Israel's Deputy FM Says Holy Land Is Jewish, Slams Western Interference

Israel’s new deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely has lashed out at the international community’s attempts to create a two-state solution with Palestine.

Speaking to Israeli diplomats on Thursday, Hotovely delivered a defiant message, saying that Israel owed no apologies for its policies in the Holy Land and cited religious texts to back her belief that the Holy land belonged to the Jewish people.

The Guardian reports:

The speech by Tzipi Hotovely illustrated the influence of hardliners in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s new government, and the challenges he will face as he tries to persuade the world that he is serious about pursuing peace with the Palestinians.

Hotovely, 36, is among a generation of young hardliners in Netanyahu’s Likud party who support West Bank settlement construction and oppose ceding captured land to the Palestinians. Since Netanyahu has a slim one-seat majority in parliament, these lawmakers could complicate any attempt to revive peace talks.

With Netanyahu also serving as the acting foreign minister, Hotovely is currently the country’s top full-time diplomat.

In an inaugural address to Israeli diplomats, Hotovely said Israel has tried too hard to appease the world and must stand up for itself.

“We need to return to the basic truth of our rights to this country,” she said. “This land is ours. All of it is ours. We did not come here to apologise for that.”

Hotovely, an Orthodox Jew, laced her speech with biblical commentaries in which God promised the land of Israel to the Jews. Speaking later in English, she signalled that she would try to rally global recognition for West Bank settlements, which are widely opposed.

“We expect as a matter of principle of the international community to recognise Israel’s right to build homes for Jews in their homeland, everywhere,” she said.

Hotovely will manage the ministry’s day-to-day functions, but Netanyahu will remain in charge of foreign policy.

During the recent election campaign, Netanyahu angered his western allies by saying he would not permit the establishment of a Palestinian state on his watch. On Wednesday he told the visiting EU foreign policy chief that he remains committed to a two-state solution.

Netanyahu’s spokesman, Mark Regev, declined comment on Hotovely’s speech, but said Netanyahu’s statements Wednesday reflected his policy.

    Jew scum! Exterminate this demonic race. Isn’t bit convenient that they wrote their own Torah that made them “The Chosen Race” and “the Jews” all that land. That scum trash will no longer fool anyone. The days of using your self-created Judeo-Christian politics is OVER! No one falls for the Jew tool of domination anymore, as no one care what the Jew god has to say anymore. Your days are numbered!
