Vice PM Moshe Ya'alon: "Let’s instead talk about a path that we must follow, and that path is construction. We need to invest in education, infrastructure, settlement, science, and technology. This is the real hope. There is no partner for an agreement.”
There is no place for a Palestinian state alongside Israel at the current time, Vice Prime Minister and Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon said on Saturday. Ya'alon is largely thought to be first in line to be appointed defense minister in the new government after the January 22 elections.
"The person who is refusing to come to the negotiating table is [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas," Ya'alon said at a cultural event in central Israel on Saturday. "The goals of Abbas are the same as the goals of Hamas."
