Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu endorsed the idea of a Palestinian state for the first time Sunday — but with some strict restrictions. He also expressed support for Israeli settlements in the West Bank, a clear challenge to the Obama administration.

NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro in Jerusalem talks to guest host Guy Raz about Netanyahu's speech and international reaction.
