A far-right Israeli minister praised the end of the idea of a Palestinian state today, after US President Donald Trump said he could abandon a two-state solution if an alternative was found.
“A new era. New ideas. No need for 3rd Palestinian state beyond Jordan & Gaza. Big day for Israelis & reasonable Arabs.
Congrats,” Education Minister Naftali Bennett said on Twitter in English.
Bennett, a staunch defender of settlement growth and a supporter of annexing part of the occupied West Bank, applauded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s meeting with Trump in Washington.
