In a speech MK Nir Barkat (Likud) addressed the Pompeo Declaration and called on the US government to lay the “deal of the century” on the table, even before the upcoming elections .
“The declaration recognizes and accepts the historical and legal right of the Jews to live wherever they want, as in other countries, as in Israel. The declaration creates tremendous opportunities for the State of Israel, and a historic opportunity for the Israeli government, headed by Netanyahu and the Likud.”
Barkat noted the State of Israel’s development plan in the West Bank, according to his vision, looking 50 years ahead: “The Israeli government should set a residential planning target for two million people in Area C, which requires broad metropolitan vision, preparedness and infrastructure development. Infrastructure will serve the Israeli population first and foremost, but it is also possible to meet the needs of the Palestinian population,” he added.
