MK Danny Danon (Likud) responded to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech to the US Congress on Tuesday with cautious praise and pointed criticism.

"I applaud the prime minister Netanyahu's passionate and eloquent defense of the Jewish people's historic ties to the Land of Israel," he said. "However, I want to make clear that we will not give in to President Obama's pressure."

Netanyahu does not have a majority in his Likud party, Danon argued. When the prime minister returns to Israel, "he will realize that there is no majority in the Likud to cede large portions of Judea and Samaria, nor is it acceptable that we relinquish our permanent presence in the Jordan Valley.  We were elected to safeguard our historic homeland, not to abandon it."
