Herzog says without deal, Jerusalem will have ‘Arab mayor’

Herzog says Netanyahu prefers to stand still, but “things are moving, and they are moving against us.”

Turning to the Meretz leader, Herzog says: “I won’t sell illusions to my voters, like you sell them to yours.”

“Without separating from the Palestinians, Israel will turn into an Israel-Arab state,” and Jerusalem will have “an Arab mayor,” he says.

Only separation “will separate the Arab villages from Jerusalem, and keep Jerusalem Jewish,” he says, in listing the benefits of his plan.
