Jews are the landlords of the Land of Israel, Public Transportation Minister and leader of National Union Bezalel Smotrich said in an interview with KAN Reshet Bet radio on Sunday.

“Whoever denies the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish state has no place here, period, including in the Knesset,” he said. “We are the landlords of this land. This land has belonged to the Jewish people for thousands of years.”

Smotrich wrote on Twitter on Friday that the Israeli-Arabs are still in Israel, “at least for now,” because “we are the greatest hosts since the time of our forefather Abraham.”

When asked to explain what he meant practically, he refused to specify whether he meant enforcing measures such as expelling them or revoking Israeli citizenship.

“I want the leadership of Israeli-Arabs to finally come to terms with the fact that in Israel there is a Jewish state,” Smotrich said.
