Israel's UN Ambassador: Discussions of a "One-State Solution" Are Not Realistic

(Jerusalem Post) Danielle Ziri interviews Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon - Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon told the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that discussions of a "one-state solution" for Israel and the Palestinians are unrealistic. "I haven't heard any major parts of our democracy calling for one state, saying we should apply citizenship [to the Palestinians] and annex all of Judea and Samaria completely. I think it is being used as a threat, that if we won't accept the [Palestinians'] conditions immediately, if we don't sign an agreement now without negotiating, without making sure that [Israel's] security needs are being met, we will find ourselves with one state." Danon also thanked President Trump and Vice President Pence for their response to the latest wave of anti-Semitism in the U.S. "The incidents are very serious and shocking, I would even say. We cannot ignore it. It is scary. I think the words of the administration and the president were very important and I'm sure the authorities will deal with that and make sure they will arrest the people who are doing it. For us, when we see signs of anti-Semitism, no matter where it is taking place, it's something we will not be quiet about."
