Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that the West Bank settlements of Efrat and Gush Etzion will always be part of the State of Israel.

"Efrat and Gush Etzion are integral parts of greater Jerusalem," Netanyahu said while visiting a school in Efrat. "They are the southern gates of Jerusalem and will always be part of the State of Israel. We are building Efrat and Gush Etzion with enthusiasm, faith and responsibility."

Netanyahu also touted his education program, specifically the newly-instituted free-education from the age of three. "It used to be an issue of money," he said. "Today it's free - equal opportunity from the age of three."
