Palestinians should become full citizens in Israel, according to Habayit Hayehudi MK Zvulun Kalfa.
"We should grant Palestinians full citizenship, equality, invest in their local infrastructure and [give them] voting rights in the Knesset," Kalfa said, in a surprising suggestion from a right-wing MK.
The proposal is born out of Kalfa's ideological objection to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He believes that the state should draft a law claiming all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea as an undivided Israel, and making all residents within its borders Israeli.
Kalfa feels this will put an end to claims of Israeli apartheid or maltreatment of its Arab residents.
Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett is the only coalition party leader who opposes a two-sate solution, but he suggests limited autonomy for Palestinians as opposed to having them fully integrate, as Kalfa suggested.
"It is obvious that we cannot go the way of a two-state solution," Kalfa told Israel Hayom. "I am in favor of one country for everyone. Palestinians? There has never been and there currently is no [Palestinian] nation."
Kalfa, who was once a resident of Atzmona community in the since evacuated Gush Katif settlements, also provided an answer for his detractors who claim that Israel will no longer be a Jewish state if his suggestion is followed. "One way or another, the Jews will remain the majority in the state," he said.
