MK Bezalel Smotrich

MK Bezalel Smotrich, speaking Monday at a conference of the magazine B’Sheva, declared that only way to suppress Arab terror would be to quash any hope they harbor to create a Palestinian state.

“One has to be blind to believe there’s a chance to create here two states that would answer the national aspirations of both Arabs and Jews,” Smotrich said. In his view, “in the end the left is correct in saying there is no military solution to the terror. There’s no way to deal with a 15-year-old girl who picks up a knife and goes out to kill a Jew.”


Smotrich called on Israel to dismantle the Palestinian Authority at once. “We must establish more settlements, encirclements, closures and check points. As long as the Arabs harbor some hope that some day they could defeat us, terrorism will remain. Only once their hope became realistic, accepting the fact that this land was given to us by God, would terrorism diminish.”

He also said the Torah of Moses should be the moral foundation for the Jewish State.

“It won’t be easy to convince ourselves, the world and the Arabs that we’ll never allow for an Arab state to be established here,” Smotrich clarified. “After the difficult stage, when we can expect a violent eruption in response to this quashing of their hope, there will come the stage of acceptance, and our enemies will agree to choose between three options: stay and give up their national aspirations; give up and move away from here with our assistance; or become sha’hids-martyrs — also with our assistance.”

  1. its very easy to dismantle the PA…. just pass a ruling that no more funding, medical care, jobs, electricity, water and infrastructure will be transferred from Israel into arab villages anymore… that will force the PA to start providing all these things to their own people themselves…they will not last one year…. not because there is no money because they are all BILLIONAIRES there… it will not last because they won’t do it

  2. yes he wants to have more permits to give the people more better living and they should just comeplete the task and end the palestinian athority and finally end the charade of those arabs who want a state for their own they dont want one period. everyone will be much happier, you never will have a pure israelis state it will always be mixed so get used to it, and you will be better for it, besides most of those arabs are jews anyway they have been oppressed for so many years to be forced to follow islam or die,

  3. If Israel can do no better than to elevate an ignoramus like MK Bezalel Smotrich, it's doomed.
    The overwhelmingly genocidal mythical so-called Palestinians have a state, you big dope, i.e., Jordan. It was formed as Arab Palestine next to the 22% left for Jewish Palestine.
    And, moving more Jews into areas overflowing with overwhelmingly genocidal mythical so-called Palestinians will just give the later more targets to realize their highest life aspiration, murdering & injuring innocent civilians.
    Israel will get just as many monkeys (world leaders & Muslims) jumping up and down if they build within their own border for just as long a period of time as it would get by legally and morally REPATRTIATING the overwhelmingly genocidal mythical so-called Palestinians, including Orthodox Islamic Israelis (as opposed to heterodox) back to Jordan and Egypt.

  4. As long as the Arabs feel that there is the least hope of getting rid of us, they will refuse to give up this hope in return for either kind words or for bread and butter, because they are not a rabble, but a living people. And when a living people yields in matters of such a vital character it is only when there is no longer any hope of getting rid of us, because they can make no breach in the iron wall.

    –Ze’ev Jabotinsky, November 4, 1923

  5. Israel should annex the territories and NOT offer citizenship…only guest permits for those permitted to stay. The writer seems to be so concerned what the world thinks of Israel. Has he not noticed that the UN is already rigged against Israel and the boycott Israel movement, BDS, has been in place a few years? If Israel has to worry about what the world thinks for their survival they may as well raise the white flag now. Israel must do what's best for Israel…never mind the hissing and the ruffled feathers.

  6. One thing is for certain: Allowing the situation to continue on with the PA like we have is suicide for us. Personally, I know the Palestinians will NEVER accept any Jewish state, whatsoever. We all know that. We just do not have the will to to address the Palestinian Question. Sound familiar?
