Netanyahu, ready to uproot more Jews, comes under heavy fire

| |

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came under heavy fire from his right-wing constituency and member of his own Likud Party this week after suggesting he was ready to uproot more Jews from the biblical Land of Israel in the name of “peace.”

In a nationally-broadcast Knesset speech on Monday, Netanyahu laid out the main points of the peace proposal he will present when he addresses the US Congress next week.

Netanyahu stated that he will not relinquish the large Jewish settlement blocs in Judea and Samaria, but said he was prepared to offer “painful compromises” that will require uprooting Jews living in more isolated communities throughout the biblical heartland.
