A Peaceful Palestinian State Is an Israeli Interest

[Ministry of Foreign Affairs] Tzipi Livni - Israeli Foreign Minister Livni told the Paris donors conference on Monday: "The establishment of a peaceful and prosperous Palestinian state that respects law and order and fulfills the legitimate national aspirations of its people is not just a Palestinian dream - it is also an Israeli interest." "With your assistance, these efforts can help produce effective, transparent and accountable Palestinian governance, security forces that fight terrorism comprehensively, bring law and order and ensure the principle of 'one authority, one gun,' and educational institutions that end incitement and prepare the next generation for coexistence and economic progress." "I hope also that we can work to rid Gaza of terror, and restore it to the control of the legitimate Palestinian government so that reform and economic development can be possible there as well."
