Deputy Defense Minister: Anyone Signing Interim Deal Is Out of Likud

Danon told Israel Radio that he trusts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Officially.
Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon has decided to start early the campaign to prevent givebacks to the Palestinians. While saying he "trusts" Netanyahu – he appears to harbor very different feelings than trust about the PM.

Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon has announced that the Likud movement will not support a deal with the Palestinians which turns over our national assets in exchange for nothing. He threatened that whomever attempts to promote such a deal, thus showing that he opposes the Likud’s ideals, would not remain in Likud.

Speaking on Kol Israel radio Tuesday morning, Danon said that the spirit of the “Oslo gang” which is being channeled nowadays by Minister Tzipi Livni, will never be brought back to life by the Likud movement.

Danon said that he trusts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and is yet to hear from him that he supports an interim deal with the Palestinians.

“I believe that Netanyahu is aware of the pitfalls and has seen the failures of Oslo and the ‘disengagement’ (in Gush Katif, Gaza),” said Danon. “Anyone expecting us to act as contractors for the Israeli left is wrong.”

Danon shared that he is anxious because the national camp, comprising the majority of the Likud Beiteinu Knesset delegation, as well as the entire Jewish Home party, are not represented in the U.S. driven negotiations with the Palestinians.

Israel’s Channel 2 News on Monday night broadcast a similar report, that Deputy Minister Danon has attacked the prime minister forcefully in a closed meeting of the Likud delegation over the possibility of yet another interim deal (which would inevitably involve additional prisoner releases, more land turnovers, and some Palestinian access to East Jerusalem—in exchange for a signed piece of paper from the other side). Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein was also present at that meeting.

Danon, who is also the chairman of the Likud Conference, warned: “Should such an agreement come, the Likud movement must announce in advance that anyone who promotes such an agreement does not belong in the Likud.”

  1. I completely agree with Danon. However, Danon's trust in Netanyahu is misplaced. All you have to do is look at Netanyahu's capitulation in recent negotiations. I don't believe Netanyahu's beliefs are aligned with the Likud party anymore and as such Netanyahu should switch to a party that believe in dangerous and fruitless concessions. My only hope is that Danon will run for Prime Minister soon and the Israeli people will be smart enough to vote for him.

    Yori, it's "interim". Having a misspelling like that in a headline is an embarrassment.

  4. Finally there is one with "kopf", in this goverment, Isaid many times Netanyahu must out, he is not worth any more, he only wants the post of PM for any price, for what are the parlament?, they can not through out Netanyahu for betrayal to the Israeli people, to release ferous, cruelty terrorists murders.

    Netanyahu is after a Nobel prize at the expense of his principles.  His biggest offense so far, in addition to the 2 prisoner releases, is his failure to publicly embrace the reasoning of the Levy Committee report, supporting Israel’s legal right to all of the West Bank, except for what Israel voluntarily relinquished (Area A and somewhat lesser rights in parts of Area B), and what it may choose to relinquish in the future (very little, I would hope, and none of it strategic).
