Israel seen as a ‘pariah state,’ says top strategy official – Stuart Winer – The Times of Israel 07.08.16
Strategic Affairs Ministry head says BDS pushed on defensive, hopeful that existence of the Jewish state won’t be questioned by 2025. ‘Whoever accepts our existence here, including the biggest critics, is a partner. Whoever doesn’t is an opponent. If there is an organisation that says we need to give back all of the [Palestinian] territories, but recognises Israel’s existence as a nation-state — to me, that is a partner.’
