Israel: Release Kidnapped Soldiers, End Terror Attacks Before Peace Talks

[Ynet News] Yitzhak Benhorin - Israel rejected Thursday an Arab League proposal to the UN Security Council to start peace negotiations with Arab countries based on returning to '67 borders and establishing a Palestinian state whose capital is in Jerusalem. Israeli Ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman said, "Any progress will start with the release of the kidnapped and the cessation of terror." "No one wants peace more than us. We want to actualize the vision of two states according to the Road Map, but tragically we received terror. We are committed to talking with Palestinians interested in peace. However, we can't sweep the problems under the rug, and we must ensure that a Palestinian state won't be a terror base."
