Lieberman: Concessions Won’t Bring Peace

No past Israeli concession has brought peace with the Palestinian Authority, and even a full withdrawal to the 1949 armistice line would not bring peace, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday, speaking at an agricultural conference in Kibbutz Revivim. The Israeli withdrawal from Gaza did not bring peace or security, he noted.

Lieberman warned of “severe consequences” if the PA went forward with its plan to ask the UN General Assembly for recognition as a state. He also expressed concern over the possibility of a Hamas takeover in Judea and Samaria similar to that in Gaza.
