A participant at the left-wing Haaretz conference gave the Nazi 'Heil Hitler' salute to the chairman of the Jewish Home faction, Naftali Bennett..

"You told me you do not want two states. You told me you have no problem with apartheid, You're a Nazi and you're the worst politician we've ever known in the country," the woman was filmed telling Bennett.

The Israel Conference for Peace of the Haaretz newspaper took place today for the third consecutive year at the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv.

The discussions addressed the 50 years since the Six-Day War and the liberation of Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria.

Bennett drew boos at the conference when he said that Jerusalem must remain united and spoke of his opposition to the Two State solution.

"Jerusalem is above logic," Bennett said. "We would rather have a united Jerusalem than a diplomatic agreement."

"Some of this crowd may not agree with what I said," Bennett continued, "but 85% of the Israeli public does agree."

At the conference, President Reuven Rivlin also spoke with politicians on both sides of the political spectrum, including Education Minister Naftali Bennett, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, MKs Isaac Herzog, Moshe Gafni, Zahava Gal-On, Ofer Shelah, Ayman Odeh and Tzipi Livni.
