Paris - French authorities are expecting 72 countries to attend Sunday’s Middle East peace conference in Paris — but not Israel or the Palestinians.

Government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said Wednesday both Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been invited to come to France after the conference to be informed of its conclusions. Netanyahu has declined the invitation — saying only direct negotiations will produce a solution.

Abbas is expected to visit the French capital at the end of the week on the sidelines of the conference. It was unclear whether he would meet French President Francois Hollande.

Participants will include U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

France wants “to restart the (negotiation) process at a moment when it has been largely abandoned,” Le Foll said.

This summit is not even newsworthy. We all know exactly what will result. There will be a world cry for concessions from Israel, and pressure to give up land, security, and identity. The Palestinians might not attend, as others will do their calling. Their time might be better spent, according to them, playing video games or watching movies. This body will excuse, or even license and support acts of terror against Israel. However, there are those who wish to spend their taxpayers' money entertaining another anti-Israel fest. Yes, I believe that Kerry y"sh will join forces with them, and will not utter a single defensive syllable. But it does get Kerry and many other sonei Yisroel a free trip to France where they will be wined and dined of delicacies of France, French cuisine, fine wines, and the lewdness for which France claims its fame. Such entertainment is seen as a basic human need, and few global politicians want to miss such an opportunity.

Our Answer to the 70 Nations of the World.
Bereishis - In the beginning: Said Rabbi Isaac: It was not necessary to begin the Torah except from “This month is to you,” (Exod. 12:2) which is the first commandment that the Israelites were commanded, (for the main purpose of the Torah is its commandments, and although several commandments are found in Genesis, e.g., circumcision and the prohibition of eating the thigh sinew, they could have been included together with the other commandments). Now for what reason did He commence with “In the beginning?” Because of [the verse] “The strength of His works He related to His people, to give them the inheritance of the nations” (Ps. 111:6). For if the nations of the world should say to Israel, “You are robbers, for you conquered by force the lands of the seven nations [of Canaan],” they will reply, "The entire earth belongs to the Holy One, blessed be He; He created it (this we learn from the story of the Creation) and gave it to whomever He deemed proper When He wished, He gave it to them, and when He wished, He took it away from them and gave it to us.

they're right Israel needs a 2 state solution to revoke the Arabs citizenship before they become a majority.

We should send in a delegation of our strongest shul back bench opinionated talkers. With no Jews attending to talk over another person expressing an opinion (2 Jews three opinions), the real delegate bozos may actually be afforded the ability to express an opinion, none of which will be favorable to Israel.

Oh my goodness. Boy, are you taking out our sages words from context.

Hashem gave us Eretz Yisrael with conditions. Currently, Eretz Yisrael belongs to the nation's. Check out Kesubos 110B. Check the basic understanding what Galus means.

Don't state the teaching our sages, when you don't understand the timeframe and context of their holy words.

I hear you. But the Paris summit is nothing but a Muslim/Arab show, and it will accomplish nothing except to challenge the sovereignty of Israel (even though it is a secular government). I'm not a Zionist, but I hate the terrorists of the world with unbridled passion. And this summit will be nothing more than a formalization of an excuse to murder Jews everywhere in the world. Yes, Muslim terror legitimizes killing Jews in Paris, New York, Chicago, LA, etc. It makes the Palestinian terrorists into a legitimate "nation", as if there is a shadow of civility or morality to them. It is the supreme "political correctness" that violates all of humanity and moral value. They want, so they take. And this summit will justify taking away from Israel.

Now, let's check history. Israel gives the Arabs, and makes major concessions. Arab response - terror. Israel proposes major land givebacks, leaving itself a fraction of its own land. Arab response - terror. Here's all of the Gaza strip, dislocating many thousands of Jews. Arab response - launching pad for rockets and terror. No building of infrastructure. Even their hospitals and UN schools are launch pads. Is that moral?

About 6 million children die of malnutrition every year around the globle. Over 1 billion people don't have toilets in their homes. There is a dictatorship in Venezuela starving its people. Why don't we hear these nations getting together to solve these more serious problems? Why are they showing they care about Palestinians when we know they loath religious Muslims?

It's all because they hate Jews more than their real enemies.
