The vast majority of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip ignored the importance of changing the Israeli government, saying that The nationalist leader expected to replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is likely to follow the same right-wing policy.

Naftali Bennett, a former leader of a large group of Jewish settlers and a supporter of the annexation of much of the West Bank to Israel, will be Israel’s new leader under a patchwork coalition reached Wednesday night.

Yesterday, Bennett blamed the Palestinians for much of the responsibility for the conflict.

«The truth must be told: The national battle between Israel and the Palestinians is not about territory. The Palestinians do not recognize our very existence here and it seems that this will be the case for quite some time.He told Israeli state television 12.

Speaking ahead of Bennett’s remarks, Basim al-Salhi, a spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said the caretaker Prime Minister was as extremist as Netanyahu, adding: “He will take care to express how extreme he is in ruling».

Similar feelings were expressed elsewhere. «There is no difference between one Israeli leader and anotherSaid Ahmed Rezik, a 29-year-old administrator in Gaza.

“They are good or bad for their nation. “And when it comes to us, everyone is bad, and everyone refuses to give the Palestinians their rights and their land.”

Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip, has said it does not matter who rules Israel.

“Palestinians have experienced dozens of Israeli governments throughout history, right, left, center, as they call them. “But all of them were hostile to the rights of our Palestinian people and all of them were hostile to expansionist policies,” said Hamas spokesman Hazem Qasim.

For the first time in the history of Israel, an Islamist party elected by members of Israel’s Arab minority, representing 21% of the population, are of Palestinian descent, Israelis by nationality.

The party’s leader, Raham, Mansour Abbas, said the coalition government deal would yield more than 53 billion shekels ($ 16 billion) to improve infrastructure and fight violent crime in Arab cities.

However, he has been criticized in the West Bank and Gaza Strip for colluding with those he considers to be the enemy.

“She is a traitor. “What will he do when asked to vote for a new war in Gaza?” said 21-year-old Bantry Karam in Gaza.

“Will he accept to take part in the killing of Palestinians?”

Bennett has been a strong supporter of the annexation of parts of the West Bank that Israel occupied in the 1967 war. But in his first public statements on the issue in recent days, he appeared to suggest a continuation of the status quo, with some easing of conditions for the Palestinians.

“My thoughts on this issue are to reduce the conflict. We will not solve it. “But where we can (improve conditions) – more crossing points, better quality of life, more business, more industry – we will do it.”
