[Israel should never allow the establishment of a Palestinian State said Economy Minister, Naftali Bennett]


By Elham Asaad Buaras


Israel’s Economy Minister, Naftali Bennett, said that Israel should never allow the establishment of a Palestinian State, and should never “give the Palestinians any piece of land.”


Bennett, who is also the head of the right-wing Jewish Home Party as well as the extra-parliamentary movement My Israel, told Israeli TV that “President Mahmoud Abbas does not want peace”, and alleged that “the Palestinians always try to kill the Israelis.”


He claimed he “respects” peace agreements previously signed with the Palestinians, but will not support or accept future peace agreements.


“Whenever we give the Palestinians any piece of land, they would want to kill more of us,” he said, adding, “You must understand that the solution is a complete separation and dividing the West Bank into three areas.”


The official further stated that he “will not allow the Government to grant the Palestinians any land”, and that “for the coming thirty years, Israel will only be facing Palestinian terrorism.”


It is not the first time he expressed the controversial views. In an interview with the New Yorker in February last year, Bennett vowed to “do everything in my power to make sure they never get a state.”


Israel’s occupation of Palestine and its settlements, in the occupied territories, are illegal under International Law. Meanwhile the army and Israeli settlers continue their violations and assaults against the Palestinians, their land and holy sites.
