Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a special Knesset meeting marking forty years since the Yom Kippur War, "Making peace with the Palestinians, led by a government that does not call for our destruction, is important to us. We do not want a bi-national state, and we do not want war."
He added, "I want peace that lasts. It could be it will not be such a warm peace, it may be even be a cold peace, but it must last. We will not miss a real opportunity with a partner who is also willing to adapt to reality." (Moran Azulay)
