Haaretz live-blogged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech on the Middle East.

The main message?

The speech was like a nod to the old pre-intifada way of looking at the Palestinians, but at the same time mentioning two states.

It seemed to be no to dividing Jerusalem, no to the return of refugees or an independent state and no to a real settlement freeze. But you’ll be well-off and taken care of.

I think Netanyahu has make it pretty clear that he will toe the line of his coalition and won’t make any big concessions.

In other words, indefinite apartheid.
