Sources in the Prime Minister's office on Monday attacked Economy Minister Naftali Bennett for his comments against the possibility of Jewish settlers remaining in a future Palestinian state.
On Sunday Bennett said
that, “The idea of Jewish settlements under Palestinian sovereignty, as was suggested by someone in the Prime Minister’s Office, is very dangerous and reflects a loss of values.”
Sources close to the Prime Minister said Monday that, "Bennett is irresponsibly harming national interests and diplomatic procedures intended to expose the true face of the Palestinian Authority in exchange for media coverage."
These sources stated that Bennett is undermining Netanyahu's efforts in proving to the international community that it is the Palestinian Authority who pose an obstacle to peace.
