Olmert says Israel needs peace deal 'within 4 years'

Nov. 8, 2012 5:08 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 8, 2012 5:08 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of Israel said Thursday that Israel must reach an agreement with the Palestinians within four years, Israeli media reported.

Israel's Ynet news site said Olmert, speaking at Columbia University in New York, believes the conflict is the most important issue on the agenda ahead of Israeli elections next year.

Olmert said newly elected US President Barack Obama would support Israel but does not care for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on a personal level.

Israel still "has a friend in the White House," he said.
