CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Likud MK (member of Knesset) Yuval Steinitz said a "two-state solution [between Israel and the Palestinians] should be dead."
"The idea of a two-state solution should be dead today because unfortunately a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria [the West Bank] would bring about Israel's demise," Steinitz told Jerusalem Post correspondent Tovah Lazaroff, adding that it would "immediately become an outpost for Iran."
"For any foreseeable future, I do not see a partner or any possibility to leave Judea and Samaria or even a part of it," he said.
Steinitz said while Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas talks about peace, in reality he supports terrorism, which he made clear following Israel's release of Samir Kuntar to Lebanese-based Hezbollah terrorists.
When the PA president hugged Kuntar, who had been serving a life sentence for murder, including that of a four-year-old girl whose head he bashed in, Abbas showed that he adheres to the same ideology as the late Yasser Arafat, Steinitz said.
