Annexing part of the West Bank would be reviled abroad, even by Israel’s allies
Israel’s prime minister is trying to sway voters ahead of an election on September 17th
If polls are accurate, Mr Netanyahu will again fail to win a majority. Mr Lieberman’s gambit proved popular; surveys show his small party doubling in size since April. This would not make him a serious contender for the premiership. But it does make him a bigger obstacle for Mr Netanyahu. The ultra-Orthodox parties adamantly oppose a conscription bill and will not support a government that seeks to pass it.
Turnout in April was 68%, down four points from the previous vote in 2015. Much of the drop was due to a poor showing among Israeli Arabs. Their turnout was just 49%, a 15-point decline. The ultra-Orthodox will show up en masse at the urging of their rabbis, which helps Mr Netanyahu’s allies. But he no doubt worries about whether his own supporters will bother.
Now comes his promise of annexation, a long-cherished dream of the far right. In one sense it is a desperate stunt, similar to one he made before the election in April. But it was still jarring to hear an Israeli prime minister speak of annexing one-third of the West Bank, land the world sees as part of a future Palestinian state. It is far from clear that Mr Netanyahu will keep his promise—he has been in power for 13 years and has never taken any actions towards annexing the territory. But even if he does not act, his words help to normalise the idea. A future leader may be less restrained.Read more: The Economist
WHY NOT. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PALESTINIAN. SEND THEM BACK TO THE COUNTRIES THEY WERE KICKED OUT OF Israel’s Settlements Have No Legal Validity, Constitute Flagrant Violation of International Law Lebenstraum, I guess. What about Turkeys Occupation of Northern Cyprus and Also Jordons occupation Israel government is treating the Palestinians in the West Bank like the worst of the apartheid system in SA. Right wing Facism , supported by Trump. Basic Human Rights trampled underfoot , caged in one small zone. Inhuman!!!
Yes That map has sharpie on it. Palestine is full of poverty, slavery and death. Get the f*** over yourselves. A single state solution means the Israeli government (no matter who is in charge) is responsible for EVERY F***ING PERSON IN THE COUNTRY. Won’t get a better deal than that at this time. Palestinians will be completely encircled with more land grabs from Israel. Can nothing stop their trampling over people.
Wait and watch.. You leftist regenerates.... Its happening!
