In the future, Palestinians will have an entity, but not a full-fledged state, Defense Minister Benny Gantz told the Munich Security Conference on Sunday. “Eventually we will find ourselves in a two-entity solution, in which we respect Palestinian sovereignty and governance, but we will be respected for our security needs,” he said. The moderator, Souad Mekhennet, senior security writer at The Washington Post, pushed him on his choice of words, “entities” and not “states,” given that the normative international discourse on a resolution to the conflict is often two states. This would involve the creation of a Palestinian state, alongside the already existing Israeli one.

“Did you say a two-state solution is possible?” the moderator asked. Gantz corrected the moderator, explaining that he had chosen to speak of two entities and not two states, by way of underscoring his rejection of an Israeli returning to the pre-1967 lines.

Oh Benny Gantz! He makes it sound like they are possessed by an entity, which in the grand scheme of things, they probably are, but this is silly semantics.

He's just avoiding another election which will happen as soon as the Arab MK's get mad enough at Benny, Lapid and Bennett! The perils of a coalition govt formed only because your sworn enemies have allowed you to work with them attacking the State of Israel.
