Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will concede additional Israeli lands to Arabs, former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin's bureau chief predicted on Wednesday.

Eitan Haber reminded, in a conversation with Arutz Sheva, that all the Likud's leaders talked like rightists but behaved like leftists.

"Begin gave up the Sinai Peninsula and Yamit, Shamir went to the Madrid Conference, Sharon carried out the disengagement and evicted residents of Gush Katif, and Netanyahu gave away Hevron in the Wye agreement," said Haber. "These are the facts and they speak for themselves. "

Haber said that from his experience, as soon as one becomes the head of a government, everything he ever thought, learned and memorized changes.

"Even if Feiglin was prime minister, he'd have a hard time withstanding the pressure of the world and the European Union," he said. "The world does not recognize what it calls the Israeli occupation."

Haber added that he believes that Netanyahu will establish a coalition of right-wing parties which will also include more moderate parties .

"If there will be an obstructive bloc which consists of right-wing parties, Netanyahu will turn to that bloc, but he will look, like he did last time, for people that will moderate and balance the government," he predicted.
