JNS.org Four years after a historic speech at Bar-Ilan University during which he first backed a two-state solution, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned to the venue Sunday and said peace will only be possible when the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

The “root” of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is “the profound objection by the hard core of Palestinians to the right of the Jewish people to its own country in the Land of Israel,” Netanyahu said at the 20th anniversary international conference of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies.
