Statement by PM Netanyahu before possible UN vote today

Resolution is so one-sided, it doesn't advance peace, it pushes it backwards

Statement by PM Netanyahu

None of the vital interests of peace appear in the resolution that will be
put forward before the General Assembly today and that is why Israel cannot
accept it.

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Thursday, 29 November
2012), at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, made the
following statement:

"Israel is prepared to live in peace with a Palestinian state, but for peace
to endure, Israel's security must be protected. The Palestinians must
recognize the Jewish state and they must be prepared to end the conflict
with Israel once and for all.

None of these vital interests, these vital interests of peace, none of them
appear in the resolution that will be put forward before the General
Assembly today and that is why Israel cannot accept it. The only way to
achieve peace is through agreements that are reached by the parties
directly; through valid negotiations between themselves, and not through UN
resolutions that completely ignore Israel’s vital security and national
interests. And because this resolution is so one-sided, it doesn't advance
peace, it pushes it backwards.

As for the rights of the Jewish people in this land, I have a simple message
for those people gathered in the General Assembly today: No decision by the
UN can break the 4000-year-old bond between the people of Israel and the
land of Israel."
