PM Netanyahu Supports Peace Referendum Proposal


PM Netanyahu addressed the Jewish Home-Yesh Atid PA peace agreement referendum proposal at the Likud party meeting Monday, "I disagree with those who oppose the referendum. The implications of any future agreement with the PA are of particular consequence for the entire nation, and such a fundamental issue should only pass if given the seal of approval by a national majority expressing itself on this specific issue. The majority vote we acquired in the elections is not necessarily an automatic approbation for the crucial matter of peace with the PA."
