US President Barack Obama has warned Israel that time is running out to agree to a peace deal with the Palestinians.

In an interview aired Sunday with Bloomberg columnist Jeffrey Goldberg, Obama said his central message on the issue to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would be to seize the moment presented in the ongoing round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, which resumed in July.

“If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?” Obama said invoking the words of the Talmudic sage Rabbi Hillel.
