MK Gilad Erdan (Likud) on Sunday stated that settlers should not have to be evacuated under a peace deal with the Palestinians.

Speaking at the Jerusalem Post Conference in New York, Erdan said that "to say that settlements are the obstacle to peace is a lie, and I am not going to base my policy on lies."



"Jews were living in Judea and Samaria for thousands of years," he said. "It's not necessary for people to be evacuated from their home," he added, likening this concept to the German Judenrein.

"If the settlements hadn't existed, the discussion today (about the obstacle to peace) would be about the 1948 borders," he said.
