Prime Minister Binyamin Netnyahu said Friday that Israel has attempted to make "sweeping peace offers," but that they do not work.

Netanyahu, addressing the UN General Assembly, said that Israel offered Palestinian almost everything they wanted in 2000, but then PLO-chairman Yasser Arafat rejected the offer and then "launched terror attacks that claimed 1,000 lives."

The prime minister said that "[Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud] Abbas didn't respond to Olmert's offer" and that "Israel's withdrawal from Gaza didn't stop radicals from attacking Israel."
