World leaders including the U.S. and Russia declared Tuesday they are united in wanting a negotiated and peaceful end to the Syrian civil war that will produce a government "under a top leadership that inspires public confidence."
A senior Palestinian official on Sunday rejected the idea of a partial Israeli settlement freeze as a way of restarting peace talks, a sign of tough times ahead for the Obama administration's new attempt to bring the sides together.
As a native and lifelong resident of North Dakota I was very disappointed to read how the government and Veterans Affairs Committee handled the “Peace Resolution.” I am not sure whether I support the resolution as originally written or not. Frankly, that doesn’t matter. This resolution was introduced on Jan. 27. It certainly shouldn’t have caught anyone by surprise. If it did, they were not doing their job. I wasn’t even interested in the bill at the time and I knew it was coming through the Legislature.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Thursday it is near to securing an agreement between Israel and the Palestinians to resume direct peace talks. Some U.S. officials said an announcement could be imminent.
The State Department said an agreement was “very, very close” but that details were still being worked out. An announcement could come as early as Friday or Saturday, said administration officials familiar with the matter. They spoke on condition of anonymity due to the delicacy of the ongoing diplomacy.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought to warm rocky relations on Tuesday, declaring that any talk of a rift is unfounded. Obama said the U.S.-Israeli bond is “unbreakable.”
The president had praise for his guest following the pair’s meeting at the White House, hailing Israel’s recent decision to greatly ease its 3-year blockade of the Gaza Strip as “real progress.” And he said he believes Netanyahu “wants peace” with the Palestinians and is serious about resuming the face-to-face Mideast peace talks that broke off in December 2008.
My grandparents came from Norway. For the first time in my adult life I am not proud of my country of heritage, Norway. I am so ashamed of my Norwegian roots that I fasted for a week. Yep, I gave up lutefisk for one whole week. Things have to be pretty fishy to get this Norwegian Lutheran to give up lutefisk.
Iranian authorities have confiscated Nobel Peace laureate Shirin Ebadi’s medal, the human rights lawyer said Thursday, in a sign of the increasingly drastic steps Tehran is taking against any dissent.
In Norway, where the peace prize is awarded, the government said the confiscation of the gold medal was a shocking first in the history of the 108-year-old prize.

Earlier this month, President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” To young Americans, like me, the selection of our president for this honor is recognition of his capacity to give the people of this world hope for a better future.
Congratulations to President Barack Obama on his Nobel Peace Prize. I hope he now can do something to earn it. He could begin by bringing peace to American streets, such as those in his hometown.
Less than nine months into his presidency, it obviously is early for Obama to be lauded for great achievements. Yet the Norwegian Nobel Committee seems to be saying, why wait? They’re giving him a big “E” for his efforts.

”We live in a quiet house in a noisy neighborhood.” Our tour guide’s assessment aptly sums up the difference between his native Jordan and other countries in the Middle East, a difference created almost 15 years ago when Jordan signed the historic peace treaty with Israel.
In Galilee, northern Israel, there are 1.1 million citizens, evenly divided between Jews and Arabs. There, Rabbi Marc Rosenstein has created a bilingual Internet newspaper with Hebrew and Arabic sections that he describes as “a safe space characterized by openness, fairness and balance — where all opinions can be expressed, civilly.” This bridge of a newspaper is named Dugrinet. (“Dugri” means “straight talk” in both Hebrew and Arabic.)
Russia stunned the West on Tuesday by recognizing the independence claims of two Georgian breakaway regions, and U.S. warships plied the waters off of Georgia in a gambit the Kremlin saw as gunboat diplomacy.
