Speaking at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Thursday Interior Minister Gilad Erdan framed the election as a choice between choosing to give up land to the Palestinians without receiving anything in return and between the alternative of negotiating but standing on the condition that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the Jewish homeland.

"Peace is only possible with concessions by both sides," the Interior Minister said. 

Erdan made the comments in reference to the unity deal reached between Labor leader Isaac Herzog and former Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Wednesday evening.
