Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett on Monday spoke out against President Shimon Peres's calls for the resumption of peace talks based on a two-state solution, saying that "every time we give up land, people are killed."

Speaking at a Bayit Yehudi faction meeting, Bennett stated that "this is the time to say this is our land and it's not for sale."

Bennett added: "Everyday mothers and their children in cars are hit by rocks on main roads in Judea and Samaria."

The Bayit Yehudi leader said that there is no difference between Israeli residents of Tel Aviv and West Bank settlements, and that the IDF must understand that it is also responsible for protecting the 400,000 Israelis living in Judea and Samaria.
