Uppför er som vuxna och börja bygga en framtid

Yair Lapid lade fram några tänkvärda tankar på  The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference i Jerusalem i dag.

Lapid urges Palestinians to 'grow up,' build a future (Jerusalem Post)
"Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela knew something about freedom that those protestors do not understand. They knew that freedom is not just a gift you are given. Freedom is a responsibility...a moral duty," he said. As someone who is committed to a two-state solution, Lapid said, he needs to know what kind of state the Palestinians want to build.

"What is their version of freedom?" he asked. "What price are they willing to pay for it? What responsibilities are they willing to take upon themselves?" 

Lapid pointed out that the PA has existed for over 20 years and Israelis do not have a presence in Palestinian cities except when there are security needs. The Palestinians, he said, have built a corrupt governing system without an effective judiciary or modern industry...

...In addition, the "Palestinian education system poisons the minds of six and seven-years-olds, every single day, with antisemitic propaganda of the worst kind.

"That's not freedom. When they tell their children that Jews are monkeys and pigs, they are not marching towards the liberation of Palestine, they are putting new chains on their own ankles," he added.

Lapid also detailed the way Palestinian terrorists and their families receive a salary from the PA, which uses the donations they receive from other countries.

"Instead of building something, instead of creating something, they choose a culture of murder and destruction," he stated. "
