MK Ayelet Shaked (Yamina) on Monday morning spoke to Reshet Bet about the meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz (Blue and White) to discuss applying Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

"Yamina is in favor of applying sovereignty, but it needs to be done right," she said. "The fact that we're in the opposition isn't random, apparently."

"Netanyahu decided to break apart the right-wing bloc, and now he's begging Gantz to apply [Israeli] law over perhaps Maaleh Adumim."

According to Shaked, what Netanyahu needs right now is determination to go through with the process.

"[Former Prime Minister Menachem] Begin wanted to apply [Israeli] law to the Golan Heights - he did it within 24 hours. He was determined," she emphasized.

"In the coalition deal, it explicitly says that Blue and White does not have to agree [to sovereignty]. I heard several senior Likud officials claim that the claim that the Americans demand wide agreement is not true."

Regarding the threatening letter sent to Supreme Court justice Anat Baron, Shaked said, "This is a very serious thing, which needs to be investigated. Every judge must be treated with respect, even if we don't agree with their rulings. We need to find the person who did this despicable act.
