The youngest speaker ever in the history of the Israeli Knesset and a staunch supporter of peace in the Middle East, Avraham Burg has been referred to as "one of the best speechmakers in politics." Ha'Aretz Magazine writes, "he has a unique, multilayered manner of speaking that evokes lofty musings on the 'eternal Israel' while simultaneously evincing a hard-nosed, here-and-now pragmatism." While defending Israel's right to protect its citizens, Burg is a straightforward realist: "Whoever wants a full democracy with a Jewish majority cannot hold onto the entire land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, because it is a land that has people of another nation with different national aspirations."
