Brig Gen (res) Michael Herzog on Israel’s need to seize the initiative

“I believe there is an opportunity for our government to seize the initiative. Frankly, the conflict is our problem and it is for us to decide what we want. I would like to see us take the right decisions for ourselves, and move proactively in that direction. If we do so, while leaving the door open to a future agreement within the regional framework of a two-state solution, we are likely to find regional and international partners who will work with us, even if peace is not around the corner.”
