PM Restates Conditions for PA Peace


Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu said, Sunday morning, "This past weekend marked the 96th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which recognized the right of the Jewish People to a homeland of its own in the Land of Israel. There is no doubt that the international recognition of the Jewish People's right to a state of its own in its historic homeland is important; the refusal to recognize us is the root of the conflict."

Speaking at the opening of the cabinet meeting, he continued, "In order for there to be peace between us and our Palestinian neighbors, they must recognize the right of the Jewish People to a state of its own in its homeland. This means that in a permanent agreement they will drop their national demands, including the right of return and any other national demand on the State of Israel.”
