Interior Minster Eli Yishai (Shas) said following Netanyahu's speech that every diplomatic discourse should be from a stance of power and responsibility, and not weakness and lawlessness.

Yishai declared a firm “no to territorial concessions, so long there is uncertainty in Arab states and between Fatah and Hamas. Those who wanted us to agree to 1967 borders will not relent even if we agree to the 1948 borders. The Palestinians turned from peace refuseniks into negotiation refuseniks. The forcefulness of incitement has not diminished, and they have yet to recognize the State of Israel.”

“Despite the lack of Palestinian good faith, Israel continues its many efforts to act to create a diplomatic discourse that will not endanger the existence of the State of Israel,” said Yishai.
