Defense Minister pessimistic about Israel-Palestinian conflict, says it has no solution so long as the PA incites against Israel.

Speaking at the World WIZO [see] conference in Tel Aviv, Ya’alon hailed Israel’s success in stopping mass terrorist attacks, a success which, he claimed, has caused the enemy to change its plans and carry out “lone wolf” attacks. ...
Ya’alon stressed the importance of Israeli public diplomacy within the international community in order to combat the Palestinian propaganda. ...
The propaganda war is very difficult because it is driven by widespread anti-Semitism and delegitimization of Israel, and so it is hard to fight it,” he added, noting that the international community does not understand how much it is led astray by the pro-Palestinian propaganda.
"Israel's public diplomacy war requires each of us to become a warrior on social networks, and to speak up for Israel. I call on you, the women of WIZO, to take part in this fight,” said Ya’alon.
