Yoav Galant, the retired top general who is running for Knesset as part of Moshe Kahlon’s centrist Koolanu faction, told a gathering of potential voters on Monday that Israel “created the Palestinian nation” and that it would “make no sense for us to remain in heavily populated Palestinian areas.”
“We must recognize what the Zionist movement has long recognized from its inception, and that is that the Zionist enterprise created the Palestinian people that live beside us, and they aren’t going anywhere,” Galant said during a campaign stop in Jerusalem on Monday.
