Bezalel Smotrich in Paris: "There is no such thing with a Palestinian, this is the truth that needs to be heard in the White House" (from Twitter)
The Jordanian Foreign Ministry today (Monday) attacked Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, after he appeared last night in Paris at a conference where the map of "Greater Israel" was presented.
This is because the map also included the West Bank and the Kingdom of Jordan within the borders of Israel.
A spokesman for the Jordanian Foreign Ministry stated that "this is incitement and a violation of the peace agreement between Israel and Jordan."
The statement of the Jordanian Foreign Ministry reads: "We also condemn the racist, inciting and extreme statements of the extremist Israeli minister against the Palestinian people and their right to exist. These are dangerous statements and we demand that the international community condemn them. The Israeli government must express a clear position towards this extreme behavior and against these inciting statements "

Yesterday, during an event in Paris, Smotrich said that there is no Palestinian nation and that "even in the Elysee Palace and the White House, we need to hear this truth."
Smotrich said at the event that the Palestinian people are an invention of the last 100 years and emphasized that his family members "are the real Palestinians".
Smotrich said these things at an event in memory of Jacques Kupfer who was formerly the chairman of the world Likud.
