Israeli Minister: ‘The Only National State that Can Exist in Israel is the Zionist State’

Israeli Housing Minister Yoav Gallant vowed yesterday that the only national state that can exist in Israel is the Zionist state.

Gallant, who hails from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party, made the remarks while making a fresh attack against the Palestinian presence in the occupied southern West Bank and the Negev.

Earlier this week, speaking in the Knesset, Gallant made similar remarks, claiming that the south is under attack not only from Gaza, citing the illegal and hostile construction in the rural Bedouin areas in the Negev, and the Palestinian Islamist expansion from the Hebron area.
