Abu Rudeineh: Israeli Official’s Statements Dangerous

RAMALLAH, June 17, 2013 (WAFA) – Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said Monday that statements by Israeli Economics Minister Naftali Bennet were dangerous.

Bennet told Israeli settlers that the idea of establishing a Palestinian state is finished.

“These are dangerous statements made by a minister in the Israeli government which continues to expand settlements and avoid implementing its obligations in addition to imposing conditions to any negotiations,” he said.

“These statements are not only a message to US President Barack Obama’s administration, which is exerting continuous efforts to revive the peace process, but also a challenge and clear rejection of efforts to salvage what is possible to salvage.”

Abu Rudeineh called on the US administration and the international community to condemn these “dangerous and destructive statements that stand against everyone who believes in the two-state solution, a just peace and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.”
