A right-wing member of Israel’s Knesset has recognised that Palestinians existed on land now occupied by Israel before Jews came to the country.

In the first statement of its kind issued by a right-wing leader, United Torah Judaism party

Member, Moshe Gafni, said:

Israel has no right to negotiate with the Palestinians because they were here before it and the Jews drove them out of their land.

“The important thing is for Israel to be a Jewish state. Apart from that, we have no right to conduct negotiations with the Palestinians because they were here before us and we expelled them from here,” Arutz Sheva reported him saying.
