Netanyahu: Israel to keep security control over West Bank

Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon visited Ramallah last week to meet with Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, marking a rare direct meeting between high-level Israeli and PA officials.

The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 mandated that the United States mission be relocated from Tel Aviv no later than May 31, 1999.

One of the regulars, Ariel Schneider, a small-time contractor, believes Palestinians don't need a state.

The latest round of negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, under the auspices of former Secretary of State John Kerry, broke down in April 2014.

Salfit is just 30 miles from Tel Aviv, but Israeli travel restrictions keep him on the road for nearly as much time each day as he spends working. The rally was organised by Israel's centrist Peace Now movement, which faded from the Israeli political scene for several years but is making a comeback.
