Right angry over Netanyahu’s reported readiness to discuss settlement borders

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reported willingness to discuss the borders of Israeli settlement blocs in peace negotiations with the Palestinians would constitute “a dangerous, unprecedented offer,” a right-wing minister said on Tuesday.

Uri Ariel, the agriculture minister and senior representative of the religious Zionist Bayit Yehudi party, reacted to an Israeli media report claiming that Netanyahu told the European Union’s top diplomat that Jerusalem was ready to discuss outlining the contours of areas in the West Bank that Israel wishes to retain in any final settlement with the Palestinians.

He responded with a thinly-veiled threat to break apart the coalition, which currently has the minimum 61 seats.
