Netanyahu announced during an interview on Saturday night on Channel 12 news that after the US’ recent recognition of Israel’ sovereignty on the Golan Heights, there are discussions about Israeli annexation of parts of Judea and Samaria, including the area of Ma’ale Adumim south-east of Jerusalem.

Security was the main concern in these discussions, he explained.

Shai Alon, head of the Beit El Council stated that he supports the prime minister and says that the “Israeli annexation of Judea and Samaria should have happened a long time ago. Judea and a Samaria are inseparable from the rest of the country,” Alon said, adding that Netanyahu “will be measured by his actions, and not his words.”

Judea and Samaria is home to about 500,000 Israelis.

Yochai Damari, head of the Mount Hebron Regional Council, stated that he “welcomed the prime minister’s clear statement.”

“This is a necessary declaration by Prime Minister Netanyahu. For years we have been waiting for the Israeli government to make this moral and correct decision – and to our joy, this day has come,” he stated.

He called on Netanyahu “to act towards the application of sovereignty as a first step with the establishment of the new government, and to stand firm against the pressures of the Americans and others with the publication of Trump’s Deal of the Century,”  relating to President Donald Trump’s pending peace plan, which is expected to be published after the elections.

“This is the time to commit with actions to our sovereignty in Judea and Samaria,” he concluded.

    Bibi is bonkers!

    All of Judea and Samaria should be annexed with possibly autonomy for the Arabs in Area A.

    Annexing “settlements” leaves the option open to the Arabs of having a statelet with some Jewish islands. Seeing how they regard Jews that would create outside pressures on Israel and inside pressures as more and more Jews become victims of “peace”. Or should that be victims of jihad?

  2. john nemesh says:

    IF the Right win, annexation is the greatest one mistake ever made during Israel’s existence.

    I only hope Bibi loses, or if he wins, he has lied, and will not annex.

    israel and all Jews will bear the consequences if he does.
