Netanyahu: Israel Has Been Doing Its Part for Peace
(Daily Alert)

Prior to his talks with President Obama at the White House, Prime Minister Netanyahu said Monday: “The 20 years that have passed since Israel entered the peace process have been marked by unprecedented steps that Israel has taken to advance peace….We entirely left Gaza. We’ve not only frozen settlements, we’ve uprooted entire settlements. We’ve released hundreds of terrorist prisoners, including dozens in recent months. And when you look at what we got in return, it’s been scores of suicide bombings, thousands of rockets on our cities fired from the areas we vacated, and incessant Palestinian incitement against Israel. So Israel has been doing its part, and I regret to say that the Palestinians haven’t.”

    “Now, I know this flies in the face of conventional wisdom, but it’s the truth. And the people of Israel know that it’s the truth because they’ve been living it. What they want is peace. What we all want fervently is peace. Not a piece a paper but a real peace; a peace that is anchored in mutual recognition of two nation states that recognize and respect one another, and solid security arrangements on the ground.”  (Prime Minister’s Office)
