Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that Israel must prepare for a "political tsunami" following international recognition of a Palestinian state on 1967 borders. "Israel's de-legitimization is in sight and it would be wrong to ignore this tsunami," he said. "A political initiative will minimize the chances along the road."
Baral reiterated his call for the Kadima party to join the government and said elections will not help Israel right now. (Attila Somfalvi)
