In what appears to be the worst crisis yet for the governing coalition, sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday threatened to fire Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett over his criticism of Netanyahu a day earlier.
Bennett was given a message that he has to apologize clearly and unequivocally or there will be a price to pay, a source in the Prime Ministers Office told The Times of Israel.
On Tuesday, Bennett delivered a speech lambasting the prime minister in the wake of a Times of Israel report according to which Netanyahu wants Jewish settlers to be given the choice of living under future Palestinian rule in the West Bank if a peace treaty is sealed.
Our forefathers and our descendants will not forgive an Israeli leader who gives up our country and divides our capital, Bennett declared in what could be construed as a warning to Netanyahu. He also suggested that the governments growing fear of boycotts is what will bring on the boycott. This is no way to handle negotiations, running frightened between the capitals of the world.
Do you know why, why Jews cannot live under Palestinian rule, why Palestinians cant rule over Jews? Because they will kill them, Bennett said at a conference in Tel Aviv. And do you know how I know this? Because it has already happened.

Apologize for what to whom?
Bennett does Bibi a favor. Bibi should have said this, and much earlier, too.
The next time Kerry dares show up with another of his “let’s get Bibi to sell out Israel so we can finally kill the Jews for good” schemes.... Bibi should give Kerry a nice, friendly escort back to the airport and tell him to stay out for good.
(What a total embarrassment to America! And I thought Kerry might become a good Sec of State... boy was I wrong!!!!!!)
Apologize to Netanyahu for saying things like the talking about leaving settlers under Palestinian rule “reflects the loss of a moral compass”. The problem is, Bennett is right.
Better, let Bennett escort Kerry back to the airport! He will speak his mind.
Yes, but Bibi needs the practice of speaking up better on defense issues
it will show Kerry more “respect” to have the Prime Minister drive him to the airport...
we do want to show Kerry all kinds of respect, don’t we?
maybe Kerry can give Bibi some of his many war heroism medals (since he doesn’t want to keep them anyway)
> Netanyahus aides...
Good luck with that.
