Netanyahu and Obama

The Likud Central Committee is convening today to discuss the “day after” the construction freeze. Activists will distribute a list of selected anti-two-state quotes from Likud ministers as a reminder of the Likud’s positions – and as a shocker for Obama.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu himself is quoted as saying, “Judea and Samaria will not be Judenrein. I will not evacuate communities, and I will not establish a Palestinian state… The supreme test of every public figure is whether he keeps his promises to the public, and this test my colleagues and I have passed.”

Among the other quotes are the following:

  • Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon: “I do not believe in the solution of two states for two peoples.”

  • Minister Benny Begin: “No to a Palestinian state, no to a foreign entity in Judea and Samaria.”

  • Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz: “A Palestinian state will lead to the end of Israel.”

  • Education Minister Gideon Saar: “Any blow to the settlement enterprise in Judea and Samaria will be a blow to the security of Tel Aviv and Netanya. Preserving the Land of Israel is our guarantee for security. We will not agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

  • Coalition whip MK Ze’ev Elkin: “I will fully oppose the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria.”
