Netanyahu: We need pact to preserve Jewish Israel

A two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian peace accord is desirable not because it will have any significant influence on the turmoil roiling through the Middle East, but rather because this will prevent the establishment of a binational state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in London.

Netanyahu, speaking to some 120 MPs and members of the House of Lords from parties across the political spectrum on Wednesday, said the solution to Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians was “a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes a Jewish state, the nation state of the Jewish people.”

He said he favored that solution because he opposed a binational state, and because he has fought in battle.
