Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett stated Tuesday that unlike Defense Minister Benny Gantz, he himself has no intention of meeting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
"My perception is different than that of the defense minister, although we work in harmony," Bennett said to Ynet. "I oppose a Palestinian state and I think it would be a grave mistake to import the failed Gaza model of Hamas which shoots rockets at us, and turn the entire West Bank to that. I see no logic in meeting Abbas when he's suing our soldiers in the Hague and accuses our commanders of war crimes. In my opinion, the Palestinian Authority is a failed entity."
