Vice Premier Haim Ramon said on Monday that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's coalition would support his plan to give the Palestinians several east Jerusalem neighborhoods in exchange for territory in the West Bank. In an interview with Army Radio, Ramon said that even Israel Beiteinu would back such a concession, as would the Labor Party. "There are two central parties that agree to this," Ramon said. "The most important thing is to preserve the state of Israel Jewish and democratic."
