Netanyahu calls on Abbas to address Israeli parliament

Nov. 18, 2013 9:04 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2013 12:14 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday invited President Mahmoud Abbas to address the Israeli parliament and publicly recognize Jewish links to the land of Israel.

"I call on him from here today: let's break the deadlock," Netanyahu said in a special address to the parliament, or Knesset, in honor of a visit by French President Francois Hollande.

"Come to the Israeli Knesset and I'll come to Ramallah," he said, referring to Abbas' West Bank headquarters.

"Get up on this platform and recognize the historical truth: the Jews have a nearly 4,000-year-old link to the land of Israel. The Jews are a people with a right to self-determination," he said.

"In real peace, all Palestinian claims regarding the State of Israel will end, including national claims on its territory and sovereignty."
