Likud MK: Abbas' remarks prove Palestinians don’t want peace

Knesset Member Ofir Akunis (Likud) said that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' recent remarks were "additional proof that the Palestinians are not headed towards genuine peace with Israel."


Responding to Abbas' remarks that he does not recognize Israel as a Jewish state, Akunis said, "This means that the Palestinians don't want two states for two people, but two states for one people. A Palestinian recognition of a Jewish state is a basic condition for making progress in the peace process." (Amnon Meranda)
