"The Palestinian people are an invention that is less than 100 years old," said the finance minister in a speech he gave in France at a tribute event in memory of Jacques Kupfer. "My grandfather who was 13th generation in Jerusalem is the real Palestinian. My grandmother who was born in Toula more than 100 years ago to a Halutz family is Palestinian"

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich said last night (Sunday) during his visit to Paris that "there is no such thing as a Palestinian".

The minister also claimed: "Who was the first Palestinian king? What language do the Palestinians have? Was there ever a kingdom of Palestine? Is there a Palestinian history or culture?".

He said these things in a speech he gave at a tribute event to the memory of Likud activist Jacques Kupfer, who was a member of the Beitar movement and a member of the World Zionist Organization, and who died of cancer about two years ago. "

My grandfather, who was 13th generation in Jerusalem, is the true Palestinian," claimed Smotrich. My grandmother, who was born in Metula more than 100 years ago to a family of pioneers, is Palestinian." According to him, the Palestinian people is "an invention less than 100 years old."


As part of his trip to France, Smotrich was absent from the weekly government meeting where important economic issues were discussed, some of which he initiated as finance minister.

His people defined his trip to Paris as "two professional meetings" that are very urgent.

In the background of these things, there is growing criticism of the Minister of Finance's absence from economic discussions in his office, as part of the preparation for the discussions of the Settlements Law, as well as conduct that indicates, according to the same sources, a disconnection from the core activities of the office.
