Public Security Minister Avi Dichter said on Thursday that the government should stick to the principles of the road map and the stages of its implementation, urging the government to avoid putting the cart before the horse. Speaking at a ceremony at Kadima headquarters in Petah Tikva, Dichter said that in any agreement, all of Jerusalem must remain in Israeli hands and must not be divided. At the ceremony, minister Shai Hermesh criticized the Ramon plan to give up major settlements in exchange for annexing parts of the West Bank. Hermesh warned that exchanging territory could snowball into more territory exchanges.
