Likud MKs Rebel, Tell Netanyahu not To Give Land to PA

JewishPress Logo

A group of 16 Knesset Members in Israel’s governing coalition, many from the Likud that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu heads, wrote him on Sunday not to give up territory to the Palestinian Authority.

In a letter sent to the Prime Minister during his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the MKs called on Netanyahu “not to return to the Oslo Accord template or cede any more parts of the homeland to the Palestinian Authority.”

The letter was drafted by MK Yariv Levin (Likud-Beiteinu), chairman of the governing coalition, and MK Orit Struck (Jewish Home). It was also signed by deputy ministers Ze’ev Elkin, Tzipi Hotovely and Ofir Akunis of the Likud and  Eli Ben-Dahan and Avraham Wortzman of Jewish Home.

Meanwhile, Energy and Water Resources Minister Silvan Shalom, a veteran and senior Likud leader, said that “no one believes a permanent agreement can be reached in nine months,” the timetable the U.S. has set for the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations.
