Benjamin Netanyahu at Davos: Jerusalem to remain capital under any peace agreement

Netanyahu was interviewed by CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on the main Davos stage on Thursday, saying: “Under any peace agreement the capital of Israel will continue to be in Jerusalem.” Netanyahu reiterated that the seat of Israeli government is in Israel, and that Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3000 years. Donald Trump did “a great service for peace, because peace can only be based on truth. You can’t build peace on fantasy,” the PM said. When asked whether there wasn’t anything to be said for the Arabs’ historical connection to Jerusalem, Netanyahu stated that “Israel’s position is that Jerusalem should remain united under Israeli sovereignty with complete freedom for everyone to practice their faiths as they choose.”He further claimed that if that were to change, “you could see Israel descend into the sectorial violence that categorizes other places in the Middle East.””The Palestinians should have all the power to govern themselves but none of the power to threaten us,” Netanyahu said. “In any political arrangement the Jews must retain security control in the area, because otherwise you’ll have ISIS… We have a mosaic of failed states in the Middle East, and we don’t want another one.”
