Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivers a statement to the media at the Knesset, Israeli parliament, in Jerusalem, Monday, July 22, 2013. Israel's premier announced Monday he is fast-tracking legislation that would allow him to put any future peace deal with the Palestinians to a national referendum. Netanyahu said a referendum is needed to prevent a rift in Israeli society. Polls have suggested a majority of Israelis support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, but many groups are vehemently opposed, including hard-liners among Israel's West Bank settlers.
