Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) has attacked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) over their support for a Palestinian state and the need for a political process with the Palestinians.
"We will take down the government over anything that would lead to a division of the Land of Israel and the creation of a Palestinian state. We will fight it," he said during an interview on Meet the Press.
"There will be no Palestinian state here. I will do anything to stop it," he promised. "We are in a government whose basic principles include no Palestinian state. As long as we are here, there will not be a Palestinian state along Highway 6, five minutes from Kfar Saba, and there will be no division of Jerusalem."
The Education Minister then expressed veiled criticism against the Prime Minister and his policies. "It's no secret that there are disagreements. We don't need to give up a single centimeter of land. I don't understand these things." At the same time, he acknowledged that "I have no problem with a regional conference if it considers the broader issues."
As long as the government's initial principles remain in place, Bennett supports expanding the government. "I'm not boycotting the Zionist Union. We need to expand the coalition," he said. "We had a lame duck government and I am ready to bring in any party, as long as the coalition's principles do not change."
