NetanyahuThe Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, said at his weekly cabinet meeting that the recent unrest in Tunisia points to the general problem of turmoil, unrest and instability throughout the Middle East. This fact of the general state of instability underlines the problem for Israel of signing peace treaties and expectations for the future. This is why, Netanyahu emphasized the great need for security guarantees to go along with any treaties signed with neighboring countries.

“We don’t know if a peace agreement would be respected and so any peace deal would have to include on-the-ground security arrangements,” the premier said.
