Who said this?

“The permanent solution will include a Palestinian entity which will be an entity, which is less than a state.

“Israel will not return to 4 June 1967 lines. These are the main changes, not all of them, which we envision in the permanent solution.

“First and foremost united Jerusalem, which will include both Maaleh Adumim and Givat Zeev, as the united capital of Israel under Israeli sovereignty. 

“The security border of the State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley, in the broadest meaning of that term.

“Changes which will include the addition of Gush Etzion, Efrat, Betar and other communities, most of which are in the area east of what was the Green Line prior to the Six Day War.

“The establishment of blocs of settlements in Judea and Samaria, like the one in Gush Katif.”

This was not a right-wing politician. This was Israeli Prime Minister and peace-maker, Yitzhak Rabin, in the Knesset on October 5, 1995, seeking ratification of the Oslo Accords.

This address was delivered after he had been awarded the Nobel Peace prize and hailed as a “Valiant warrior for peace.”
