Little support for US Palestinian statehood plan voiced outside government

Labor MK Gilad Kariv is one of the few politicians to publicly slam the government for its declaration rejecting a reported US proposal for a Palestinian state, reflecting a general lack of Israeli buy-in for the plan setting a timeline on the creation of a Palestinian state.

Kariv doesn’t exactly back the US plan with gusto either, but rather goes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for rejecting the wrong thing, in Kariv’s opinion.

“When will the government reject the messed-up ideas from [Itamar] Ben Gvir and [Bezalel] Smotrich, and not an international initiative backed by the US, the West and moderate Arab states?” he tweets.

“There’s only one thing Netanyahu does not reject, political campaigns,” he adds.

Also speaking out against the government for rejecting the plan are former MKs from Meretz, though they are currently not in the Knesset.

“The American plan is a gift that any sane government would adopt,” former party head Nitzan Horowitz tweets.
