  • Igor Dodon
    Igor Dodon “We are categorically opposed to this referendum. We are not saying 'no' to talks with the EU and we are not opposed to the EU. We oppose Sandu using it as an instrument for her own interests and those of her party. We are therefore asking voters during the campaign not to take part in the referendum.” 8 hours ago
  • Ben Hodges
    Ben Hodges “Since the fall of Avdiivka in Ukraine's east on February 17 [2024], its forces have oozed forward, swallowing several villages, as Ukrainian forces have performed tactical retreats. Here we are in April [2024], and [the Russians] are oozing out. Why is that? I think it's because that's the best the Russians can do. They do not have the capability to knock Ukraine out of the war. Russia lacked the ability to equip large armoured formations that could move rapidly, with supporting artillery, engineers and logistics. I don't think it exists. That's why I feel fairly confident that the mission for [Ukrainian] general Oleksandr Syrskyi for the next several months is to stabilise this as much as he can to buy time for Ukraine to grow the size of the army, to rebuild the defence industry of Ukraine, as well as give us time to find more ammunition for them. I think of 2024 as a year of industrial competition. So the army has got to buy time.” 10 hours ago

“Netanyahu must have calculated when he hit the Iranian Consulate in Damascus that the Iranians would retaliate, and that this would swing the Americans and their Western allies behind Israel. And that's worked, remarkably well. It's all gain for Netanyahu if he has the wisdom to take the win, or at least to retaliate in a limited way.”

“Prime Minister Netanyahu is the architect of the relationship with the United States, and he's the architect of his coalition government. He is manipulating both of them. As far as he's concerned, he's looking for his best options. I think he is already discussing and negotiating with President Biden about the price for not responding to Iran that some might expect or his ministers want. Now the price could be a number of things: one, more American support. More unconditionality of American support - definitely clearing criticism of Israel's indiscriminately bombing Gaza and so forth. Netanyahu will probably get more money, he will get more aid, he will get more American support.”

“We already know the war cabinet has not approved a response and the Americans had a big share in it, so it looks as if Israel won't respond for a while and we'll go back to our business in Gaza. Prime Minister Netanyahu still needs to resolve two things in Gaza: the release of captives and the Hamas battalions. I think Netanyahu might use this wave of support for Israel during the Iranian attack to go down to Rafah. But he cannot do it without fully coordinating with the Americans. This is the issue that is really bothering him, because without going back to Rafah he cannot describe the war as a victory.”

“I've just spoken with Prime Minister Netanyahu to reaffirm America's ironclad commitment to the security of Israel. I told him that Israel demonstrated a remarkable capacity to defend against and defeat even unprecedented attacks - sending a clear message to its foes that they cannot effectively threaten the security of Israel.”

“Biden isn't looking for a Mideast war during an election year. The GOP [Republican Party] are another matter. If, however, Iran were to directly hit targets within Israel or an Israeli embassy somewhere in the world, then Biden would be under huge domestic pressure to respond militarily. If this should happen, we would be on the precipice of a wider regional war, and Netanyahu's plan for instigating this crisis will have come to fruition.”

“The US cannot beg Netanyahu to stop bombing civilians one day and the next send him thousands more 2,000-pound bombs that can level entire city blocks. We must end our complicity: No more bombs to Israel.”

“I think what is slowly developing is global isolation and condemnation for Israel, it's developing into a situation where it could become a pariah state. Go back to apartheid in South Africa - that country was eventually suspended from the United Nations, for 20 years it wasn't even let to take part in UN activities. And I think it's that sort of isolation and global disdain that Israel might be facing, and it's exactly that that this weekend the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned Prime Minister Netanyahu of when he talked about the possible Rafah offensive.”

“Israel's latest attack on al-Shifa Hospital has shown that, rather than eliminating Hamas, Israel is attempting to eliminate anything that walks or breathes in Gaza. Palestinians have been displaced from their homes to schools, hospitals and other protected facilities that have nonetheless come under attack. What's more no distinction is being made between the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, and the government officers simply carrying out their duties. Anyone who works for a ministry under Hamas and their relatives is considered punishable by killing. As long as the US and other allies, who have warned against a military operation in Rafah, take no action to back their words, Israel will do as it pleases. In a change of tactic, the US is now being used as a scapegoat by Netanyahu for any future failures in eliminating Hamas in Gaza. “America is now being blamed for not committing to Israel's self-defence [in Rafah] and causing it to fail.”

“At this critical juncture, I believe a new election is the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel, at a time when so many Israelis have lost their confidence in the vision and direction of their government. Netanyahu surrounded himself with far-right ministers and has been too willing to tolerate the civilian toll in Gaza, which is pushing support for Israel worldwide to historic lows. Israel cannot survive if it becomes a pariah.”

“The families of the Israeli prisoners are not stupid. They know the Israeli army directly participated in operations that killed more than 10 captives. It also failed to free any of them, except for two who were not in the possession of resistance groups in exchange for money. Protests within Israeli society have escalated against the Netanyahu government due to its inability to return the captives; however, they are not enough to threaten the coalition government or overthrow it. However, if the protests are bolstered by the larger movement that was igniting the streets of Israel in the spring and summer of 2023, the equation may change.”

“The United States, which has helped fund the Israeli military for years, cannot sit back and allow hundreds of thousands of innocent children to starve to death. As a result of Israeli bombing and restrictions on humanitarian aid, the people of Gaza are facing an unprecedented humanitarian disaster. Whether Netanyahu's right-wing government likes it or not, the United States must immediately begin to airdrop food, water, and other lifesaving supplies into Gaza.”

“He [Netanyahu] is adamant about continuing to the southern tip of Gaza, where, as we've heard from our correspondent, over one million Palestinians are concentrated. This means so many things can go wrong now, in terms of the mass massacre of people, or, what we've been fearing all along, not just a massacre of people but the expulsion of the Palestinians into the Sinai. This is the time for whoever has leverage, or for whoever cares, especially those in Washington, those in London, but also those in Riyadh and Cairo, to move now, before it's too late.”

“Israel's political leaders, military commanders and persons holding official positions have systematically and in explicit terms declared their genocidal intent. These statements are then repeated by soldiers on the ground in Gaza as they engage in the destruction of Palestinians and the physical infrastructure of Gaza. [Netanyahu's comments on October 28, 2023, urging ground troops preparing to enter Gaza to 'remember what Amalek has done to you'] This refers to the Biblical command by God to Saul for the retaliatory destruction of an entire group of people. The evidence of genocidal intent is not only chilling, it is also overwhelming and incontrovertible.”

“[Smotrich] didn't want that discussion [on the day after] to take place. He is very much against the Palestinian Authority [PA] having any rule in Gaza post the war. Netanyahu cancelled the war cabinet, worried it would fracture his coalition, fracture his government and put his position as prime minister at risk. The war cabinet was also meant to discuss a deal with Hamas - negotiated by the Americans, the Qataris and the Egyptians - about exchanging captives for Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli jails.”

“Israel has no good options after its bad war ends. This may be its last chance to pull away from the brink, stop the war, embrace US President Joe Biden's vision of a two-state solution, impractical as it is today, and accept America's red lines for Gaza: no to reoccupation, no to ethnic cleansing and no to shrinking its territories. But Netanyahu, along with his fanatic coalition, who've long taken America for granted, have once again ignored - read rejected - America's advice to the detriment of both sides.”

“Israel's primary goal for a ground invasion would be to perform a very public demonstration of power and might that [PM Benjamin] Netanyahu might be able to present to an Israeli public that is increasingly calling for his resignation. [Netanyahu is] very keen that before there can be any de-escalation, the public perception is restored to one that views Israel as this overwhelming power and the Palestinians as a weak power.”

“The far-right coalition of Netanyahu's government demand that instigators and ringleaders should be deported. The coalition blames the high court for blocking attempts to deport people in the past. Opposition members of the Knesset say successive governments have failed to grasp this issue and deal with the situation. There's politics involved in this. Netanyahu clearly wants to be seen to be doing something.”

“The situation in which eight medium and small parties are forming a coalition has never happened before. It will not be easy. Netanyahu is still around. We should cross our fingers and hope that this government will not only oust Netanyahu, but it will also be able to perform and to be sustainable.”

“It is an alliance between eight parties that go from the left to the far right, with advocates of illegal settlement activity and expansion, to proponents of the two-state solution, so [these are] people who don't really have anything in common except the desire to oust Netanyahu. That's the glue of this coalition – how long that glue can keep them together is what a lot of Israelis are wondering.”

“It's still too early to declare that (the) 'Bibi era' of Israeli politics has ended. But if change is ultimately achieved, Netanyahu will have been toppled by his colleagues on the right, who had it with his leadership.”
