Coalition chairman MK Miki Zohar wrote a post on his Facebook page Tuesday entitled: 'We will never recognize a Palestinian state.'

"During the Likud faction meeting yesterday, my colleagues and I discussed in-depth President Trump's Deal of the Century, and I want to share some important insights with you," Zohar began.

"The Prime Minister has unequivocally announced that neither the Knesset nor the government would ever agree to the principle of the establishment of a Palestinian state under any conditions," he said.

"The Deal of the Century will not be accepted or brought before the Knesset. It can serve as the basis for negotiations, but it does not require us to accept a Palestinian state," Zohar explained.

"I believe there is a majority in the Knesset for the application of sovereignty under the plan's framework: applying sovereignty over all localities in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley, as well as all outposts so not a single Jew will be evacuated from his home. The sequence of the application of the State of Israel's sovereignty in Judea and Samaria will be done in such a manner as to minimize the suffering and to maintain the optimal conditions of the settlers living there. This is a historic plan and a one-time opportunity to apply sovereignty over the entire territory of the Land of Israel," Zohar concluded.
