MK Avi Dichter (Likud) on Wednesday stressed that there will not be a “one-state solution” in which there is one state with an Arab majority, but also made clear that the “two-state solution” is no longer viable.
The comments come amid an apparent change of thought in the White House, after President Donald Trump last week told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that he would not commit to the two-state solution as the only way to solve the Israeli-Arab conflict.
“In a situation where there are 12 and a half million people between the Jordan and the sea, six and a half million Jews and six million non-Jews, it is absolutely clear that there will not be one state in which six million non-Jews will have the right to vote for the Knesset. That’s not on the table. To anyone attempting to terrify us, it should be clear – we will not allow a situation in which there will be one state with an Arab majority,” Dichter wrote on Facebook.
The two-state solution, he opined, has become “a theoretical issue”.
