There cannot be compromises in the war on terror, but peace can come soon if there is enough good will, opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday, during a visit to Ramallah.

“The recent terrorist attacks could lead to a third inifada, which we must prevent with all the tools we have,” Herzog posited. “We must have an uncompromising war on terror, and I am even more extreme than [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu on that subject.”

At the same time, Herzog said both Israeli and Palestinians need to feel that there is hope, and that will happen if courageous steps are taken to restart negotiations, including a true dialogue between leaders.

“We should not fear. We must dare and ensure a better future for our nations,” he stated.
