As expected, the Palestinian Authority (PA) reacted with outrage on Sunday to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahus idea that if a Palestinian state is established in Judea and Samaria, Jews who wish to remain in that state should be allowed to do so.
While Netanyahu did not publicly make this statement, a source in the Prime Minister's Office told reporters that Netanyahu believes there is no reason for the Palestinian state, if it is created, to be mono-ethnic.
The source explained that the idea is a continuation of Netanyahu's statement in his speech at Davos, Switzerland, on Friday, in which he made clear that he does not intend to evict Jews from any communities in Judea and Samaria.
Responding to the idea, the PAs chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, told The Associated Press (AP), "Anyone who says he wants to keep settlers in the Palestinian state is actually saying that he doesn't want a Palestinian state."
"No settler will be allowed to stay in the Palestinian state, not even a single one, because settlements are illegal and the presence of the settlers on the occupied lands is illegal," he declared.

The “Palestinians” keep proving that their “state” is the true “apartheid state” . . . meanwhile, the left propagandizes against Israel for them non-stop even though it’s a pack of lies.
I hope that’s all it was, because more than a few of us thought Bibi had lost his cotton-pickin’ mind.
Gee, not one? But that would mean that it was
jew free, now where have I heard that before?
I suppose all the arabs in Israel will want to
join their palestinian brothers in New Palestine?
Nah, he just dangled the right bait and they couldn’t
help pissing on themselves.
It’s very smart really. It’s not HIS fault that the Arabs won’t come to the table. Not the first time this has been floated either. Always with the same result.
Giving up land to Pali’s is WORSE than giving teenagers whiskey AND the car keys..
there should be no Palestinian arab muslims in Judea or Samaria . It’s JEW-dea ....not arab-dea
Bedouins need to go back to the deserts of Saudi Arabia .
At bayonet point if necessary . Enough of this post Ottoman Empire, post British confusion already . Greater Israel is JEWISH and the land there belongs to none other . Screw the U.N.
