MK Ahmed Tibi (Joint List) spoke in front a the Jordanian government's authority for the Palestinian affairs Sunday night, saying that the hope for a two-state solution are next to nothing while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government is in power.

"All Palestinian government ministers basically support a two-state solution. On the other side, there is no Israeli minister that supports the creation of a Palestinian state and therefore the chance of a two-state solution in the Netanyahu government are next to nothing."

He added that "for all pratical purposes, the [Palestinian] Authority has no authority." Tibi told the Jordanian group that the PA has stopped controlling the areas under its control and claimed that the IDF has access to every corner. "The ones in control are the coordinator of government activities in the territories COGAT and the 'military government.'"
