Eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria are not occupied territory, Education Minister Naftali Bennett asserts. .
It’s time to apply Israeli law to Area C – 60 percent of Judea and Samaria, where 450,000 Jew and 70,000-80,000 Arabs live, Education Minister Naftali Bennett, chairman of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party, declared. .
Eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, occupied by Jordan for 19 years, were liberated by the IDF in 1967, Bennett clarified.
Israel must state its position clearly, he continued. The tiny Jewish state, about the size of New Jersey, is surrounded by Islamic terror, including Hamas-ruled Gaza, and cannot accept a second Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria.
It is long due that all the foreign embassies in the country move to Jerusalem – the Jewish capital for 3,000 years, Bennett said, adding that Israel cannot be intimidated by threats of violence.
“We have to do the right thing and never cave in to threats. Jerusalem is our home,” Bennett stated.
