Netanyahu told Sec. Blinken that US recognizing Palestinian state would be a ‘prize’ for planners of Oct. 7

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently told Secretary of State Antony Blinken that US recognition of a Palestinian state would be a “prize” for the Hamas terrorists who planned the October 7 massacre.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the comments to Blinken when the two met in person last week, Axios reported Thursday. The prime minister told Blinken that any recognition, whether direct or indirect, “would be an award for those who planned and orchestrated the massacre of October 7.”

President Biden and other U.S. officials have repeatedly said Israel’s war against Hamas should end with a two-state solution and have hinted at the possibility of the U.S. recognizing a Palestinian state.

The United States could indirectly recognize a Palestinian state if it does not use its veto to prevent the United Nations from fully recognizing Palestinian officials as a member state.

Israeli ministers have also reportedly made it clear to the Palestinians that a two-state solution is off the table.

Israeli national security adviser Tsashi Hanegbi also spoke with Palestinian Minister Hussein al-Sheikh last week and told him he would receive a similar response from a future Israeli government, an Israeli official told Axios. .

Over the past 75 years, Israel has made repeated efforts to negotiate a peace deal or a two-state solution with Palestinian and Arab leaders, but each offer has been rejected.

“I do not believe a two-state solution is possible, and even if it were, I would not recommend it. For more than 50 years, hundreds of self-styled ‘pacifists’, led by the US, have tried to put pressure on Israel. ” and lead the Palestinians to a two-state solution,” former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman told Fox News Digital last month.

“Efforts have repeatedly failed, no matter who is in charge, and the reasons are profound and abiding: 1) Palestinians accept a Jewish state,” said Friedman, who served as U.S. ambassador under former President Trump. 2) They are unlikely to accept a Jewish state.” The probability of the Palestinian state becoming a terrorist state is very high and poses an existential threat to Israel, and he 3) West Bank (which Bible believers call Judea and Samaria) is Biblical Israel, and without Israel’s control, hundreds of Jewish and Christian holy sites would be destroyed. ”
