Justice Minister Shaked: No Palestinian state with us in coalition

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked rejects statements made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in support of the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, saying that a Palestinian state will not be established with her Jewish Home part in the coalition.

“I will say the obvious: As long as we are in the government, there will be no Palestinian state, there will be no settlement evacuations and we will not give any land to our enemies,” Shaked says during a tour of the West Bank Binyamin region.

Speaking yesterday after Avigdor Liberman was sworn in as defense minister, Netanyahu said, “The Arab Peace Initiative contains positive elements that could help revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians. We are willing to negotiate with the Arab states revisions to that initiative so that it reflects the dramatic changes in our region since 2002.″
