The Day in Israel: Fri Apr 3rd, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

In the wake of yesterday’s terror attack, Ha’aretz reports that Israeli security forces fear the residents of Bat Ayin or neighboring towns will try to avenge the murder of 16-year-old Shlomo Nativ.

Because that’s the main concern now. Not that more terrorist attacks will be attempted.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

4:45PM: Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has blasted comments made by her successor Avigdor Lieberman.

Livni said Lieberman had acted “against Israel’s interests,” and had “wiped out in 20 seconds” years of efforts made to advance the peace process.

“This is a process of negotiations toward a final settlement,” Livni told Israel Radio. “It has received international recognition and the world supports it.”

Livni said she had “expected Netanyahu to declare: ‘What the foreign minister said is not my opinion,’ but I haven’t heard that yet.”

As I mentioned a few days ago, I agree with Lieberman. And I’m not alone.

By the way, technically speaking, one could make a coffee in 20 seconds. Livni should take note.

6:07AM: Here is part of Caryl Churchill’s Seven Jewish Children play.

Tell her its vile anti-Semitism.

5:55AM: US State Department spokesman Robert Wood has said that the US is going to pursue the two-state solution because “we believe it’s in the best interests of all the parties in the region.”

How rewarding terrorism by giving the perpetrators a state they could have had over 60 years ago, and which they intend to use as the launchpad for further attacks on Israel, is beyond me.
