Mofaz: Israel must come to interim agreement with Palestinians

Israel must strive for an interim agreement with the Palestinians that would ensure the foundation of a Palestinian state with temporary borders, but which would refrain from trying to solve the issues of Palestinian refugees or Jerusalem, Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz said on Saturday. Speaking during a Geneva Initiative conference, Mofaz also opined about the Second Lebanon War, saying that it was a failure due to its management, and not because of the readiness of the army prior to the outbreak of hostilities. Mofaz also spoke about the Senior Lecturers strike, saying that the instability of Israel's leadership was to blame for the continued crisis in higher education.
