We'll -- back -- Gregg Jarrett this is foxnews.com.
A very important speech and I'm gonna play a clip in just a second Benjamin Netanyahu.
The prime minister of Israel in his visit to the United States been quite a visit.
He met with the president in the Oval Office last Friday and then there where the cameras that came -- -- him.
If you would appear to have been a -- full scolding.
Of the US president by the prime minister of Israel and then.
But delivers the speech before congress here's a clip from it.
No need to do nation building in his room.
Were ordered built.
You don't need to export democracy to Israel we -- -- -- us.
You don't need to send American troops to Israel who we.
Well listen brought one of the finest because I've ever seen it was really electric can in fact he was in erupted 55 times with applause.
Standing ovations for the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Joining us here on the set is -- -- -- -- -- you see you thank you very much for being with -- -- -- the consul general of Israel here in New York.
And it's a pleasure to have you with -- -- You think you thank you thank you so much it's a pleasure to be here well as as you said I think there was an amazing speech.
A real display of how wide and deep used to support for his -- in America the way they promise to was received.
By members of the congress by the senators it was heartwarming for me -- it has -- that can tell you that.
How would you.
How would you analyze US Israeli relations right now.
There's you know the scope of the cooperation between the two nations that death.
And the magnitude of the friendship is unprecedented there's no question about it now every once in awhile just like.
-- you know friends you can have certain disagreements and that's perfectly legitimate.
But really the foundation.
Is more solid than that.
It was reported by the New York Times correspondent for the White House that.
Reason why President Obama.
Delivered his speech last Thursday.
Which was in such -- variance.
To the prime minister's position about Israel.
Is that the president wanted to upstage in overshadow the upcoming speech by Benjamin Netanyahu.
The op -- today seem to be saying just the opposite happened.
Prime minister really upstage you know kind of the US president because of -- -- such a repudiation.
-- president Obama's position laid out in his speech.
Well I think that when you look at the and I read the speech delivered by President Obama.
Prior to mr.
Netanyahu's arrival to do that it's very carefully.
And at the end of the day.
Even if you when you look at that and l.'s response to the speech -- the end of the day -- both.
Using the same terminology were both using the same language and we mean well look the same thing.
Both Israel and the United States support the two state solution bottom line both Israel and United States would like to see the Palestinians return.
To the table -- negotiations.
As soon as possible bottom line is that both is from the United States.
Think that the Palestinians.
Are the reluctant party at this point that is not willing to return to negotiations.
Precedent -- the United States whose work you've -- Friday and I think that's -- fear term by.
The prime minister in this Oval Office meeting.
And he had to do with reporters the president -- a day earlier had said we have to begin with the pre 1967.
And Netanyahu the next -- said that that's not gonna happen.
And then last night he said this before congress Nicholas.
In any real peace agreement.
In any peace agreement that ends the conflict.
Some settlements will -- -- beyond Israel's borders.
Now the precise delineation of those borders.
Must be negotiated.
Will be generous.
About the size of the future Palestinian state.
But as president Obama's senate.
The border will be different than the one -- existed on June 4 1967.
Israel will not return.
But -- defensible boundaries.
-- -- Well is that just a new ones there.
Or was the prime minister throwing a bone in the US president saying as President -- sad.
It's not exactly what the president Obama's that.
What's going on.
And yet we have to make a distinction between two things here.
You have the 1967.
Borders which are actually the 1949.
Those lines are the lines where the military -- has happened to be when the war ended.
They do not reflect any geographical or powerful graphical logic and certainly not -- -- security needs of the time if someone had to design.
The border in 1949 taking into consideration Israel's security needs being the smallest nation in the region.
This would not have been the border -- it would have been foolish because it's in defense of its indefensible and the reason why it's indefensible is because.
The Samaria the hills of Samaria hires the higher terrain control Israel's coastal plain which is really the lifeline of our nation.
70% of Israel's population live in the coastal plain in its narrowest point.
It leaves us only nine miles between the Mediterranean and the West Bank -- indefensible.
And I'd even say a word about.
The potential controlled -- our adversaries can have over our only national airport which is right there.
So when you talk about 67 literally the 1949 armistice lines -- defensible.
But there's a different way to look at 67 is a constant.
And the president did say.
In his speech last Thursday.
Her agreement between besides emphasizing the need to go back to negotiations.
And this is -- -- he.
The fact that the Palestinians are not willing to return to negotiations.
And we should also remind our viewers.
Of the most recent.
Problem that we had with the Palestinians over the notion of freezing the settlements if remember that we agreed to a ten month until freezes them.
They did nothing -- those ten months they spent nine and a half months doing absolutely nothing and then the last two weeks since that oh it is -- not extend.
The -- we will not return to negotiations but that the point is that the Palestinians.
And repeatedly -- reluctant.
To resume negotiations -- willing to do that tomorrow.
