Palestinians Stance on the New Israeli Leadership:
On Thursday, Bennett portrayed Palestinians at fault for the conflict.
“The truth must be told: The national struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not over territory. The Palestinians do not recognise our very existence here, and it would appear that this will be the case for some time,” he told Israel’s Channel 12 TV station.
The most common opinions of Palestinians on the new Israeli leadership are as follows:
- “There is no difference between one Israeli leader and another”
- According to Hamas, the Islamist group, this makes no difference for Palestinians who govern Israel.
- Israelis are good when it comes to their people. They become harmful when it comes to Palestinians and their rights.
