    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — Israel has made no new proposals in meetings with Palestinians about the possibility of resuming formal peace talks, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday.

    The sides met twice so far in Jordan, and two more meetings are set for Saturday and for Jan. 25, Abbas told members of his Fatah movement.

    The Palestinians agreed to the low-level exploratory talks in the Jordanian capital of Amman in order not to be seen as the side torpedoing peace efforts. However, Abbas said nothing has been achieved so far.

    "Until now, there is nothing new in the dialogue that is going on in Amman," Abbas told Fatah leaders, according to the Palestinian news agency Wafa. "We are not authorized to speak about what is going on in Amman, but our demands are known, and the Israelis didn't present something we can accept."

    It is clear Mr. Tinmore is an anti-Semite.

    How are the Israelis supposed to just give the Palestinians that? I thought they were forming their own country?

    JERUSALEM - Safeguarding Israel’s Jewish majority must be a national priority, according to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. “We must ensure that the State of Israel has a definite Jewish majority, or otherwise the notion of a Jewish state will become void,” the Israeli prime minister said on Monday during a Knesset address in memory of Zionist visionary Theodor Herzl. Olmert, like his predecessor Ariel Sharon, has justified his plan to quit parts of the West Bank by invoking the demographic threat posed by growing number of Arabs.

    "Changing Israel's Marriage Law"
    The Jewish Week of Greater New York
    April 4, 2006
    The Jewish Week | Editorial & Opinion | The Jewish Week

    Non-Orthodox Jewish couples are forced to submit to an Orthodox marriage ceremony with an Orthodox rabbi and are compelled to attend classes on family purity. No Israeli may marry outside her faith community. Hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens from the former Soviet Union who are not Jewish or whose Jewish ancestry is in doubt are unable to marry at all inside Israel. And more women every year are chained to men they wish to divorce but who will not give them the get required by Jewish law.

    Despite these problems, Israel’s Religious Zionist and haredi communities insist that holding on to the marriage reins is necessary for Jewish continuity. If Jews are allowed to marry outside Orthodox parameters, they say, a “split in the nation” will result.
