OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Head of Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee, Shaul Mofaz, said on Thursday that he expected a military showdown with the Palestinians if the political process remains stagnant.
Israeli radio quoted Mofaz, who is also a former War Minister, as saying that if the political process with the Palestinians is not resumed, then the next confrontation [with the Palestinians] is a matter of time.
Mofaz, who was talking to Israeli secondary school students in Ramat Gan, also said that he did not think that Netanyahu had prepared a political plan.
These comments come at a time when many Israeli media outlets and Likud party officials are saying the Netanyahu has lately been preparing a new political plan to revive the negotiations with the Palestinians.
