Settlers call on PM to reject two-state solution

'One country for one people,' protest settlers outside Netanyahu's residence ahead of his upcoming visit to Washington

Some 100 right-wing activists protested outside of the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem Thursday, boasting the slogan: 'The people have decided – yes to settling'.


Protestors waved signs saying, "Netanyahu, you don't have a mandate for concessions", "One country for one people", and "Construction in Yesha now".


MK Michael Ben Ari (National Union), was also in attendance. "Don't fold like you did with Ofer Eini," he called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, referring to recent concessions made to the Histradrut chairman.


"Yitzhar is the nation's security, it is the intercepting missile for every nuclear bomb in the world. Netanyahu – show some leadership, we have one country for one people," the MK said.

Ben Ari further asserted that evacuating the settlements would undoubtedly lead to rocket attacks on central Israel, including Tel Aviv. "Whoever cedes Yitzhar and the rest of the mountain settlements will bring Katyusha rockets on Azrieli."


MK Uri Ariel (National Union) called on the prime minister to "go to Washington and not be afraid; stand up and say: Israel belongs to the Jewish people".


Former Kedumim municipal chairwoman, Daniella Weiss, said she had expected Netanyahu to "start off on the right foot" by unfreezing the construction in settlements.


She also made references to World War II. "Ahmadinejad wants to destroy us, and Obama is kow-towing like Chamberlin to Hitler," she said.


Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpe said the prime minister had a chance to be loyal to Israel, "and if, God forbid, he capitulates to Obama, he will be lifting a hand against God and against our nation".


Wolpe added, "He hasn't yet said: 'Two states for two people', so how come now he is stuttering and not saying there won't be a Palestinian state – this is destruction. There will never be an Arab or goy entity or kingdom in the Land of Israel."
