Israeli-Palestinian Conflict - Arabs of Israel, Palestinians. Security - Self-Defense

No, we didn't agree to a Palestinian state. Mr. Chancellor, nobody now would agree. It would be a solid base in the heart of the Middle East armed with the most striking weapons. Every house or home in Tel Aviv and in Jaffa and in Jerusalem and in Rehovot would be in the range of their artillery or even their machine guns. We would then put our civilian population – men, women and child – into the range of the enemy's fire. That is absolutely unacceptable to us.
