Bill Clinton: Netanyahu not the guy to make peace

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, Reports –Former US president Bill Clinton indicated that he believes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not make peace with the Palestinians unless he is forced to do so.

Clinton made the comments during the Harkin Steak Fry in Indianola, Iowa, on Sunday as he spoke to fans at the end of the event.

The former president was approached by a small group of pro-Palestinian activists who questioned him about the Middle East peace process.

During his speech, an activist interrupted him saying: “If we do not force him [Netanyahu] to have peace, we will not have peace.”

“First of all, I agree with that,” Clinton said. “But in 2000, [former prime minister] Ehud Barak, I got him to agree to something I am not sure I would have gotten Rabin to agree to, and Rabin was murdered for giving land to the Palestinians.”

Clinton made reference to the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who, together with the late PLO leader Yasser Arafat and Clinton himself, signed the Oslo Peace Accords on the White House lawn in 1993 en-route to putting areas of the West Bank under Palestinian Authority control.

“But Netanyahu is not the guy,” suggested the activist. Clinton replied: “I agree with that.”
