(Worthy News) - Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Tuesday said that any future war will need to continue until there is a decisive result, even if Israel needs to take over "a quarter" or more of the Gaza Strip. The military will not stop until the other side "waves a white flag," said Lieberman.
Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies, the defense minister further cast doubt on current prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace, saying a negotiated settlement could only come as part of a larger agreement with Sunni Muslim nations.
"Everything was offered to Abu Mazen at Annapolis, including the partition of Jerusalem, included opening up the issues of refugees and the evacuation of Judea and Samaria to debate – everything," he said, using the biblical terms for areas of the West Bank. "And what did we get in the end? No." [ Source ]
