Israel should recognize Palestine as a full member of the United Nations, outgoing Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Saturday at a weekly cultural event in Holon.

"Israel will give the Palestinians sovereignty and independence and in return, they will recognize Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people and will guarantee security arrangements," he said.

Ayalon called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to say to the Palestinians: "I am prepared to recognize you, but you have to recognize me."

Ayalon also said Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas must state in Arabic - rather than in Hebrew or English - that he recognizes Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people. He opined that such as statement would have a huge impact on generations to come.
