‘That’s true’: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ‘proud’ that he stymied two-state solution

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, under intense fire at home, has made an extraordinary – and defiant – admission.

In the wake of Hamas’s atrocities on October 7, Mr Netanyahu has been accused of deliberately propping up the terrorist group, which rules the Gaza Strip, and undermining its political rival Fatah, which seeks a peaceful two-state solution with Israel.

“Anyone who wants to thwart the establishment of a Palestinian state has to support bolstering Hamas and transferring money to Hamas,” the Israeli Prime Minister reportedly told members of his political party back in 2019.

“This is part of our strategy: to isolate the Palestinians in Gaza from the Palestinians in the West Bank.”

In fresh comments, as reported by The Times of Israel, Mr Netanyahu has claimed vindication for that approach.

“You and your journalist friends have been blaming me for almost 30 years for putting the brakes on the Oslo Accords, and preventing the Palestinian state. That’s true,” Mr Netanyahu told a reporter.

“I’m proud that I prevented the establishment of a Palestinian state, because today everybody understands what that Palestine state could have been.

“Now that we’ve seen the little Palestinian state in Gaza, everyone understands what would have happened if we had capitulated to international pressures and enabled a state like that in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), surrounding Jerusalem and on the outskirts of Tel Aviv.”

A negotiated two-state solution, which would, theoretically, see Israel and a sovereign Palestinian state coexisting side-by-side, is the stated goal of most of the international community, and has been for decades. …

Meanwhile multiple ministers in Mr Netanyahu’s government have expressed support for removing the Palestinian population to surrounding Arab states – a move international human rights agencies say would amount to ethnic cleansing.
