Israelâ€™s Economy Minister, Naftali Bennett, stated that Israel should never allow the establishment of a Palestinian State, and should never â€śgive the Palestinians any piece of landâ€ť.Bennett, who is also the head of the Jewish Home Party, told Israeli TV that â€śPresident Mahmoud Abbas does not want peaceâ€ť, and alleged that â€śthe Palestinians always try to kill the Israelisâ€ť. He claimed he â€śrespectsâ€ť peace agreements previously signed with the Palestinians, but will not support or accept future peace agreements.
â€śWhenever we give the Palestinians any piece of land, they would want to kill more of usâ€ť, he said, â€śYou must understand that the solution is a complete separation, and dividing the West Bank into three areasâ€ť.
The official further stated that he â€świll not allow the government to grant the Palestinians any landâ€ť, and that â€śfor the coming thirty years, Israel will only be facing Palestinian terrorismâ€ť.
The news anchor who was interviewing Bennett eventually argued with him for his extreme views, and told him that he should leave the government if he does not approve of its policiesâ€ť. She also told him that he appears to be in the government just to obstruct any possibility of peace with the Palestinians.
Israelâ€™s occupation of Palestine and its settlements, in the occupied territories, are illegal under International Law, while the army and Israeli settlers continue their violations and assaults against the Palestinians, their land and holy sites.
