Education Minister Naftali Bennett declared Monday evening following an interview on Sky News Arabic with White House Middle East adviser Jared Kushner, that the people of Israel is facing a “clear and immediate danger right before our eyes, and that is the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

In the coming elections, said Bennett, the question is clear: “right, or ‘Palestine.'”


Chairman of the “New Right” Party, Bennett, responded Monday to statements made by President Donald Trump’s White House adviser on the Middle East peace plan, Jared Kushner, regarding the Trump Administration’s upcoming Deal of the Century proposal for Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

“Jared’s words prove what we already know,” Bennett said, “that the day after the elections, the Americans will push the Netanyahu-Lapid-Ganz government to allow the establishment of a Palestinian state on Route 6, to agree to the division of Jerusalem – and Netanyahu will be forced to acquiesce.

“Netanyahu and Trump are coordinating the timing of the plan’s release to be immediately after the elections. Even the crawling into the coalition of the left wing Lapid-Ganz party is already understood.

“There is only one way to prevent this, and that is with a strong and powerful ‘New Right’ party, that will recommend Netanyahu, but will exert counter-pressure to stop the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“In the upcoming election, the question posed is ‘right or Palestine’.”
