The Palestinian demand that a future Palestinian state be ethnically cleansed of Jews is outrageous and the UN must condemn it instead of adopting it."
Statement on UN Middle East Envoy's Remarks to the UNSC
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Media Adviser:

"The UN envoy to the Middle East's remarks to the Security Council distort history and international law and push peace farther away.

Jews have been in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria for thousands of years and their presence there is not an obstacle to peace.

The obstacle to peace is the unending attempt to deny the Jewish People's connection to parts of their historic land and the obdurate refusal to recognize that they are not foreigners there.

The claim that Jewish construction in Jerusalem is illegal is as absurd as the claim that American construction in Washington or French construction in Paris is illegal.

The Palestinian demand that a future Palestinian state be ethnically cleansed of Jews is outrageous and the UN must condemn it instead of adopting it."
