The Jewish Home party leader's Naftali Bennett announcement came as a response to Netanyahu's Tuesday statement that Israel is ready to discuss the Arab Peace Initiative to reach a settlement of the conflict with Palestine which involves the 'two-state solution.'
"While we're here, there will be no Palestinian state on the highway number 6. We will become a wall against the historical mistakes. If it comes to the 1967 borders and the division of Jerusalem, we will not only leave the government, but will collapsed it," Bennett said in the interview with the Israel's Arutz 2 TV channel.
The proposal which Netanyahu on Tuesday agreed to discuss is aimed at ending the Arab–Israeli conflict and was adopted by the Arab League in 2002. On Monday, Netanyahu told the Israeli parliament that the Arab Peace Initiative has positive elements that can revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians.
Palestinians seek diplomatic recognition of their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip. Rival Palestinian groups Hamas and the Palestinian Authority control Gaza and parts of the West Bank.
