"The war in the South proves that Israel cannot take risks in the West Bank," said Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday.

Speaking at a meeting with the Kenyan Vice President Dr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka in Jerusalem, Rivlin asserted that "it is our duty is to defend ourselves."

The Kenyan VP visited Ramallah as a part of his tour of the Middle East and passed on a message from Mahmoud Abbas, saying the PA president is willing to sign a peace agreement with Israel.

"We need actions, not nice words from the Palestinians," Rivlin replied. "Unfortunately, the Palestinians have yet to prove they are able to take political or military responsibility that would allow the citizens of Israel and their children to live their lives in peace and security," he added.
