The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu is in Berlin, where he had dinner with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, ahead of official talks slated for Thursday.
Angela Merkel will hold fast to the refugee deal made with Turkey no matter what Ankara's requests may bring; she simply has no alternative, writes to Jens Thurau.
Prime Minister Netanyahu seeks to bolster a razor-thin majority in parliament with a far-right alliance. The move may also be an attempt to pull Israel's comparatively moderate military culture farther to the right.
Israel's prime minister has taken a jab at a Paris initiative to restart Mideast peace talks. Netanyahu also questioned France's impartiality over its support of an UNESCO resolution.
A general's comments that there are worrying trends of intolerance in Israel reminiscent of Nazi Germany have been called "outrageous" by the Israeli prime minister. However, the soldier's words also found some support.
