indication of a responsible government, but on the diplomatic end we're still unconvinced as of yet. But we'll see soon.
