Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"No projects exist now for a peaceful solution, and it does not seem to me that there will be any in the future. We hear what the representative of the U.N. Secretary-General says, and we express our opinion on what we hear. So far our opinion has been clear...With regard to a political solution, we will not in any way agree to give away one inch of Arab territory in any Arab country...
Life will be meaningless and worthless to us however, until every inch of Arab soil is liberated. To us the liberation of Arab soil represents an indivisible whole. In no circumstances is there an alternative to the departure of the occupation forces from all occupied territory. Prior to this departure, there can be no peace in the Middle East in any circumstances."
