Israel must have ‘overriding’ security control in any 2-state solution, Netanyahu asserts

Make no mistake: Israel will not give up on security control west of the Jordan (river) as long as I am prime minister,” Netanyahu stated in an interview with CNN.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel must exercise “overriding” security control of the West Bank in any two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In an interview with CNN, Netanyahu addressed President Donald Trump’s seeming endorsement of the two-state solution during a meeting between the two men on Wednesday.

“Israel has to have the overriding security,” in any political arrangement with the Palestinians, he said, “not the UN, not Canadian Mounties, not — I don’t know — Austrian or Australian forces — Israeli forces have to have the security control, otherwise that place will be taken over by Islamist terrorists, either ISIS or Hamas or Iran, all of the above. And that’s my condition.”

“People say, ‘Was that commensurate with a state?’” he added. “I don’t know, you decide. … I want the Palestinians to govern themselves, but not to be able to threaten us.”

“I’ve discovered that, if you use labels, you’re not going to get very far because different people mean different things when they say ‘states.’ So rather than talk about labels, I’d like to talk about substance,” he said.

Netanyahu has consistently stood by his demand for Israeli security control over Judea and Samaria for some time.

Nonetheless, the prime minister said he will examine President Donald Trump’s upcoming peace plan with “a keen and open mind, because I know there’s great friendship to Israel.”

“The question of what happens, you know, precisely, when he puts it out depends on — I’ll look at it,” he added. “In fact, I was — you know, I always said that I’m willing to look at peace proposals put forward by the United States.”

Meeting with Netanyahu on Wednesday on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Trump told reporters, “I like two-state solution. That’s what I think works best. I don’t even have to speak to anybody, that’s my feeling.”

Trump had previously stated that he would support whatever solution the Israelis and Palestinians agreed to. Shortly after his Wednesday statement, he appeared to return to this position, saying, “If the Israelis and the Palestinians want one state, that’s OK with me. If they want two-state, that’s OK with me. I’m happy if they’re happy.”

Netanyahu faced some domestic friction after Trump’s Wednesday statement, with Education Minister Naftali Bennett, a key member of his government, asserting, “The president of the US is a true friend of Israel. Nonetheless, it is important to emphasize that a Palestinian state, which would be a disaster for Israel, will not be established as long as we are in the government.”

In response, the prime minister reiterated his security demands, saying, “Make no mistake: Israel will not give up on security control west of the Jordan (river) as long as I am prime minister. I think the Americans accept that principle.”

总理本雅明·内塔尼亚胡说,以色列必须在以色列 – 巴勒斯坦冲突的任何两国解决方案中对西岸实行“压倒一切”的安全控制。


“以色列必须拥有压倒一切的安全,”在与巴勒斯坦人的任何政治安排中,他说,“不是联合国,不是加拿大骑警,不是 – 我不知道 – 奥地利或澳大利亚军队 – 以色列部队必须拥有安全保障控制,否则该地点将被伊斯兰恐怖分子,伊斯兰国或哈马斯或伊朗接管,以上所有。那是我的条件。“

“人们说’这与国家相称吗?’”他补充道。 “我不知道,你决定。 ……我希望巴勒斯坦人自己管理,但不能威胁我们。“

“我发现,如果你使用标签,你就不会走得太远,因为当他们说”状态“时,不同的人意味着不同的东西。所以我不想谈论标签,而是谈谈实质, “ 他说。



“发生了什么事,你知道,当他说出来的时候取决于 – 我会看看它,”他补充道。 “事实上,我是 – 你知道,我总是说我愿意看看美国提出的和平建议。”



特朗普周三发表声明后,内塔尼亚胡面临一些国内摩擦,教育部长Naftali Bennett是其政府的重要成员,他断言:“美国总统是以色列的真正朋友。尽管如此,重要的是要强调,只要我们在政府中,就不会建立一个对以色列来说是灾难的巴勒斯坦国。“
