Minister Vilnai Errs

It was reported that

Homeland Security Minister Matan Vilna'i on Saturday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to work towards the creation of a Palestinian state.

"The prime minister needs to behave like [former prime minister] Menachem Begin, who acted against the opinions of many in his party, and to [work towards] establishing a Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel," Vilna'i said an event in Holon.

Even assuming Minister Vilnai's sentence structure and syntax are wrong and that Mr. Vilnai did not mean to assert that former Prime Minister Begin actually worked to establish a "Palestinian state", nevertheless it should be clear that Begin negated any political development that would establsih a "Palestinian state".
