Pres. Peres to the Knesset: Israel has not had security for 65 years?

"There is no peace without security and there is no security without peace"
President Shimon Peres

[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: So according to Mr. Peres, Israel has not had
security for 65 years as over the course of the entire 65 years Israel did
not reach a peace agreement with all of its neighbors?]


President Peres addressed the opening of the second winter session of the
19th Knesset which marked 65 years since the foundation of the Knesset

President Shimon Peres, today (Tuesday, 14 January 2014), delivered a speech
to the opening plenary of the second winter session of the 19th Knesset and
addressed the relations between Israel and the United States of America,
"Our relations with the US are a major strategic asset for Israel. We thank
the President of the United States, Barack Obama, for his total commitment
to Israel's security and intelligence needs." There is no doubt that his
desire is to see a Middle East living in peace. "Our deep friendship with
the USA is a central component of Israel's security and a force for the
advancement of peace in the region. The extraordinary commitment of
Secretary of State Kerry to the cause of peace reflects Israel's deep and
serious commitment to peace and is creating the opportunity for an agreement
and mutual understanding."

President Peres stressed that Israel faced a unique opportunity to achieve
peace with the Palestinians and said, "Today a real opportunity has been
created for peace with the Palestinians and even with the wider Arab world,
or at least parts of it. The Prime Minister and the government of Israel
restarted negotiations to achieve peace with the Palestinians. Both sides
know there is no better alternative. Peace must stand on two pillars
diplomacy and security. There is no peace without security and there is no
security without peace."
