One of the audience members even saluted the Nazi salute during the minister's remarks. Another left-wing activist spoke with him after his speech. "You told me you don't want two states," she said. "You told me you have no problem with apartheid. You are a Nazi and you are one of the most horrible politicians this country's ever known."

During his speech, Bennett said that a united Jerusalem is better than a political agreement. "85% of the audience here doesn't agree," he continued. "But 85% of the Jewish public supports what I said, which testifies to the detachment from some of the communities in Israel."

"Peace isn't a political agreement," The Education Minister added. "Peace is a state of non-combat...The left doesn't have a monopoly on peace just like the right doesn't have a monopoly on patriotism."
