In his long-awaited foreign policy speech set to be delivered Sunday evening at Bar-Ilan University, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will
call for the establishment of a demilitarized Palestinian state to exist alongside Israel, sources in the prime minister's office said on Sunday
Will it be possible for a "demilitarized" Palestinian nation to exist? I really don't think so. The leaders of the Palestinians don't really
care for Israel too much and often see things that Israel does as a threat to Palestinians. Due to this, how would they just let things slide,
they'd want to protect themselves.
Based on the article, this is going to be the bulk of Netanyahu's speech tonight. No hint of the outpost issue at all. This is interesting as well
because, at least here in Germany, this speech was billed as one that would give a definitive solution/proposal to that issue.
In the end, though, the Palestinians want a land to call their own. It appears that Israel is willing to concede that and give it to them. It will
be interesting to see how the Palestinians respond to this--giving a "counter offer" or if they'll just reject it, like they've done before
because they're not willing to compromise with the Israeli state.
