Netanyahu: Int'l peace proposals are forced on Israel, push it to indefensible borders

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that the relative quiet that preceded Friday's terror attack in the West Bank in which 25-year-old Danny Gonen was killed, "shouldn't fool anyone."

Speaking at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting hours after an additional terror attack in which a Palestinian stabbed and critically wounded a Border Police officer, Netanyahu said that "we are faced with constant attempts to carry out terror attacks - unfortunately some of them succeed."

Addressing the search for Gonen's killer, Netanyahu said that security forces were "working diligently" to find him and bring him to justice.

Netanyahu said that only the intense measures taken by the IDF and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) prevent more terror attacks from being carried out successfully.

Ahead of a visit by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on Sunday, who is expected to push a UN Security Council Resolution regarding a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Netanyahu said that "in the international proposals that are presented to us, and in fact forced upon us, there is no real addressing Israel's security needs and its other national interests."

"They simply try to push us to indefensible borders, while completely ignoring what will exist on the other side of the border," he said. "This will lead to the results that we are seeing, and experiencing at the expense of our flesh from Gaza and Lebanon," Netanyahu said.

He vowed to reject any effort to force a solution to the conflict on Israel from the outside, saying that the only way to reach an agreement was through bilateral negotiations.
