Political 'activision' stunt of expected lefty Lapid's supporting a "Palestinian" state in UN speech

Reader comment on item: Declaring Statehood

Submitted by Nicholas (United States), Sep 22, 2022 at 03:52

"there is no place or logic to re-flood the idea of ​​a Palestinian state. The government under my leadership brought about achievements without concessions in Judea and Samaria, which would endanger the security of the State of Israel. There is no room for another state between the sea and Jordan and there is no possibility or prospect for a political move with the Palestinians. Empty slogans like 'two countries' should remain in the 90s, along with many other fads that have passed away."

In Bennett's environment, they see Lapid's intention as a break from the line and ethos of the government of change. In the words Bennett wrote, he placed himself between Netanyahu and Lapid. Netanyahu was against me and argued with the countries of the world, and Lapid returns to the positions of the classical left and raises the issue of the Palestinian state. In Bennett's environment, they focus on a third way, that these are two bad choices, and the world will be able to manage without a Palestinian state. Those around Bennett emphasized that the former prime minister did not deal with the Palestinian issue during his tenure, which did not come up in political meetings, and according to them "it would be a shame to go back". They even called Lapid's move "activism" within the transitional government, which according to them should manage the current affairs of the state and not condition a new policy.



Lapid will announce at the UN: in favor of a Palestinian state • Ministers: he represents himself only.
