  • Fresh off his victory, Netanyahu softens comments on two-state solution

    WBUR - 03/20/2015

    On the day before the election — Netanyahu said there would be no Palestinian state if he were in power. But in multiple interviews with U.S. media yesterday, he’s already clarified those comments.

    “I don’t want a one-state solution,” he told NBC News in an interview. “I want a sustainable, peaceful two-state solution.”

    And to NPR’s Steve Inskeep, he said: “I don’t want a one-state solution, but I certainly don’t want a zero-state solution, a no-state solution, where Israel’s very existence would be jeopardized. And that’s what the people of Israel overwhelmingly elected me to do.”

    Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson talks to Dov Waxman, professor of political science, international affairs and Israel studies at Northeastern University about what Netanyahu’s new tack means for the region.
