Smotrich: Arabs who don’t accept that Israel belongs to Jews ‘won’t stay here’

Religious Zionism head Bezalel Smotrich says Arabs who don’t accept that Israel belongs to the Jews “won’t stay here.”

Smotrich is responding to Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi, who called a rabbi who said true Muslims must know that Israel belongs to the Jews “racist trash.”

“Ahmad, the Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel, and in the long term Arabs like you that don’t acknowledge it won’t stay here,” Smotrich tweets. “Rabbi Shmuel [Eliyahu] and his thousands of students, us included, will ensure it.”

Tibi retorts: “The fact that you won’t be a minister if not for Arab support gives me great pleasure… Buzz off.”
