Israeli Minister Bennett: Idea of Palestinian State Has Reached Dead End

JNS.orgIsrael should discard the two-state solution when it comes to the conflict with the Palestinians and instead seek to “live with the problem,” Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett (Habayit Hayehudi) said on Monday in a conference sponsored by the Yesha Council in Jerusalem.

Bennett said Israel should annex—”as quickly as possible”—virtually all the areas that were not handed over the Palestinian Authority under the Oslo accords, including the Jewish communities and a handful of Palestinian towns. He said Israel should devise “aggressive” new plans to drastically improve the economic wellbeing of both the Jewish and Arab inhabitants of Judea and Samaria.

“The notion of having a two-state solution established in the Land of Israel is now at a dead end; never in Jewish history have so many people talked so much and expended so much energy in something so futile,” Bennett said, according to Israel Hayom.
