Israel wants peace with its neighbors, but not at the price of security, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday at a ceremony on Ammunition Hill on the eve of Remembrance Day.
“Not one day has passed without us reaching out to our neighbors in peace. Not even one day, and we still reach out to those of our neighbors that desire peace,” said Netanyahu, who made his statements in the midst of a stalled peace process with the Palestinians.
“Over the years, we have learned that the olive branches of peace will only be attained if we are strong and are willing to defend our country as did those who have fallen here,” he said.
US President Barack Obama has called on Netanyahu to stop construction in Jewish neighborhoods in east Jerusalem. Netanyahu has yet to respond.
Only such an agreement, Barak said, would “ensure a Jewish majority for generations, in clear borders and an end of conflict and claims.”
