Former prime minister and opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu focuses on the Abraham Accords as a defeat for Palestinian rejectionism in his speech to the virtual Christian Media Summit, calling it the “first time Israel made peace for peace.”
Netanyahu calls this a “novel concept” and “the way of the future.”
“We removed the Palestinian veto,” he says. “Palestinians don’t want peace with Israel. The Palestinians don’t want a state next to Israel. They want a state instead of Israel.”
Netanyahu adds that Arab countries were also pushed toward Israel because of the specter of a nuclear Iran, which “wants to dominate and conquer all these Arab lands and turn everyone against these forces of moderation and the future.”
“This is the sign of the future,” he concludes.
