Bennett: PM, Do You Support a Palestinian State or Not?


During a tour of Beer Sheba, to assess the recovery of the city one month after operation Pillar of Defense, Chairman of the Jewish Home party, Naftali Bennett, responded to MK Gideon Sa'ar's comment that if the conflict continues there cannot be a Palestinian state. 

"I urge the Prime Minister to make thoroughly clear to the Israeli people and to the international community, does he withdraw his support of a Palestinian state as he declared, as his Defense Minister and his Foreign Minister have declared, or was the statement made by MK Saar only for the elections," said Bennett. 

"Prime minister - Do you support a Palestinian state or not?" he asked.
