http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7...791038,00.htmlNetanyahu believes that should Israel lose the battle over the Goldstone Report, it would not be able to risk concessions to the Palestinians. In other words: Itâ€™s either Goldstone or a peace process. The two cannot go hand in hand.
Netanyahuâ€™s view is presented as contradicting Kadimaâ€™s line. When Kadima led the government, it premised its willingness to make concessions on the notion that withdrawals grant Israel military freedom of maneuver. Should the Palestinians resume the fire, the world will see a harsh Israeli response; a â€œcrazyâ€ response even.
In Netanyahuâ€™s view, the Goldstone Report proves that Kadimaâ€™s doctrine collapsed. The current government will make sure to include, in any future agreement, security arrangements that would enable the IDF to respond to any aggression from the Palestinian side. These security arrangements will be entrenched through international guarantees.
