Naftali Bennett blasts Lapid for Saudi Initiative endorsement

Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett wrote a scathing critique of Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid’s diplomatic plan that Lapid announced with great fanfare on Sunday.

Bennett and Lapid formed a political alliance in the previous Knesset and referred to each other as brothers. Bennett continued to call him a brother in his attack on Lapid, which he published on his Facebook page.

Lapid’s plan calls for holding a regional summit under American auspices in which all sides would commit to negotiations based on the Saudi-Arab Initiative of 2002, which  calls for the 22 Arab League member countries to normalize relations with Israel in return for the creation of a Palestinian state, a withdrawal in the West Bank and Jerusalem, and a solution to the Palestinian refugee problem.
