Bayit Yehudi officials attacked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday after the premier pledged to US President Barack Obama that Israel remained committed to establishing a Palestinian state.

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, the Bayit Yehudi chairman, said that “those who are committed to war against Islamic State and Hamas can’t give them a state.”

“The idea of a Palestinian state flew airborne this past summer along with the missiles that were launched at Ben-Gurion Airport,” Bennett said. “It would be a good thing if we sobered up from the idea, and quickly.”
