(JNS.org) Israel should
discard the two-state solution when it comes to the conflict with the Palestinians
and instead seek to “live with the problem,” Economy and Trade Minister Naftali
Bennett (Habayit Hayehudi) said on Monday in a conference sponsored by the
Yesha Council in Jerusalem.

Israel should annex—“as quickly as possible”—virtually all the areas that were
not handed over the Palestinian Authority under the Oslo accords, including the
Jewish communities and a handful of Palestinian towns. He said Israel should
devise “aggressive” new plans to drastically improve the economic wellbeing of
both the Jewish and Arab inhabitants of Judea and Samaria.
of having a two-state solution established in the Land of Israel is now at a
dead end; never in Jewish history have so many people talked so much and
expended so much energy in something so futile,” Bennett said, according to Israel Hayom.
