When asked about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Peretz said he wants to “extend Israeli sovereignty to all of Judea and Samaria,” using to biblical name of the West Bank. He vowed to secure Palestinians’ rights, but said “they won’t have a right to vote.”
Asked whether this does not constitute apartheid, Peretz didn’t rule out the option that it is.
“We live in a very complex reality in Israeli society and in the State of Israel, and we’ll have to find the solutions,” he added. “Where sovereignty will be, whether it applies on people or on land.”
