A "daring" peace initiative by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is vital to the country's security and international standing, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said during an interview with The LA Times, published Thursday. Barak said that without one, Israel could face increased isolation and mass popular protests.

The defense minister's comments came ahead of Netanyahu's White House meeting with US President Barack Obama on Friday.
