    (IsraelNN.com) Hamas spokesman Mahmoud Zahar issued a demand Sunday evening that Israel remove the stripes from its flag. "Israel must remove the two blue stripes from its national flag", Zahar said. "The stripes are symbols of occupation – they signify Israel's borders, stretching from the River Euphrates to the River Nile." The Hamas official's comments followed Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz's assessment at the weekly Cabinet meeting that the newly elected terror group was "acting responsibly so far." Zahar also told CNN's Late Edition that the world should not be asking Hamas to recognize Israel, but rather demanding that the Jewish...

    Tzipi Livni, who is running for Knesset at the head of an independent party, blamed Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett for the violence at the Oz Tzion outpost near Beit El Friday. "Bennett and the extremist rabbis led people to that hilltop on purpose, in order to create friction with IDF soldiers and a situation in which they would refuse orders," Livni wrote on her Facebook page. "These extremists led the people there on Sabbath eve in the knowledge that our children, the IDF soldiers, would have to evict them," she explained. "Netanyahu, who continues to wink toward the extremist...

Hanegbi addressed those at the event and explained his disapproval for current Kadima head MK Shaul Mofaz, and his disagreement with Mofaz’s decision to leave the coalition. Mofaz’s hasty exit from the coalition just weeks after joining upset many of his own MKs. He made the decision to leave...

    MK Shaul Mofaz was elected on Tuesday to be the new chairman of the Kadima party.

The Jericho jail was summer camp and not a real prison, Mofaz told Kol Israel. He denied any connection between the raid in Jericho and the upcoming elections nor, he said, was there coordination with the British or Americans regarding planning when their monitors were leaving the prison site....

A military statement did not say why the policy was being changed, but the newspaper Haaretz reported on its Web site that Maj. Gen. Udi Shani, who headed a committee reviewing the matter, had challenged the existing military position that demolitions were...
