Dozens of Peace Now activists call for renewed negotiations
November 5, 2012 20:00
Dozens of Peace Now activists demonstrated opposite the Likud office in Tel Aviv, calling for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to return to the negotiation table with the Palestinians.
"For four years Netanyahu has been telling us that there is no partner," said Hagid Ofran, who heads group's Settlement Watch. "We came today to let him hear what he refuses to understand: that there is a Palestinian partner that is repeatedly calling clearly for a two-state solution and announcing his opposition to violence."
The group was referring to PA President Mahmoud Abbas's interview with Channel 2 earlier this week, wherein he said he does not want to return to his home town of Safed and that a Palestinian state would be established only in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.
