MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) took part in a local cultural event Saturday and said that "Israel must stop being an occupying force. Peace with the Palestinians is an existential necessity."
Mofaz further added that: "The relative quiet here is only superficial. Eventually, there will be an eruption, hence it is better we take the initiative. Not for nothing did Central Command Major General Nitzan Alon comment on this issue expressing his concern." (Moran Azulay)
