Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is only ready for a virtual Palestinian state, Gush Shalom spokesperson Adam Keller said following the prime minister's speech to AIPAC Monday.

According to a statement released by the group on Tuesday, Keller said "In his AIPAC speech, Netanyahu actually canceled out his Bar Ilan University speech, and showed that he is not ready for the establishment of a real Palestinian state, but only a virtual one, and paid lip service with empty words."

"In his opposition to the principle of 1967 lines as a basis for the border between Israel and Palestine - the only route to peace that has been agreed upon by the entire international community including the US president himself - Netanyahu continues to be firm against peace."
