Naftali Bennett said that the idea of establishing a Palestinian state has reached a dead end and should be forsaken.
"Never in the history of Israel has so much energy been invested in something so pointless,” Bennett said at a conference on the Jewish residents in Judea and Samaria and their depiction in the media.
Now that's what I'm talking about. You go, boy.
Less we get too enthusiastic, thank Gd we have Bibi to bring us down to earth:
Economy Minister Naftali Bennett’s comments about the idea of a Palestinian state being dead are reflective only of his own opinion, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Monday.
"Foreign policy is shaped by the prime minister and my view is clear,” Netanyahu told the Reuters news agency. “I will seek a negotiated settlement where you'd have a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state."
Whew! And here I thought Sara had given Bibi the green light. Silly me.
