Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a swipe at the Labor Party on Wednesday for "waking up" and realizing that "the two-state solution cannot be implemented" at this time.

During remarks to the Knesset, the premier said that Labor had belatedly come around to his view that Israel cannot agree to a Palestinian state so long as the appropriate conditions – recognition of Israel as a Jewish state and full demilitarization – are not met.

"Good morning, Buji," the premier said, aiming his remarks at Labor Party chairman Isaac Herzog. Buji is his Hebrew nickname.

"Welcome to the Middle East," Netanyahu said.
