Jerusalem (TPS) – In a speech at the Knesset on February 10, Prime Minister Netanyahu elaborated upon the vision of a peace agreement with the Palestinians that he spoke of in a speech at Bar Ilan University seven years ago. Netanyahu stressed that his acceptance of a two-state solution with the Palestinian Authority rests upon two necessary conditions.
“The first principle is mutual recognition,” said the prime minister. “The Palestinians demand that we recognize a national state of theirs and they will also have to recognize our national state in any peace agreement. It is only natural for them to give us what they wish for themselves.”
