Several of Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s current coalition partners are attacking him for his plans to call for a two-state solution with the Palestinians at the UN General Assembly.

Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar of the National Union party says it will lead to a terror state in the West Bank.

“The establishment of a terror state in Judea and Samaria will endanger the security of Israel. Most of the Israeli people and their representatives will not allow this to happen.”

Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked of Yamina says Lapid does not represent Israel.

“Interim Prime Minister Lapid does not have the public legitimacy to complicate Israel with statements that will cause harm to the state,” she tweets. “Lapid represents only himself with these statements and not the government.”

“A Palestinian state endangers the state of Israel.”
