Jerusalem, February 22, 2011 - Member of Knesset and World Likud Chairman Danny Danon told an audience of Likud Anglos that the Likud does not support the creation of a Palestinian state.

In support of his statement, Danon cited discussions with Likud members all over the country and a resolution of the Likud Central Committee from 2002, which Benjamin Netanyahu himself had initiated.

Danon also mentioned a resolution of the Central Committee during the 10-month settlement freeze in which the Committee voted to support settlement construction and declared that at the end of the freeze building should continue.

At the event, Danon discussed a wide range of issues, including passage of Iranian ships through the Suez Canal, which Danon characterized as a message from Iran, aliyah issues and the need for greater political participation among the Anglo community.

One participant, a Nina Friedman, asked Danon about the prospect of electoral reform, suggesting the establishment of district elections for the Knesset. Danon responded that the best way to initiate such a reform was to do so gradually, making a certain percentage of Knesset seats elected through district elections.
