Danon in Washington: 'Land for Peace' has Failed


Member of Knesset Danny Danon (Likud) said, Thursday, that the Oslo Accords, which led to the creation of the Palestinian Authority, are "finished and a failure."

Speaking at the "Oslo Has Failed - Now What?" conference in Washington, DC, he continued, "When they signed the Oslo Accords I was here to demonstrate against them. The formula of land for peace failed long ago. The idea of ​​two countries [for two peoples] will not work anymore. I make a new proposal of three countries: Israel, Jordan and Egypt. Establishment of a Palestinian state in the heart of the country is like establishing an Al Qaeda state in Washington."
