Israel Still Plans To Annex West Bank Despite 'Historic' UAE Peace Deal

Click to see the full-size image

As it was expected, despite the UAE-Israeli peace deal, Israel is not going to give up on the annexation of West Bank territories.

Israel agreed to delay annexation in the occupied West Bank, but not to remove the plan to do this as part of a normalisation deal with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

The Israeli leader confirmed that the plans to annex the West Bank remain “on the table” during the speech on August 13.

“The American president asked me to wait on the extension of Israeli sovereignty over more lands,” Netanyahu said.

“There is no change to my plan to extend sovereignty, our sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, in full coordination with the United States.”

Netanyahu added that “Israel will have comprehensive peace agreements with other Arab countries without returning to the 1967 borders,” and claimed that “Abu Dhabi will make huge investments in Israel.”

This Israeli stance is not unexpected, but goes contrary to the public declarations about the outcome of the deal. In particular, Crown Prince Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed emphasized that “it was agreed to stop Israel’s annexation of the Palestinian lands.”

As it turned out, it was all lies, the fake Jewish mafia gang aims exclusively at theft.

Stop lying, that is not what our media says. The annexation is canceled and the right wing is mad at Bibi for not annexing it, but it was the right call. Bibi might still say it because we are probably heading to another election, so he doesn’t want to lose voters. But the fact is the annexation plan is over.

GAS THE KIKERS!

There was one such “gasman”. He has ended badly.

That’s right, SF is a lying platform so don’t believe anything you read here. You need to listen to regular Israelis like me who wil tell you the truth, I have nothing to gain from lying like a politician. Bibi is using the annexation for politcal needs, but it is over. The only way to annex it is by a peace agreement with the PLO, but not by ourselves.

RichardD

If SF is lying, you should be able to disprove it. You haven’t even tried. Claiming that Netanyahu is lying doesn’t do it. SF is simply reporting the facts that any rational person can plainly see. You’re not running the government, he is.

Man, HE IS LYING TO ISRAELIS SO HE WON’t LIE TO YOU? be serious. He wants to keep his base, Ganzt and Bibi don’t get along and we maybe heading to a fourth elections in November. He needs the 61 seats (out of 120) to escape justice and pass laws to help him become Erdogan, he has failed so far. Never trust what Bibi is saying, we don’t either.

RichardD

Where’s the proof that the annexation is over? You’ve provided no proof. The entire 150 year history of Zionism, and your government’s statements, contradict your claim.

That’s an analysis from a Jew paper in the US, not proof that what you wrote is true:

“The annexation is canceled and the right wing is mad at Bibi for not annexing it”

The annexation isn’t cancelled. And it was already delayed for a variety of reasons, some of which are listed in the article that you linked to:

“On Thursday, with his annexation plan already running aground, Mr. Netanyahu abruptly walked away from it. …

His drive for sovereignty on the West Bank had pushed Mr. Netanyahu into a corner: He was hectored by European leaders, rebuffed by his coalition partners, and distracted from a pandemic that was rapidly spiraling out of his control, even as the goal of annexation seemed ever more elusive.”

“Half of Israelis support annexing parts of the occupied West Bank, although they are divided over whether to take the step without U.S. support, an opinion poll showed on Wednesday.”

– Half of Israelis support West Bank annexation, poll finds –

Makes sense, almost half of the public voted for Bibi in the last elections, but the other half including me hates him. He won’t annex anything without Trump, which gave him a redlight. To be honest – I wanted to annex it too but I think a peace deal with the UAE/KSA is worth alot more and it’s a good thing it got cancelled. Also, this is what I meant when I wrote his partners are mad at him:

It was already not implemented by July as planned. You can call a can kicking exercise cancellation, no pun intended, but these annexation plans are well known. As is international opposition to them.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if what does get canceled is the UAE deal.

RichardD

You wrote:

This is a non starter, the PLO isn’t going to agree to annexation. They might agree to a minor border adjustment land swap based on the 67 lines. But they’re not going to agree to surrender the Jordan River Valley, East Jerusalem, or the West Bank settlement blocks outlined in Trump’s dustbin plan.

That is up for them to decide, not you.

RichardD

Hamas wouldn’t agree to it, and they would do well in elections. Fatah has little incentive to agree to anything beyond border adjustments with the passage of 2334.

If a regional coalition, the legal framework is already in place with the Turk Palestinian protection force resolution, starts to form up. The PLO will have even less incentive to agree to anything other than the 67 lines, or some variation of them.

At that point the negotiations will be over the terms of your withdrawal. Hamas might agree to some variation of the 67 lines. In exchange for normalized relations with Egypt, and something functional with Israel. Provided that other resolutions, like the right of return, stay active. I’m willing to talk with them about it.

What needs to be done is for the Syrian war to be won sooner rather than later, either by getting the US out of Iraq, or by a Gulf/Chinese backed Egyptian intervention in Syria as part of the Syrian government coalition, or both.

And then designing an upgrade for Jordan to make the burden of hosting a regional coalition occupied territories clearing force feasible. That is armed with nuclear weapons and sufficiently robust that it will deter US intervention on Israel’s behalf. So that it can be stood up in Syria, Jordan and Egypt, if the Egyptians will agree to participate. Which hopefully they will.

So that you’l have justification to make a negotiated withdrawal from the West Bank, Golan Heights and Shebaa Farms. I’m willing to go to Gaza and talk with Hamas about this if Mossad doesn’t kill me.

I think Zionism dates much earlier than 150 years ago.

RichardD

Your statements are contradictory. Is there more than one troll on your account?comment image

Ashur-ban-them-all

screw THE FUCKING WEST BANK, and force Israeli citizenship on everyone still living there the Palestinians really had their chance and blew it.

Hell the west were actually part historical Israel while the cost was historical Palestine. So Gaza can be left riot if you want.

Jim Allen

Israel has no “historical.” The fake State of Israel, and it’s Zionist Khazar Atheists pretending to be God’s Chosen Ones are squatting on stolen land. The idea that God would choose criminal Atheists from Eurasia as His chosen one’s is pure lunacy. A lie based on lies.
Pitiful

Ashur-ban-them-all

im talking pre-roman the kingdom of Israel.

i am also well aware of the ” God’s Chosen Ones are squatting on stolen land ” tell aviv should be part of gaza as well as the entire coastline.

But no instead of actually try lay clam to the “historical land” we get blatant land grabs for resources and for vacation villas. I would rather much support Israel if wanted the claim a site that had proof the of Hobi-rew peoples having settled there during the BC era. Rather then trying to annex coasted lander Lebanon in order to grab more off shore oil fields.

Jim Allen

The words came out of the mouth of the fake State of Israel’s criminal leader.
So tell us, who exactly is “lying,” and about what ? Besides yourself of course.

RichardD

I question if this deal will close. Anyone familiar with the conflict knows that the Jews have been planning and implementing the takeover of the land between the sea and Jordan River for over 100 years. This is about as blatant an in your face bait and switch as anything done to date.

And the UAE is going to finance the Jew’s takeover of Palestinian land with massive investments in Israel, what’s wrong with these Gulf traitors?

alejandro casalegno

i am not arab or muslim, but i can´t understand why MOST of arab countries become docile and submissive servants of Israel and USA…….tme ago the arab defeated the Bizantines, the Cruzaders, the Mongols……now they lost Jerusalem, the dignity and the courage……….what shame!!!!!!!!!

Raptar Driver

Arabs have become a lame duck politically and militarily.

Raptar Driver

When America or Israel talk about peace deals it always means peace on their terms.

Peter Jennings

One of them is lying, perhaps both.
