Netanyahu, Hollande Make Landmark Speeches in Knesset

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday invited Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to address the Knesset and publicly recognize Jewish history and heritage in the Land of Israel, AFP reports. "I call on him from here today: let's break the deadlock," Netanyahu said in a special address to the Knesset, in honor of French President Francois Hollande's visit.

"Come to the Israeli Knesset and I'll come to Ramallah," Netanyahu said, referring to Abbas's Palestinian Authority headquarters.
