So says Habayit Hayehudi leader, Naftali Bennett,
In his first address to the Knesset, Habayit Hayehudi leader Naftali Bennett on Tuesday rejected any possibility of an agreement that would lead to the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. “There’s no place in our small and stunning piece of God’s country for another state,” he said. “It won’t happen. But friends, before any debate about territory, it must be said: The Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel. Now let’s argue.”
Being ignorant to who Naftali Bennett is, I found an interesting recent piece written about him at Arutz Sheva, Naftali Bennett is Our Prince Charming
MK Uri Orbach of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party had high praise for party head Naftali Bennett in his first speech in the 19th Knesset, comparing him to a fairy-tale prince. Orbach recalled his first speech in Knesset four years ago, when he entered as one of three MKs in the Jewish Home party:
“I compared religious Zionism to Queen Esther – aware of the greatness of her mission, but also a bit afraid of it,” he said. “I also said that maybe religious Zionism is like Sleeping Beauty.”
“We wanted to wake up our Sleeping Beauty, religious Zionism. But I didn’t continue the story, I didn’t recall the prince who needs to give her a kiss….”
“I’m happy we found Naftali Bennett,” Orbach declared. “He is the prince who woke up the sleeping beauty, who, along with his good friends, gave the kiss of life that woke us up politically, woke up this great beauty that will benefit the entire country.” “I want to wish you, Naftali, our friend, that you keep waking up the beauty. She is awake, but now she needs to do something with her beauty, with her abilities,” he added.
“Good luck, Naftali, and blessings on the beginning of your work as the leader of religious-Zionist politics in the state of Israel,” he concluded.
As a side note he is the son of San Francisco Bay Area residents who moved to Israel after the 1967 war, independently wealthy, ($145 million, to be exact) after selling his New York built Internet company.
And I’m willing to wager Christian Zionists in this country are a HUGE fan. (See story and video: Israeli-American on Bennett’s list for Knesset imagines blowing up Muslim holy site)
But that’s ok…after all he’s a “Prince”.
