Obama Pressing Netanyahu as Government Split on 2-State Solution

Israel must agree to give up East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan before the talks have begun.

But the left inside the coalition has not been silent, either. Minister Jacob Perry of Yesh Atid (Lapid’s party) told the same Reshet Bet host that Israel must embrace the 1967 line, possibly with a few minor alterations. He suggested there’s a majority in Israel for a near-complete retreat from Judea and Samaria—he didn’t say anything about East Jerusalem.

Then Perry, who used to be the head of the Shabbac, Israel’s semi-clandestine internal security police, warned that if the prime minister had to make coalition changes in mid sail to facilitate a deal, he would.

And Labor party leader Shelly Yachimovich promised Bibi that, should Naftali Bennett’s party leave the coalition over the 2-state deal, she and her party would provide him with a political safety net. It’s a math issue: Bennett has 12 seats, Shelly has 15.

Of course, this means that in order to end Jewish life beyond the green line, the Labor party would vote in favor of a budget that it spent the past month attacking as fattening the rich at the expense of the middle class and the poor in Israel—even predicting the collapse of whole segments of the country because the new budget is so harsh, neglecting the neediest, taxing unfairly folks with middle income.

But it’s all worth it, for a chance to kill the “settlements.”
