Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Tuesday with European Parliament President Prof Jerzy Buzek in Jerusalem.

 

The two discussed various regional issues, including the unilateral Palestinian bid for statehood in the UN, planned for September.

 

 

Netanyahu told Buzek the he aims to push a diplomatic initiative that would see 30 UN-member nations block the PA's bid. "It will not create an opposing majority, but it will balance out the bid's potential support," he said.

 

The prime minister further warned that if the UN allows the Palestinians to "get a taste oh having their way, they'll fall in love with it and will never agree to any compromise again."

 

Netanyahu further said that "peace will not mean Israel is forfeiting land, but rather that the Palestinians are forfeiting the desire to destroy Israel.

 

"Six Israeli prime ministers were willing to accept the two-state solution, but could not reach a peace agreement because the Palestinians would not say six simple words – 'I will accept the Jewish state,'" he added.

 

Buzek on his part reiterated the EU's interest to propel the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, "Especially in view of the Iranian threat."
