Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should begin a new diplomatic initiative now that will prove his commitment to the two-state solution, a group of dovish former security officials wrote in a letter that was released Monday.
The security officials include former Shin-Bet chief Ami Ayalon and former central command head Amram Mitzna, who were both Labor MKs, and former northern command head major-general (Res.) Amiram Levine, who was Netanyahu’s commander in the IDF.
"He was a great soldier," Levine said. "Getting chosen by the people means he has leadership and he should use it. I myself don’t know if it’s possible to make peace but we need to take advantage of the opportunity of mutual interests with the moderate Arab world."
