Defense Minister Naftali Bennett urged Prime Minister Netanyahu to confirm already at a close meeting the sovereignty of communities in Judea and Samaria: "History knocks on the door. Now, the campaign is moving from the White House in Washington to the government room in Jerusalem. Not postponing after the elections, and not settling for partial sovereignty - take everything, and now. We will not allow the Israeli government to recognize a Palestinian state under any circumstances. In the coming days, the government's decision to apply Israeli sovereignty to all areas of settlement should be brought to a decision. "

Efrat Local Council Chairman Oded Ravivi, who holds the Yesha Council's foreign relations portfolio and is in Washington, says in light of the plan's presentation, "There are many achievements in the program, along with very simple challenges for the State of Israel and its settlement. We will have to sit and think about how the plan can be implemented and leveraged for the State of Israel. "
Revivi, who has been in continuous contact with the government's representatives, says that "the proposed plan is not perfect, perhaps even far from being perfect, it allows one side to achieve settlement and even a major part of it, and on the other poses challenges that are not as easy and simple as declaring a state. Palestinian and recognition of the eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem as a Palestinian capital. We will have to sit down and think about how to deal. We must act wisely and not just from the harsh gut feelings. "
"Wesi Dagan, head of the Samaria Regional Council, said in response to the Century Plan:" The plan that has been unveiled has the potential for historical opportunity, but the government's danger should also be immediate sovereignty on Sunday and not things that jeopardize the state's existence. Our century plan is one million Jews in Judea and Samaria. We should thank the US President for his standing with Israel and for changing our thinking and giving back to the settlement. I support the Prime Minister for his decision to apply sovereignty and strengthen the settlement. And calls for not establishing a terrorist state. A terrorist state will not be established in the heart of Israel. "
The Jewish power party were more emphatic and said: "The euphoria and applause conceal the Israeli government's consent to the establishment of a Palestinian state. For four years, indeed, the plan also has advantages, but the basic agreement to the Palestinian state gives up the fundamental right of the Israeli people in the Land of Israel. "
The party also added that: "Jewish power will oppose any outline that includes handing over the territories of Israel and establishing a Palestinian state, forcing the prime minister not to give up the dream of a complete land in return for bringing peace." We are sure if the prime minister would take a more firm stance and declare Because our entire Land of Israel, President Trump would have accepted it too. "
