Will the Real Naftali Bennet Please Stand Up!

ה' לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג

The Life In Israel's quote of the day:
"I meet a lot with diplomats and Foreign Ministers and other international leaders and there is just about no meeting that does not conclude with a sort of request to advance the peace process. The failure is by us, as by us, for many years, have stopped saying the simple statement that Eretz Yisrael is ours, and in the discussion between justice and security, justice always wins. He who bases the justness of our existence here as severance for the horrors of the Holocaust, at some point it will be over! The foundation for our existence here is not this or that horror or tragedy, but the simple statement that this is ours...We need to stop being ashamed to say - Judea and Samaria are ours not because it protects Gush Dan, but because Avraham Avinu walked there.."

-- Minister of Commerce Naftali Bennet, at the first session of the Eretz Yisrael Lobby of the knesset

I'm confused.
"Eretz Yisrael is ours."

"We will annex only part of Judea and Samaria, and grant Arabs a form of autonomy in the rest."

Bennett's Plan vs. Arafat's Plan
I don't see much of a difference. Do you?
Commerce (and Religious Affairs) Minister Bennett,

Either you believe that ALL of Eretz Yisra'el is ours...

Eretz Yisra'el
 OR believe that it isn't.
PA "President" Mahmud Abbas (Abu Mazen) believes that ALL of Eretz Yisra'el belongs to the Arabs.

Will the real Naftali Bennett please stand up.

You can tell from his speeches, he's trying to please all of the people all of the time.
