Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli says that she wants the next government to work towards a two-state solution to resolve Palestinian national aspirations, as she launches her Labor party’s campaign in Tel Aviv.

“The next government must renew political discourse and stop hiding behind empty words like ‘managing the conflict’ or ‘reducing the conflict,'” Michaeli says.

Her comments follow her Sunday push at the government’s weekly cabinet meeting to reopen the currently dormant issue of Palestinian statehood.

“Without a two-state solution, we will stay with one state for two nations and that’s the end of the State of Israel as we know it and love it, and we won’t let it happen,” the center-left Labor leader reaffirms.
