Netanyahu Never Ruled Out a Two-State Solution

(U.S. News) Mortimer B. Zuckerman - At Bar-Ilan University on June 14, 2009, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "In my vision of peace, there are two free peoples living side by side." What happened since? Netanyahu's Bar-Ilan olive branch was followed by more rockets from Gaza, foreign subsidies diverted to tunnel building for murder, and hostage-taking. Bar-Ilan was followed by Iran sandwiching Israel north and south between its terrorist client Hamas in Gaza and its terrorist client Hizbullah in Lebanon. Bar-Ilan was followed by the Palestinian Authority making a coalition deal with Hamas, and by more intensive "hate Jews" campaigns in schools and public television, more celebrations of murderers subsidized by the PA. Netanyahu said: "I think that anyone who goes about establishing a Palestinian state today and vacating territory is giving attack territory to extremist Islam to be used against the state of Israel." When Netanyahu says "today," he does not mean that he will not be open to it tomorrow or the day after.
