Netanyahu Addresses AIPAC, Congress

Hadassah joins the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in lauding Prime Minister Netanyahu’s commitment to peace and a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. The Conference of Presidents' statement can be read here.

While addressing Congress today, Prime Minister Netanyahu called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to tear up the pact with Hamas and negotiate a peace deal with Israel.

“President Abbas must do what I have done. I stood before my people . . . and I said, ‘I will accept a Palestinian state.’ It is time for President Abbas to stand before his people and say, ‘I will accept a Jewish state’. Those six words will change history. They will make clear to the Palestinians that this conflict must come to an end—that they are not building a state to continue the conflict with Israel, but to end it."
