Jerusalem - Israeli Opposition Chief Fears Binational State
Jerusalem - Israel’s new opposition leader says the biggest danger facing the country is that it will be replaced by a binational Jewish-Arab state if it fails to separate from the Palestinians.
Former military chief Shaul Mofaz won leadership of the centrist Kadima Party last month. He told Israel Radio Tuesday, “The threat of us losing the Jewish majority and Israel becoming a binational state is the biggest threat to Israel, and time is working against us.”
He said, “The threat of a binational state that we are bequeathing to our children really keeps me awake at night.”
Mofaz said Israel must resume talks for a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza.
On Monday, a prominent Palestinian told The Associated Press a binational state could result if peace talks fail.
