Tel Aviv, 10 Sha’ban 1435/8 June 2014 (MINA) – Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu declared a unilateral plan to separate the Jews from the Palestinians in the West Bank in order to maintain what he described as the Jewish character of Israel, according to the Israeli newspaper Makor Rishon on Friday.

The newspaper said that Netanyahu shockingly tabled his plan during a meeting last Monday with members of the Knesset foreign affairs and defense committee, Al-Resalah quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

Knesset members who attended the meeting told the newspaper that Netanyahu left some of them confused without clarifying how he would carry out such a plan.

Netanyahu also told the attendees that he would not engage in any contacts or talks with a Palestinian government backed by Hamas and that it would be the right time to take such a unilateral measure.

“I don’t want one state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea,” the newspaper quoted Netanyahu as saying. “Even if the demographic balance does not change to our detriment and there is a Jewish majority, it is still obvious that we need to have a Jewish majority that is overwhelming and for that state to be democratic.”

“And that is why we need to come to a separation,” he noted.

The newspaper said that although Netanyahu did not table a clear-cut plan, it looked like the 2005 disengagement plan in Gaza, which had been executed by former premier Ariel Sharon. (T/P01/P03)
