Netanyahu: The Jews are Home – And We’re Not Leaving

Israel wants to make peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Arab world, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the United Nations during his address Tuesday. “Israel continues to seek an historic compromise with our Palestinian neighbors… We want peace based on security and mutual recognition,” he declared. Netanyahu laid out what he said are Israel’s needs: that any future Palestinian state be demilitarized, and that the PA recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
