This week in Israel, debate is split between leaders who believe in actively engaging the Palestinian Authority and moderate Arab states, and leaders who oppose a two-state solution. Among the Palestinians, conflict still surrounds Fatah and Hamas, especially over the payment of Hamas civil servant wages. On Wednesday night, Barak Obama addressed the American people and outlined a plan to combat and defeat the threat posed by the ISIS. Throughout this week, tensions in Jerusalem have been reaching new heights as clashes between Jews and Palestinians increase.
