Naftali Bennett, head of Israel’s Jewish Home Party, told Channel 2 that his party would leave the government if it recognized a Palestinian state, Quds Press reported yesterday.

Bennett said he believes in “Palestinian autonomy” which would be achieved by Israel imposing full sovereignty over 61 per cent of the occupied West Bank, Area C. He suggested that those living in Area C, where most of the illegal settlements are located, are given the choice to have Israeli citizenship.

His “Stability Plan” plan states that Palestinian can rule over Area A without any Israeli interference, but without real independence.

Bennett was clear on his stance: “There will never be a Palestinian state and any talks about the return to pre-1967 borders and dividing Jerusalem will dissolve the government”. He added, “We must not give the Palestinians any piece of land.”
