Rabbi Shai Piron, number two on Yesh Atid's Knesset list and a resident of the Judea and Samaria town of Oranit, clarified his policy stance in regards to a possible two state solution and land swaps in Judea and Samaria an interview on the Knesset Channel, taking time to also attack Bayit Yehudi's Naftali Bennett for what he called a "delusional" plan.
During the interview, Rabbi Piron said that a two state solution would be best for both sides, claiming, "There is a solution that speaks about two states for two peoples -- that is the future of the State of Israel, two states for two people which includes the settlement blocs and Jerusalem."
However, in response to a question posed to him, Rabbi Piron added that he wasn't opposed to land swaps, even if it meant kicking Jews out of their homes. "If true peace would require moving the isolated settlements I would vote to do it," said Piron, while at the same time adding that at this stage the chances for real peace in the foreseeable future were not high.
Rabbi Piron also used the media exposure to attack the policy positions of Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) and the annexation planned outlined by its chairman Naftali Bennett. Rabbi Piron called the plan a "delusional agenda which denies international assumptions regarding a two-state solution and which leads us to danger."

Re Two States for Two Peoples: When will America be partitioned into Brohomia and Whitelandia? Will San Francisco or the East Village become Fudgpackistan. When will the Kurds have their own state? How about Basques and Ruthenians? Will Romania have to cede a Gypsy state? Which one will be called Romania?
As most know Jews and Arabs are “cousins”, and they frequently refer to each other as such. The difference between the two is when you get two Jews together and you’ll get 3 solutions, and when you get 2 Arabs together you’ll get 3 conspiracies.
