Yesh Atid leader MK Yair Lapid addressed The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in the capital on Wednesday, calling on the Palestinians to "Grow up already," employing a quote from Alan Dershowitz.

"You want freedom? Free yourselves from the past and build yourself a future," Lapid said."Self pity is not a very efficient policy," he added.

Lapid said that the Palestinians should take a page from the Jews after the Holocaust.

"We didn't look for someone to blame after the Holocaust, we searched for a way to change it."
