Education Minister Naftali Bennett said on Israel Radio Tuesday that he respects Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wants the government to last, but that a right-wing government would not succumb to creating a Palestinian State which would cross the trans-Israel highway, or divide Jerusalem.

"I want the government to last until 2019," Bennett said. "But if someone thinks a government that's described as right-wing will create a Palestinian State, on Road 6 (the trans-Israel highway), and divide Jerusalem, we won't accept that."
