“Whoever thinks we can have peace without a two-state solution is mistaken.”
These are the words of Yair Lapid spoken during the fraction meeting of Yesh Atid in the Knesset.
The Yesh Atid leader faced opposition within party after telling the New York Times, that settlement’s won’t be dismantled, Jerusalem won’t be divided.
The next day Lapid made a u-turn:
“I need to clarify something after my interview with The New York Times. Whoever thinks we can have peace without a two-state solution is mistaken,” Lapid said at a Yesh Atid faction meeting.
Several high-profile figures in Yesh Atid – including Health Minister Yael German, a former member of Meretz; Science and Technology Minister Yaakov Peri, a supporter of the Geneva Accord; and faction chairman Ofer Shelah – have taken stances further to the Left on settlements and talks with the Palestinians.
Shelah spoke out against Lapid’s assertions, saying,
“Any intelligent person knows there won’t be an agreement with the Palestinians without [dividing] Jerusalem.”
“The solution is complex, and in the end it has to express Zionism and the Israeli ethos in relation to Jerusalem, as well as that of the Palestinians,” Shelah explained.
The Yesh Atid faction chairman pointed out that the last government already tried a settlement construction freeze, which was “unsuccessful and didn’t help anyone.”
At the same time, he said the welfare state that developed in the territories should not be perpetuated and building in areas that “will not be in Israel in the future” should not continue, with the exception of immediate needs such as nurseries for towns with many children.

Secular Israelis are like the ancient Hebrews in the Sinai desert. They have forgotten what God of Israel have done for them. They reject the God of their forefathers, and have turned to hedonism and materialism.
Since there seems to be lack of gold to build a golden calf, cash has become their King. They live according to the desire of the flesh.
It is sad that a secular israeli’s like Yair Lapid has started to copy the Islamic lies about Jerusalem and the mountains of Zion. I hope and pray that the flying Nazi flag near Hebron can be a wake up call.
The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.”
Israel can not be betrayed by an enemy. Only by someone considered to be a friend. Always, when the Jewish people has put their trust in the words of their enemies, they have faced pain, agony and massive deaths.
Yeshua the Messiah is the rock of the Jewish nation Only He is the king of the Jews. Let us pray that all Israelis will start to put their trust in their Messiah. Amen.
