‘We will not divide the land with our enemies’

Speaking at the traditional central Jerusalem Day celebration at the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva in Jerusalem, Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) responded Wednesday night to a report that the US is demanding that Israel transfer parts of northern Samaria from Area C, under Israeli rule to Area B, part of the Palestinian Authority where Israel is only in charge of security..

According to the report by Channel 10, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu also opposes the move, which would effectively cede control over the affected areas from Israel to the PA.

Bennett said that: “the era in which we treat the Land of Israel as a mere piece of real estate – that era is over. We will not take a saw and slice off parts of our land to give to our enemies. That era is over.”
