Netanyahu Tells Reform Jews that ‘Peace Is not One-Way Street

By: JTA

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial 2013 conference in a video address Sunday, “Peace is not a one-way street. It’s a two-way street” in his efforts for a peaceful solution to the Iranian and Palestinian Authority issues.

He also praised recent efforts to find a compromise solution to interdenominational conflict at the Western Wall and thanked the Reform movement for its efforts to strengthen Jewish identity and American Jews’ connection to Israel.

In large part, the speech repeated the principal points of Netanyahu’s address to the Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly last month in Jerusalem. Netanyahu began by reiterating his frequent message that the best way to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons is through maintaining economic sanctions alongside the threat of military attack.

Netanyahu said that Iran’s repression of civil rights at home, as well as its support for terror abroad; belie the friendly diplomatic posture its leaders have struck recently. “It talks the talk, but it walks the walk of death every day,” he said.

Addressing ongoing Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the Prime Minister repeated his call for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. He also emphasized the need for an agreement that will ensure Israel’s security.

  2. Dan Kaufman says:

    why would israel recognize the palestinians as a nation?
    they are arabs, who happened to migrate to palestine when it was part of the otoman empire.
    they can move to any arab country

  4. jerry says:

    Want peace?

    two choises

    1 Destroy ideology of Islam.
    unlikely because G-D empowered Islam by giving them oil like water (Isaiah 34.9) without oil Islam is powerless.
    money opens doors and receives favour

    2 all Jews recognize and receive Jesus as their messiah, when G-D in his time will open their eyes.

    G-D blesses Israel!

  5. Ahron Ebert says:

    Isiah 34:9 says Edom. Edom is Issau not Ismael. Rashi says Edom is Rome. That is Edom are the Catholics.

  6. Again big mouth Netanyahu.

  7. Dan Kaufman is right. If you know history you know there is no such place as a Palestine as a Country. It is a complete invention…BUT millions ARE buying into it. Propaganda works. Just ask Hussein Obama.
