The past six prime ministers have failed to bring peace with the Palestinians, who are unwilling to accept a Jewish State, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday, at the Knesset’s memorial for assassinated prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.
The Palestinians are "unwilling to give up the dream of returning to Haifa and Jaffa. They educate their children to hate Jews, to see Israel as an imperialist entity and the source of all evil. Rabin hoped this trend would change, but he was met with cruel waves of terrorism and radical Islam," Netanyahu said.
The prime minister pointed out that Israel made peace with its former enemies Egypt and Jordan, but that Rabin and every prime minster since his time was not able to attain peace with the Palestinians, despite their efforts.
