French Prime Minister Manuel Valls on Saturday said that “Netanyahu must show some faith” in a peace bid being pushed by France, after the Israeli Prime Minister rejected the initiative in favor of direct negotiations with the Palestinians.

Valls is set to arrive in Israel on Saturday evening for a four day visit to the region aimed at advancing the French initiative and an international peace conference in Paris scheduled for June 3.

    Show faith in what … Frances impartiality? France’s goodwill toward Israel and Jews? PA’s desire to live in peace with its Jewish neighbors?

    The French were screwed in Algiers, ran with their tails between their legs. Now they have Algiers in France. I don’t think they are in a position to comment on Israel’s position. They should talk to their Arab mates., PLO et al are all spawn of the Algerian experiment which went very well for them and badly for France. Perhaps the French too are envious of the fact that the Jews have been able to successfully fight the Arab hoards yet they, the mighty French, capitulated. They should tend their own backyard.

    By saying that Jerusalem should be the capital of both states, Valls may be prejudicing the outcome of the talks against the possibility that Jerusalem could remain a unified city under Israeli control. I’d like to know more about how the Arab residents of Jerusalem feel about all this.

    Israel should remain open to the idea of having a mediator rather than insisting on direct talks. Al-Sisi has offered his help in this respect and I think he should be taken up on it. Nothing the mediator does or says is binding on the parties, so why not give it a try?

    Just wondering how has letting in all the Muslim refugees worked out for France? Besides the killings, rapes, firebombings and additional crimes etc.

  • Showing faith in the French Peace Initiative is the logical equivalent of showing faith in Muslims who will never be happy until they wipe all Israel off-the-map and inflict another Holocaust of the Jewish people.

    Why should Israel show faith in France, which proven countless times that it will do anything to appease Muslims?

    When UNICEF made the unsound ruling that the Temple Mount and Westwern Wall was a purely Islamic holy place — with no Jewish connection — France and Spain and others supported this ridiculous decision, while the UK, USA and other sane societies rejected UNICEF’s ruling. France is no friend of Israel and the French PM should be persona non grata.
