JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared on Sunday that Israel will not hand over territory to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Speaking to a meeting of Likud party ministers, the prime minister denied recent reports suggesting that the government planned to transfer 10,000 dunams (2,500 acres) of land over to PA control as a confidence-building measure.

“There will not be any transfer of land,” Netanyahu said. “Not 40,000 dunams, not 10,000, and not even one [square] meter.”

Israeli Science, Technology and Space Minister Ofir Akunis also denied the recent reports.

“After the delusional idea of transferring weapons to the Palestinians,” Akunis said, referring to remarks to the media by an anonymous IDF officer who said the IDF would recommend easing restrictions on the Palestinians to calm tensions, “we are hearing about the initiative by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories to hand over 10,000 dunams. We cannot let this happen.”

  • And Netanyahu has changed himself so many times that not a soul believes in him or knows what he really wants. How many times did he promise to settle E1? And he refuses to follow the LAW, Levy Report and just talk unendingly Obama-style.

    bottom line bibi, we need to go back to war. the muslims are busy killing each other across each of our borders, the PA incites the muslims to send their children to kill us now or run us over with their cars. Do you even care about spilled jewish blood? I found it despicable that you sent sara to the wedding last week that took place because of your weak leadership. I’m 50yo & would gladly go back into uniform & destroy our enemies. Time to cut off all water, power, supplies to gaza, annex judea & samaria, get rid of the corrupt PA, take back the temple mount & build beit hamikdash. Sadly, everyone knows you’re just a spineless politically incorrect stooge. GO HOME TO YOUR VILLA!

    Israel is blessed to have Benjamin Netanyahu as their strong, smart God fearing leader.
    May he continue to listen to Gods commands for His people. We pray that he stays in Gods will unlike Ariel Sharon who paid a price for ultimately disobeying God.
