Israeli minister discusses two-state issue, Israel as a Jewish state and Jerusalem

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

Fareed speaks with Naftali Bennett, economic minister in Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet and the leader of the Jewish Home party, about a proposed Jewish nation state law. Watch the video for the full interview.

OK, I've got to ask you about this new proposed law in Israel, which would specify that Israel is a nation for Jews. That, in a sense, would give being Jewish a kind of privileged status. There are a number of people within Israel, there are a number of American Jewish supporters of Israel who believe that this is a terrible mistake. What do you believe?

It's been distorted. It's really simple. Israel is a democratic state and a Jewish state. It's the state of the Jewish people, of the Jewish nation. Now, we don't have a constitution, but about 20 years ago, the constitution has begun to get formed by piecemeal, by a law-by-law.

So we only have the democratic side legislated. So the idea is that to rebalance it so it's both a democratic state and a Jewish state. We will continue to provide full equal rights to all Arabs in Israel. In fact, I'm...

But what does it mean to an Israeli-Arab who is a citizen of Israel to have in the constitution it say that Israel is, you know, a state principally for Jews, that its character, its identity...

It is.

…is one that they can never partake in.

No, they can partake in it, but they have to understand that if they desire to have their own state within a state, that's unacceptable, because they have 23 countries. The Arabs have 23 states. We only have one. In fact, in the whole world, the Jews only have one state and that's all we need. But it's got to be the Jewish state.

    There are 2 types of India ..... neanderthal and ancient. One seyxually advanced the other technologically advanced.

    You see the hindoos invented gang raipes to accelerate nirvana. But then they raipe on moving buses from Point A start of raipe to Point B end of raipe the whole experience ends quicker.

    And while doing so they also kill 3 birds with one stone.
    #1 Enjoy the raipe.
    #2 Get the raipe over quicker.
    #3 Reach another destination as an unintended consequence.

    GENIUS !!!

    Just like US is letting the Puerto Ricans decide their fate, a plebiscite needs to be held in Kashmir under UN supervision to allow these people to decide their future. That is what democracy is all about.

    Therefore, the only Technology Transfer that India needs is how to hold plebiscite in Indian Occupied Kashmir. It took Putin of Russia a week to hold plebiscite in Crimea. India has not been able to accomplish this in 70 years. YES, 70 YEARS !! RUB YOUR EYES !!!

    So India should import this technology from Russia pronto to get from Point A to Point B fastest. Now that is a good thing. We can smell the roses and enjoy after reaching the destination. The journey has been one where the surroundings have been full of bloodshed and genocide in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

    ALL,

    Let me prevail on this "waterboarding techniques" debate.

    Why waste precious resources on conventional techniques to rehydrate/dehydrate hindoo a zz in India.

    Let us take Lord Ganesh's trunk. Marinate it with extra hot chili. Use this to reydrate hindoos rectally. That would take care of the issue.

    I reject a two state solution for Palestine. It belongs to the Arabs.

    Also, "The people of Kashmir have been struggling for many years to have the right to their own destiny. Imagine Scotland being separated into two parts with one being given independence and the other half occupied by British troops at a ratio of one soldier for every two civilians, with restrictions on all their movements. The people of Kashmir have always rejected the idea of having a border separating it."

    At least five Indian leaders/prime ministers/presidents have been assassinated by hinddoous. Several genocides have either been undertaken in India or ongoing as we speak.
    Indian immigrants in western countries are engaged in crimes of d.espikable nature...doctors raiping patients, defrauding insurance companies, insider trading, and so on. It is bad karma all around.

    India is a TWO FACE SERPENT. A source of financing and inspiration for all terrorists in the world the likes of which have attacked thousand of innocents everyday across the world. A place where these extremists seek refuge after attacking neighboring countries. India is a Smithsonian specimen. Like humpty dumpty even USA, NATO and the entire free world are having a tough time holding it together. Living in the shadows of China, defined by bangladesh, haunted by Nepal and Myanmar and punctuated by zillion hindu extremist Terror Organizations, India is struggling to find a meaning for its existence and a place in the new world order. How can it stand up? certainly not on its feet .....perhaps on its knees to seek redemption.
