Former Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked has criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on for accepting a peace plan that calls for a Palestinian state.
“The Trump plan was put together by Netanyahu. We should be calling it the Netanyahu plan,” Shaked told Israel Hayom.
“For many years now, since the Bar Ilan speech, Netanyahu has been talking about establishing a demilitarized Palestinian state, more limited than the one Olmert and Livni talked about, but still a Palestinian state. We must not accept a plan that recognizes a Palestinian state,” she said.
Shaked also expressed her disgust that after years of helping Netanyahu prevent the establishment of a leftist government, the prime minister essentially dumped the right-wing bloc at the first chance he got.
“If he wanted us in the government, he would have negotiated intensely with us. He had one conversation with us and even that was through Zoom. That says everything,” Shaked said.
“The problem is that once he has a new bride, he kicks out the old bride,” she added.
