Moshe Feiglin, who earlier on Tuesday was detained by Israeli police after trying to pray at the so-called Temple Mount, proposed paying Palestinians to leave West Bank. 
 
"The state of Israel is paying 10% of its GNP every year for the two-state solution and the Oslo Accords. It's paying for separation fences, Iron Domes and a guard at every café. Soon we'll have to place Iron Domes in every school in Tel Aviv," he told the "Women in Green" conference on Tuesday. 
 
"With this budget we can give every Arab family in Judea and Samaria $500,000 to encourage it to immigrate to a place with a better future."
 
"You may say, 'But no one will have them.' That's not true because the Western nations are shrinking due to low birth rates. The question is whether the world will have Sudanese migrants who can't build or migrants from Judea and Samaria who do know how to build,” Feiglin added.
