MK Shelly Yacimovichat J Street conference: Netanyahu, for the sake of Israel’s future, move ahead in the peace process
Leader of the Opposition and Chairwoman of the Labor Party MK Shelly Yachimovich at the annual J Street conference in Washington on Sunday:
If the Iranians are trying to fool us, it is clear that all options are on the table. This is not just a cliché. We must be neither naïve nor paranoid. We know how to defend ourselves and are entitled to the right of self defense.
To Prime Minister Netanyahu, I say move ahead. I know that we don’t have an easy partner. There will be challenges. It won’t be easy. But for the sake of Israel’s future, move ahead. We will support you. The people of Israel will support you. And the world will support Israel.
