Bennett: A Palestinian state will never be formed

May 8, 2013 02:04

Economics and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday that a Palestinian state will never be formed, because Israel will never allow for the division of Jerusalem.

"Some say they are against the division of Jerusalem but they are in favor of a Palestinian state. And I ask, where exactly would the Palestinian capital be? In Jericho? In Bethlehem? In Berlin?" he said.

Speaking at a Jerusalem Day event at the capital, Bennett repeated previous statements saying "a nation cannot be an occupier in its own capital city. We are not occupying Jerusalem, it is ours."

"Neither I nor anyone else has the right to divide [Jerusalem]," he concluded.
