'United Jerusalem More Important Than Shaky Peace'

Monday, June 12, 2017 |  Israel Today Staff

Education Minister Naftali Bennett publicly stated what has in more recent years become the position of a growing majority of Israelis–namely that a united Jerusalem under Israeli control is more important than a shaky peace deal with the Palestinians.

"Jerusalem is above logic," insisted Bennett. "We would rather have a united Jerusalem than a diplomatic agreement."

The statement was greeted with jeers from the crowd. But that was expected, given that Bennett was speaking at the Israel Conference for Peace organized by the ultra-liberal daily newspaper Ha'aretz.

Bennett reminded the naysayers that while they may disagree with his conclusion, most Israelis do not. "Some of this crowd may not agree with what I said, but 85% of the Israeli public does agree."
