Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he was prepared to make compromises to achieve peace but he rejected President Barack Obama's proposal that Israel return to 1967 borders.
Is peace possible without security? Netanyahu said last week, "security is the foundation of peace. Without it, peace will unravel. With it, peace can be stable and enduring."
As I reviewed the positions on both sides of the conflict, one cannot even begin to fathom how Netanyahu and Abbas will ever come to a peace agreement.
Today, I want to cover one major point of contention in the negotiations: the legitimacy of a homeland for the Jews.
