Israeli minister ready to pay his life to grab West Bank
It is not only Bennett, but almost all Israeli officials believe in the idea of great Israel in the land lies between the Nile and Euphrates
“We cannot keep marking the land of Israel as a tactical target and a Palestinian state as the strategic target,” he was quoted as saying by Israeli newspaper Haaretz
Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett called on supporters on Thursday to give up their lives to ensure annexation of West Bank.
Speaking at a conference honouring a late right-wing Israeli legislator, Bennett voiced opposition to the eviction of Amona, an Israeli settlement outpost in the West Bank built on privately owned Palestinian land in 1995 and considered illegal under international and Israeli law.
“We have to mark the dream, and the dream is that Judea and Samaria will be part of the sovereign state of Israel,” Bennett said, using an Israeli name for the occupied West Bank.
The education minister, who leads the religious Zionist Habayit Hayehudi party, called for an active policy to annex the West Bank, saying that the “path of concessions” has failed.
“We cannot keep marking the land of Israel as a tactical target and a Palestinian state as the strategic target,” he was quoted as saying by Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
The West Bank, occupied by the Israel Zionists in 1967, is proposed by the UN and world powers to be, along with the Gaza Strip, home to the Palestinian state. But Israel continues to build and expand Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
It is not only this minister who uttered such remarks, but almost all of the Israeli officials had previously uttered similar remarks and even confessed that they do not believe in peace with the Palestinians, but in ethnic cleansing to them.
