Rajuob: Building settlements won't lead to security and peace

Rajuob Building settlem

Senior Fatah official Jibril Rajuob on Wednesday said that Israelis must realize that they will not achieve peace through settlement construction, stressing that only ending the occupation will lead to peace and security. Jerusalem must understand that it is impossible to speak of two states for two peoples as long as Israel continues to ruin any chances for the establishment of a Palestinian state, Rajoub told Israel Radio. Rajuob went on to explain that if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu extends his hand to coexistence, he "will receive many good things from the Palestinian side," but if he tries to push the Palestinians into a corner, he will lead the whole region into a bloody wave of violence.
