The Minister of Finance of the Israeli Occupation government Bezalel Smotrich said that "there is no such thing as the Palestinian people."

He claimed that the idea of the "Palestinian people" is an "invention that is less than 100 years old," according to the Hebrew newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

He continued saying "this is the truth which must be heard by the White House."

Smotrich also said that "one has to tell the truth without succumbing to the lies and distortions of history, and without succumbing to the hypocrisy of the BDS movement and pro-Palestinian organizations."

Earlier this month, Smotrich made statements about "wiping out" the town of Hawara in Nablus.

He later claimed that those remarks were a "slip of the tongue" and came out amid "a surge of feelings."
