Israel Bids Adieu to Joe Lieberman, a Staunch Ally in U.S. Senate

In a farewell interview with Haaretz, retiring U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman calls for Palestinian elections, American military aid for Assad's opponents and an end to Congress' partisan feuds.

The Palestinian Authority's demand that Israel freeze settlements is "an excuse" not to return to the negotiating table, said Senator Joe Lieberman in a wide-ranging interview with Haaretz ahead of his retirement next month.
