30 Likud Members Meet with Senior Palestinian at GI Seminar

On the 14-15th February we organized a seminar for 30 key Likud Activists including members of the Likud Central Committee, branch heads and local council members. They met with former Palestinian Minister Hisham Abdel-Raziq, a resident of Gaza who spent over 20 years in an Israeli jail. Abdel-Raziq told the audience: "I would personally be prepared to live in one state, but the two state solution is better. The Geneva Initiative shows that it is possible to reach an agreement."


Former Likud MK Yehiel Hazan, who is today the Head of the Likud Branch in the settlement of Ariel, said after the seminar that his views had changed in recent years and that today he supports the two state solution.
