Netanyahu Says ‘From the River to the Sea,’ a Phrase Zionists Claim is Genocidal

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the notion of Palestinian statehood in a news conference on Thursday, claiming it “would endanger the state of Israel.” But he also invoked geographical language that has become a point of bitter contention as Israel’s continued military bombardment of Gaza continues in response to the Hamas attack of Oct. 7, saying that “in the future, the state of Israel has to control the entire area from the river to the sea,” according to an English translation of the speech from Israeli news channel i24News.

According to another translation, Netanyahu said that Israel “must have security control over the entire territory west of the Jordan River” — which effectively means the same thing.

Few who have followed the conversation about the deadly conflict in the Middle East these past several months could have missed the provocation in this remark: Israel and Zionists around the world have continually denounced the slogan “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” when used by those supporting Palestinian independence, saying it constitutes “eliminationist” or “genocidal” rhetoric aimed at Jewish people. Pro-Palestine demonstrators, meanwhile, say it is a rallying cry for equal rights and autonomy.
