prime minister and I see you sir welcome to beer thank you grow and welcome to exit and it's been a lot time here and yet it's growing up -- -- accent thank you.
Today called the UN general assembly is the term theater the surge came out pretty hard hitting -- the general assembly line.
And it could decide these -- things could pretty much aside your life.
It could decide the western wall which is Judaism's most holiest site -- occupied Palestinian territory.
It could it singles out Israel.
Four attack in -- 21 -- of 27 resolutions.
Adopted by the UN.
On human rights are directed against Israel the Middle -- only true democracy all the other countries there -- you can imagine so.
Not been little mention of it so you know it's it's an upside down place.
-- -- But -- in a place like that the only good news this.
Tell the truth is wanna try to do.
I'm curious whether there's some sort of temptation not to even comic -- if the Israel's portrayed by many in there as the villain.
And it referred to as the theater of the absurd and and we -- sort of watch elect President Abbas -- that we watch you speak and it's it's it it is it is a theater of note.
And -- With an undetermined.
Go but -- -- strange place viewing because they make.
You know so -- the rock responsible for disarmament.
You know co chair of the human conductors would be chaired the you and -- rights commission.
And now you have Lebanon which is effectively control -- Hezbollah terrorist organization preside over the Security Council which is responsible for.
-- global security.
You know that that's very -- and one of the one of the victims of this.
Absurdity of this travesty is Israel that gets.
Hammered -- and some the country opposed to pieces of country.
An aggressive country one's a tiny country one and only to a state of the Jewish people.
That is fighting for its life against terrorists supported by wrong.
And and is accused.
When it's trying to defend itself as any democracy so.
You know I think the only defense against lines of code truth.
Even -- popular form and that's what felt the responsibility.
Of an Israeli prime minister.
Is the prime minister I went there and told it like it is.
I was reminded I'd forgotten of course have been issue -- a hot the issue when He compared to Manhattan.
Talked about -- to fly across Israel and -- three minutes across that state six hours it really isn't.
Big difference it and -- put systems issues security.
Up front center for people are listening.
It's it's a tiny country that is Trace -- Enemies and challenges to security like no -- When we've had in this tiny country it's a little bigger -- Rhode -- We've had 121000 rockets lobbed -- other cities.
In recent years the American Rhode -- Sustaining 121000 -- -- missiles.
And Providence and in the -- next.
And so Israel -- to defendants.
And part of peace must.
And proper security safeguards -- Israel can defend itself.
In order to also defend the peace.
I think these -- the things that we need to negotiate with the -- and so whether refused to negotiate.
Basically relying only.
And the received wisdom.
Concern international quarters well they don't have to negotiate because as -- always -- blame.
Has not wanting -- we want peace were prepared to have peace with the Palestinians and the Palestinians want.
01 basically a Palestinian state without peace.
And so I think.
Fair minded people just don't sit down and negotiate.
Work -- these issues.
Of security and the recognition of Israel is Jewish state.
Negotiate please that's the only way that we can you can resolve it by UN declaration.
Did you watch president -- speech or listened to another room.
I read it I was busy running my own -- of the times are still ours.
I write my speeches.
To the podium.
And actually -- them.
-- look at actually look at -- loans received and those in office would do a better system -- way.
And so what if they -- present -- words I felt that I was.
Disappointed because I hope that He would.
Aside from I think about telling it like it is because it's.
He -- in fact -- something very Kelly's.
The other day.
Israel has been occupied -- For 63 years.
They're talking about the ways that that's that goes back.
-- to going to succeed so.
63 use goes back to the -- -- him as well.
Is what He is what President -- telling us that.
Tel Aviv is occupied Palestinian territory.
The -- was occupied Palestinian territory in other words that all of Israel.
Is basically a land that -- -- -- -- In quotes.
Israel shouldn't exist in any boundaries I think there's something telling because that really -- the -- -- the called.
It's the persistent refusal Palestinians.
To accept a Jewish state in any border that's the world.
And I hope I know hopefully.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- To -- the Palestinian people -- that kind of thinking has to.
They have to recognize the Jewish state and they have to.
-- on the negotiating with -- workable please defensible case.
Was that slip or do you think that's sort of the Hamas thinking you know -- doesn't recognize them for the right.
Israel to exist is that -- that serve I slipped and He made -- -- speaker do you think that underline all this is that He doesn't think that is He has a right to exist.
I think you should be should be interviewed him and asked him.
Because I think -- -- as usual.
And that would just come.
You know it was very hard for music group leader.
Speak to my own people might want constituencies look.
As difficult as it is deeply test and every inch of the land of Israel restore home -- -- -- have to make some compromises and going to be very -- But I'm prepared to do I'm willing to sort of proposals Tuesday.
That lives in peace with Israel -- -- -- proper security and I'm not prepared to have another view on there you know which to establish.
Another Gaza there -- -- far rockets that are territories.
And not make peace with us what I hear the Palestinians so force we want -- state not a political.
We want this state to continue -- and that's wrong so I think part of it is telling us that enables those people.
It's gonna be over.
You know we're gonna get a statement about try to go -- to -- The other parts of drizzle we're gonna move appease Israel is here Tuesday.
That's what you should recognize the -- state that's so some.
But again I don't -- preconditions -- beginning negotiations.
Don't start the Broadway right now.
We offer that the and that is listing to speech and we talk about being -- theater and then look -- that the reaction.
I saw that yeah of course the the Palestinians were cheering on their president Israelis are cheering on their prime minister.
And it seems likely we -- -- if -- created -- theater we can't really get you guys to sort of Saddam -- things obviously night night yourself your base has dug its heels and she.
Here are my episodes -- native lives in a news.
Let's doctors hospitals and notably -- -- to talk that's the whole point -- was most symmetry.
But you've still got to actually still have of the supported your people in the that if -- what is it that I thinks -- -- is such a raw deal from the Palestinians because they've come in here another asking for statehood.
We didn't do that is something that I would they could be somewhat of a hurdle for -- -- deal it.
Well if they want stated without trees.
It's gonna happen I'm not gonna do -- because people hopefuls -- because because I -- -- if they want peace and devastated as far.
And that's what we should be working but I think I think there's a basic.
Because Israelis won't appease desperately yearn for please pray for -- reasons there are millions.
I'm the country that is being protected him and -- Your friends -- relatives it's people want peace peace is very precious but you've been wars you know about there.
Can't seem to.
Develop this kind of consensus in Israel I developed ones -- can bring Victoria's roads to the table.
And I think the Palestinian user to use of humans.
Immortal words that rooms an opportunity to lose an -- They really have to.
Take that courageous step.
And confront -- people -- we're not gonna get everything -- not gonna flood Israel with Austin's.
We're gonna have to accept Israel as a Jewish state and we'll have to make some compromises not only Israel will compromise both with us.
I'm prepared to do.
And to produce it done right now in this mutual right -- said that it on this interview if you want a lot of well armed.
For Forsberg for disagree with President Clinton.
Offered to make peace with the Palestinians have -- employment.
He said actually that it -- -- Apple's gonna want.
-- And move them closer to please.
I said things I did things that no previous prime -- -- done.
I -- the settlements for 210 months the construction nobody did before and help.
And it doesn't help the perception either because no matter what we do what we say in other players cast cast of cartridges.
So doesn't change people's minds and I think that's portable.
I think the Palestinians avoid going to the negotiations.
And they can try do -- grown disposals by going into the UN.
Because they're getting a free ride.
They're getting a free ride because people actually believe that they wanted to go through -- when they're doing everything in their power to order.
So I disagree as far as American politics.
Let's have an old model but I don't wanna get him.
I'm not -- governance initiative as a security like you know.
You mean you want you -- -- my best friends.
And I'm curious to what extent that it -- -- actually can help this process and I imagine there's there's some external noise.
I'm going out whether it's for -- against you -- I imagine makes a little more difficult even those weren't -- this country to attempt to help you.
I think -- you have done this to us from the very powerful alliance between us.
Which by the way transcends prime ministers and presidents -- very strong it's really.
A sense of -- of the American people drizzle and Jacques who delivers strong sense for you the people of Israel to America -- was the one country in the world just.
Can't be anti American everybody's -- America.
That's a bipartisan or multi partisan sentiment in Israel which has the prime minister prison.
This industry here whoever is the American president there is this very very strong friendship that the president's.
At the end of the -- that cooperation.
That I think you've -- To the American position please.
Israel Israel -- stable -- -- -- one western democracy it's the one thing that's -- in the book about the use.
So one thing that doesn't shape.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- So I think the American people understand instinctively.
And -- people of Israel understands instinctively the United States there's.
Mentioned settlements and you put -- -- -- -- -- -- and then He lifted the trees and I and I think that President Obama wasn't happy that you lifted the -- Why you know why did you lift the freeze GS at a -- of the President Obama on that is the -- still in play -- -- any value on trying to move.
You know posters put up -- preconditions which it they've ever put him for eighteen years and negotiate without -- some trees and often that I came immediately to.
And you only -- and for years.
And nine months and one week moving into the mysteries there's still didn't come finally they came -- -- what we want another freeze.
-- -- One we just talk about all the -- elements in one.
Let's talk about please let's talk about double talk about security.
Let's talk about early warning let's talk about all the things we have to do professional workable stable and secure peace between.
I think as a prefix it's just a way to avoid negotiations.
Anywhere agreed to extend these trees for as -- -- people.
Agreed to move the three months extension.
And -- and I think wise.
And that's worth just.
People focus together again these disputes instead of getting on to all the core issues that are part of this part that's what needs to be an issue.
Can we do look at that states do to help -- what we know to a this peace force anything that you think that we're not clear that we don't do what tell me well.
I think is doing the most important to go the -- and Palestinians.
Who quit negotiating about the negotiations.
It's like the Nike -- from.
But then you've got the problem with the the Arabs praying and you've got president -- hit with the fact that well He is back in the the rebels and in Libya and Tunisia.
And certainly doesn't -- -- help the Palestinians He said a year ago that be a Palestinian state and -- that's the problem has got to I think is our.
Helping them along and getting the Palestinians -- -- do that there could be this world.
Child of international relations and they can have they -- just to avoid negotiations on and off and on and and not be taken into account for I don't think that hopes.
The peace process I think.
I think telling them respectfully confirmed.
Just get to the negotiation table is the right things.
And so -- -- because it's true.
And sometimes the simplest policies -- So what policy between those --
