He dismissed a formal declaration, made at the 2007 Israeli-Palestinian peace conference that President George W. Bush held in Annapolis, Md., that committed both parties to further "the goal of two states, Israel and Palestine."

I read his speech, his seems to want to acknowledge the 2003 "road map to peace" Bush's earlier plan. This is a way to avoid negotiations with Hamas, I think.

Hamas is a terriorist organization and no negotions should be held with them. The palestineans should have elected another government

Zionists are a terrorist organization. The Israelis should have elected some one else.

Someone ought to say that this guy is a racist and holds extreme right-wing, meaning hawkist and anti-peace, views -- so I will and have !!

Yes, Darwin, it sadly means that more people are going to die, and the basic injustices that fuel Palestinian -& world- hatred will not be alleviated! 'Smug' is not caring an iota about it!

Please, please! watch this video to get a more balanced view on the situation -whatever preconceived views you already hold; however well-informed you believe yourself to be - to view several rarely-seen aspects of the situation, the issues ON THE GROUND, how Israelis & Palestinians are experiencing the present non-solution & failure to address Palestinian grievances, & what the obstacles to the two-state solution are: Is Time Running Out For 2-State Solution - Has It Already ?

April 2: Avigdor Lieberman, the controversial new Israeli foreign minister who leads an ultranationalist Right-wing party, was questioned by police for seven hours on Thursday over allegations of corruption.

From the above Telegraph article:

The allegations against Avigdor Lieberman concerned the receipt of large sums of money from abroad allegedly channelled through shell companies and illegal bank accounts

Less than 24 hours after the Israeli parliament voted in the country's new government, Mr Lieberman answered questions from detectives concerning allegations of bribery, fraud, money-laundering and breach of trust.

So -- not only does he not feel bound to follow the 2-state solution, he doens't feel bound to follow the law, either!
Interesting...

"Police interrogated Avigdor Lieberman for an additional five hours in a bribe-taking and money laundering investigation.

Friday's grilling was the second in a row for the newly installed Israeli foreign minister. Lieberman had already been interrogated for seven hours on Thursday, under advisement that he might be charged. The interrogation was conducted by detectives from the National Fraud and anti-organized crime units.

Lieberman is suspected of using a Cypriot bank account registered under the name of his daughter, Michal, to launder millions of shekels in funds. Police also suspect Lieberman of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes between 2001 and 2004 while serving as national infrastructures minister and as transportation minister, allegedly receiving the funds from two businessmen."

It seems to me that corruption is very likely to rear its ugly head in the new Israeli administration!
