Israel's New President Reuven Rivlin:

Reuven Rivlin

The Presidency: Constitutional Significance

The presidency is a sort of social compass whose nonpartisan character is its raison d’être. The ability of the president to be perceived as someone with whom all Israelis can identify depends on his ability to avoid being a party to debate. The politicization of the presidency would pose a real threat to the institution and its function. The president must be able to serve as a social guide and buffer, even in times of trial and crisis, and to be a person who can show the way to the realization that coexistence is possible even in the passion of profound disagreements. The president must be able to pave the way for us to recognize that we can continue to have a shared Israeli life

Wife of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Amina Abbas, underwent surgery in Tel Aviv's Asuta Hospital and is due to be released on Sunday, according to Israeli media sources.

The surgery was performed on Friday but the presence of the PA president's wife was kept under wraps while her room was heavily guarded around the clock.

Mrs. Abbas's surgery in the heart of Israel takes place at a time of great political tensions with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu placing responsability for the safety of kidnapped yeshiva students Gilad Sha'ar,16, Eyal Yifrach, 19, and Naftali Frankel, 16 on Abbas and the Palestinian unity government he heads.

Netanyahu has charged that the abduction was the direct result of the Fatah-Hamas unity.

“To my regret, this event underscores what we have been saying – myself, the Defense Minister and the Government of Israel – for many months: The pact with Hamas has led to very harsh results, results which are the exact opposite of advancing peace between us and the Palestinians,” Netanyahu said.

“We hold Abu Mazen [Abbas] and the Palestinian Authority responsible for all attacks against Israel that originate from their territory, whether this is Judea and Samaria or the Gaza Strip,” Netanyahu said.
The Palestinian Authority has dismissed the charge.

Palestinian president's wife treated in Israel hospital

Palestinian president's wife treated in Israel hospital

Jerusalem (AFP) - The wife of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has been treated in an Israeli hospital, media reported Sunday, as Israel searched for teenagers believed to be held captive in Palestinian territory.

Israeli news site Ynet said Amina Abbas was admitted to the private Assuta hospital in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

She underwent surgery on her leg before being discharged on Sunday.

The hospital refused to comment on the report, Ynet said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had on Saturday held Abbas responsible for the safe return of three youths Israel said were abducted by the Islamist Hamas movement.

Gilad Shaer, 16, Naftali Frenkel, 16, and Eyal Ifrach, 19 disappeared on Thursday night, 10 days after the establishment of a new Palestinian government of technocrats pieced together by Abbas's Fatah movement and Hamas.

On Sunday, US Secretary of State John Kerry said "many indications point to Hamas' involvement" in their kidnapping.

Palestinian security in the West Bank was cooperating with Israeli forces in its efforts to find the youths, which included detaining 80 Palestinians overnight -- many of them Hamas members.

Abbas is not the only Palestinian leader to prefer Israeli medical facilities for family members.

Earlier this month, the mother-in-law of former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniya was allowed into Israel from Gaza for cancer treatment.

In November, his granddaughter was taken to an Israeli hospital to be treated for an infection in her digestive tract.
