Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Aug2009, Vol. 28 Issue 6, p26
The article focuses on the propositions of Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu for the pacific settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict based on his speech delivered on June 14, 2009. His propositions are said to reflect a rejection of a two-state solution proposed by U.S. President Barack Obama in his speech in Cairo, Egypt on June 4. One condition cited by Netanyahu to resolve the conflict is to require the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. It is noted that he dismissed the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homeland.
