"It is intolerable that the minister in charge of presenting Israel's policies, speaks against its policies and belittles them," Braverman said.
Lieberman on Sunday fiercely attacked the diplomatic
process with the Palestinians that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu began in
Washington last week, telling Israel Beiteinu activists in the capital that a
peace deal is “unachievable.”
In a lengthy address to more than a
at the Rimonim (formerly Shalom) Hotel, Lieberman criticized
previous governments and his own for not learning the lessons of 17 years of
failed diplomatic negotiations.
He said he gets asked all the time why he
is against hope, and he responds that he is for hope but against
“It must be understood that signing a comprehensive agreement
in which both sides agree to end the conflict and end all of their claims and
recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people is a goal that is not
achievable in the next year or in the next generation, so any historic
compromises or painful concessions won’t help,” he said.
The best that
could come out of the talks was a long-term interim agreement with the
Palestinians, Lieberman said.
