article imageNetanyahu warned of economic threats of stalled peace process

By Paul Iddon     Jun 18, 2013 in Business
Some prominent Israeli businessmen have warned their Prime Minister that the stalled peace processes may serve to endanger the Israeli economy.
According to Forward and France 24 these businessmen informed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the signs they are getting from the international business community are worrisome ones.
One explained to Mr. Netanyahu how they are "feeling the pressure." He went on to outline to Netanyahu that, "If we don't make progress toward a two-state solution, there will be negative developments for the Israeli economy. We're already noticing initial signs of this. The future of the Israeli economy will be in danger."
Another businessman also expressed worry that in the absence of a two-state solution Israel and the Palestinian territories may end up becoming a bi-national state, which would be neither a Jewish state or a democratic one. He explained how, "The world will not accept this. Foreign investments will not come to such a state. No one will buy goods from such a state."
The men were reportedly not preaching to the Prime Minister, they were merely expressing their fears and trepidation's about the trajectory they see their country being set on.
