      Wortzman Sides with Ya'alon: No Need to Pressure Us

      Member of Knesset Avi Wortzman sided, Tuesday, with comments attributed to Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon that Israel has made enough concessions in talks with the Palestinian Authority. The Deputy Minister of Education told Arutz Sheva, "These frequent visits and the wish to force upon us a kind of agreement that is bad for us, which is not right for us and to which we do not agree are not good for the people of Israel."

      Saying he was joining Ya'alon in saying enough is enough, Wortzman stressed, "There is no need to pressure and bring the people of Israel to make concessions to a place which is not good, to concessions in the Jordan Valley, concessions in Jerusalem, concessions that the people of Israel is not willing to do." He added, "This government is not expressing this position. The majority of this government is a national government so this undending pressure to bring the country to an agreement is not correct and we urge it to stop."
