The Bayit Yehudi party should issue clear red lines for remaining in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, Bayit Yehudi Minister Uri Ariel wrote in a letter to party leader Naftali Bennett Saturday night.

Ariel wrote the letter following reports of gestures Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is willing to make to the Palestinians to ease tensions. The gestures reportedly include transferring a small portion of Israel-controlled land in Judea and Samaria that is close to Arab cities to the PA for economic development, strengthening the PA’s security forces and increasing economic benefits.

“Such gestures would be an ethical crime and a prize for terror that would endanger Israeli lives,” Ariel wrote Bennett.

Ariel asked Bennett to raise such issues in the next Bayit Yehudi faction meeting. Bennett did not respond Saturday.
