israeli minister Bennett wants Palestine wiped off the map
Bennett calls for imposing full Israeli sovereignty over Area C, which constitutes 61 per cent of the area of the occupied West Bank Bennett suggested that the Palestinians living in Area C, which includes most of the illegal Jewish Israeli settlements, are given the choice to have Israeli citizenship.
Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Israeli TV Channel two on Sunday that Palestinians “have no piece of land.” Bennett, who is the head of the Israeli Jewish Home party, also warned that his party would leave the government if it recognised a Palestinian state. He said he does not oppose holding talks with Palestinians, but insisted that recognising a Palestinian state was not one of the terms agreed upon when his party joined the government –
“There will never be a Palestinian state and any talks about the return to pre-1967 borders and dividing Jerusalem will dissolve the government,” he said, “we must not give the Palestinians any piece of land.” The extremist settler believes in a “Palestinian autonomy,” which would be achieved by the Israeli occupation imposing full sovereignty over Area C, which constitutes 61 per cent of the occupied West Bank. According to his “Stability Plan” plan, Palestinians can rule over Area A without any Israeli interference, but without real independence.
He suggested that those living in Area C, which includes most of the illegal Jewish Israeli settlements, are given the choice to have Israeli citizenship. If the Jewish Home were to quit the government it would leave it short of the seats it needs to hold majority.
