Naftali Bennet: ‘No Place for Palestine in God’s Country’

Naftali_Bennet

The new star of Israeli politics, Naftali Bennet of the Habayit Hayehudi party expressed why he believes there is no place for a Palestinian state.

What if he was Muslim?

‘No place in Israel for Palestine,’ says Naftali Bennett in maiden Knesset speech

(Haaretz)

In his first address to the Knesset, Habayit Hayehudi leader Naftali Bennett on Tuesday rejected any possibility of an agreement that would lead to the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

“There’s no place in our small and stunning piece of God’s country for another state,” he said. “It won’t happen. But friends, before any debate about territory, it must be said: The Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel. Now let’s argue.”

Bennett also referred to his commitment to making the defense burden more equitable.

“My Haredi brothers, army service is also a mitzvah, no less than that,” he said. “It cannot be that they [the Haredim] won’t serve in the army. It cannot be that they won’t bear the economic burden. This is clear to the Haredim as well.”

    True. Lets say vile stupidity instead. :D

    In other words, Zionism = Bad. I also believe Religion is bad but Zionism is worse overall like all forms of nationalism.

  • Tanveer Khan

    Right. So when Palestine becomes recognised as a state it is a obstacle to peace yet when nutjobs like Mr Bennet make these statements its not an obstacle. How i wish i could survive long enough to laugh and jeer at the stupidity of these people with the future generations (wow i sound like a guy who’s about to die)

    he said. “It won’t happen. But friends, before any debate about
    territory, it must be said: The Land of Israel belongs to the people of
    Israel. Now let’s argue.”

    Isnt the whole of Creation ‘God’s country”?

    Naftali Bennet had best leave it to God to decide what’s “stunning” in His eyes. But I would say that it is certainly not what Bennet’s eyes behold as “stunning.” There is nothing “stunning” about oppressing fellow humans, creating the down-trodden, dispossessing the weak, cutting water supply to the weak, cutting power supply to the have-nots, running walls through the homes and farms of the weak, dropping phosphorus bombs on the weak, robbing generations of kids of a any reasonable crack at reasonable life. And that is to say the least.
