Ehud Olmert on Peace

The Financial Times quotes a statement made by Israel’s outgoing prime minister Ehud Olmert last September.

Israel will never turn armed might into strategic security. If need be, it could win a war against all its enemies combined. But if it wants peace it must face the decision it has avoided for 40 years: withdrawal from the occupied Palestinian territories. Military victories and land grabs are futile. Security will come only with political resolution.
