Israeli newspaper, Hayom, reports that Naftali Bennett, Israeli Minister of Economy and head of the Jewish Home Party, has suggested in an article he wrote for the Wall Street Journal to demolish a portion of the Israeli ‘separation wall’, in a move to annex Area C to the state of Israel, as well as giving its residents full Israeli citizenship.
According to the plan, Palestinian authorities would be left with Areas A and B to build their state.
Bennett wrote, according to the PNN, that many Israelis think the wall is the reason for the decrease in terrorist activities in Israel; however, he would argue that the true impetus behind the decrease is Israeli military intelligence, and because the army enjoys complete freedom of movement in the West Bank.
Therefore, he concludes, Israel will be safer and better off without the wall.
