Israeli PM Netanyahu Keeps Up Pressure For Immediate West Bank Annexation

Click to see the full-size image

On the occasion of the swearing in of the new government on Sunday, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his intention to annex the West Bank. Israel’s belligerent attitude keeps adding to existing tensions in the region, encouraged by the unconditional support it receives from the occupants of the US White House and Congress, notable recent examples including Israel’s declared intention to permanently annex the Syrian Golan Heights, complete impunity for Israel’s regular missile attacks against targets in Syria and massive and selective bombardments of the inhabitants of Gaza, and the transfer of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

The new ‘unity government’, formed after protracted negotiations with his political rival former army chief Benny Gantz, was sworn in after receiving a formal vote of confidence from the Knesset (Israel’s national parliament), ending almost a year and a half of political stalemate and paralysis. Although the power sharing agreement stipulates that each party will appoint a similar number of ministers and they will have a mutual veto power over most major decisions, it appears that Netanyahu got the best of the deal as he will be prime minister for the first 18 months. Will Gantz get the opportunity to take over the prime ministership in 18 months? A lot can happen in that time…

Netanyahu lost no time in signalling his determination to continue pushing Israel’s territorial claims well beyond the internationally-defined borders. He was quoted in a report by the Asharq Al-Awsat news agency as declaring during the parliamentary session that his government should apply Israeli sovereignty over the illegal West Bank settlements inhabited by around 400,000 Israelis in the occupied Palestinian territory, saying:

“It’s time to apply the Israeli law and write another glorious chapter in the history of Zionism.” He was quoted as claiming that the annexation “won’t distance us from peace, it will bring us closer.”

The latter statement seems far removed from reality, a point that was made clear by King Abdullah II of Jordan just days earlier in an interview with German news outlet Der Speigel, during which he stated that any attempt to annex parts of the West Bank “will lead to a massive conflict with Jordan.”

The official website of the King’s Royal Hashemite Court elaborated on this point on Friday:

Asked about the impact of Israel potentially moving forward with the annexation of parts of the West Bank, the King said it could lead to a massive conflict with Jordan.

“I don’t want to make threats and create an atmosphere of loggerheads, but we are considering all options. We agree with many countries in Europe and the international community that the law of strength should not apply in the Middle East,” His Majesty added.

He reaffirmed Jordan’s position that “the two-state solution is the only way for us to be able to move forward,” and urged all countries in the region to focus on collective efforts to fight coronavirus instead of provoking more conflict.

King Abdullah II further stated: “Leaders who advocate a one-state solution do not understand what that would mean. What would happen if the Palestinian National Authority collapsed? There would be more chaos and extremism in the region.”

    Gosh… and who would want more chaos and extremism in the region your highness? Maybe you should come out of your cave every so often and read the f’king news – that is precisely what ‘certain’ leaders want. Not that the useless and thoroughly usurped Palestinian National Authority cucks would be missed, but where would all its Mossad agents find another cushy job like that?

Maybe you’ll pretend to matter and be a tough guy, but YOU will remain irrelevant and die alone. Meanwhile the Jews will continue to invent things, will Nobel prizes and be leaders in all things. Good luck loser. The only thing you’ll accomplish is being a nothing

        • Really!?

          ISIS is too scared to fight Israel, that’s why they kill other muslims – Turks (even though they support ISIS) Iranians, Syrians, Iraqis. Oh, BTW, most of the other losers here think the Mossad & CIA control ISIS so i’m not sure why they would have their own tool attack them. You guys need to get your lunacy straight.

          • Xoli Xoli

            Really Remember ISIS are alway desperate for virgins.Nobody wants war but Israel wants.

          • Really!?

            You’re very focused on virgins. I’m beginning to suspect you are one and the only way you think that will end is if you die a martyr.

          • Xoli Xoli

            Not while there are virgins to chop.

    Maybe writing a “very mean letter”.

      The Zionist parasites are sowing the seeds of their destruction as they are on stolen land and on borrowed time.

    We will annex it, and you can all cry. Glory to Israel, Jordan Valley will be the new Israeli Valley, Amen.

    • Traiano Welcome

      Annexing the West Bank will be like swallowing a cup of poison, for israel.

      It’s going to be entertaining to watch …

      • <>

        It’s not the entire West Bank, only our border area with Jordan. You can enjoy the show, just don’t expect us to play it cool if the Palis start another Intifada.

        • Traiano Welcome

          Why stop there? You’ve already thieved most of the land, why not just be done with it and pilfer the rest ?

          • <>

            Well, the Valley will be under our control anyway and the Palis know it, we won’t give up on the border with Jordan in any future deal. The rest of the West Bank is negotiable, but it doesn’t matter because they don’t want peace or else they would have accepted other deals in the past.

          • Traiano Welcome

            You should listen to your Rabbis:

            In an interview with Mehr News Agency, Rabbi Weiss said the Israeli regime was established in Palestine by committing all kinds of crimes against its people, which is a violation of Jewish religious laws towards fellow human beings, adding that the anti-Zionist Jews support “the return of the entire land to the Palestinian people”

            His interview was conducted on the occasion of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe) and on the eve of Quds Day when back in 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forcibly evicted from their homeland and Israel proclaimed existence. The refugees were forced to seek refuge in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip, often without citizenship being granted.

        • Peter Jennings

          isreal has borders? tell that to your nutty yahoo.

          I guess the Golan Heights was also your border with Syria, until your apartheid regime decided it wasn’t.

          • <>

            The Golan was taken because they started a war and lost, they will never get it back. If they open another front from Syria, we will annex the Druze villages too.

          • Peter Jennings

            ‘They started a war’……..good one.
            It’s always somebody elses fault, isn’t it.
            The day is coming whereby the isreali regime will bite off more than it can chew.

          • <>

            They did start attacking us back in 1973, we all know how it ended. Israel and the IDF are ready to confront Iran and/or other terroristic organizations that threat our national security. The new man in the DM office will lead the operations, and I’d put my life in his hands. A war is a matter of time, and the U.N will not stop us again.

    • Fantax

      Demographics will kill you one day, like South Africa and Rhodesia (present day Zimbabwe) if you carry on with this silly policy. Ben Gurion, Rabin and Sharon understood it, your current leaders not.

  • verner

    the 8 maps tells you all you need to know about jews, thievery part of their dna and a penchant for hitler’s lebensraum plans and not only that a penchant for hitler’s view on less worthy people, the palestinians, and thus ethnic cleansing and concentration camp Gaza and wholesale killing of kids throwing stones – not forgetting forced relocation of palestinians from their birthland to dumps and tearing down buildings and cutting olive trees being the source of livelyhood for these palestinians and going on as if there is no tomorrow. sorry to say there is a tomorrow and that is when the jews finally will be put 6 feet under never to be seen again and that will have to include jews embedded/entrenched elsewhere, these double passport carrying fifth columnists serving the palestinian jews faithfully, stealing secrets, in line with what their dna says, and supporting the war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by the palestinian jews by remitting vast amounts of money to the jews in palestine and thus being equally guilty of the crimes committed.

    it’s a sad state of affairs when the world quietly accepts this wholesale murder of a people ´-it must be stopped and since the jews in every aspect has forfeited the right exist, the million of arabs surrounding the evildoers must act and clear palestine from all signs of the jewish occupation.

    • Really!?

      Blah blah. You got a big mouth for a little girl.

  • Rafik Chauhan

    Jordan should form partnership with iran Syria Russia and Iraq and allow hezoollah to train the resiistance. and create ressitance force. its better to die with diginity instead of staying as slave of devil forever. Atleast you can face god with diginity.

    • verner

      yeah that would be the aliance of iron dooooom and spell the finalization of all jews in palestine, there is no need for jews, their evilness is omnipresent and must come to an end. and that includes the double passport holding and highly treasonous jews embedded/entrenched in societies around the world. good friggin riddance once they are a bad memory for the world to forget.

    • Traiano Welcome

      Jordan fears Hezbollah, they are afraid of a repeat of Black September:

      “After Jordan lost control of the West Bank to Israel in 1967, Palestinian fighters known as fedayeen moved their bases to Jordan and stepped up their attacks on Israel and Israeli-occupied territories. One Israeli retaliation on a PLO camp based in Karameh, a Jordanian town along the border with the West Bank, developed into a full-scale battle. The perceived joint Jordanian-Palestinian victory against Israel during the 1968 Battle of Karameh led to an upsurge in Arab support for the fedayeen in Jordan, in both new recruits and financial aid. The PLO’s strength in Jordan grew, and by the beginning of 1970, groups within the PLO had started to openly call for the overthrow of the Hashemite monarchy.”

  • Peter Jennings

    Lebensraum begins.

  • Traiano Welcome

    Annexing the West Bank puts Israel at a strategic disadvantage.

    “These plans have generated expressions of horror amongst Israel’s security establishment, which has grown used to being listened to, but which now wields less influence over policymaking than it once did.

    This is not because the former generals hold any moral objection to expropriation of Palestinian land or because they think Palestinians have a legal right to it. No, their objections are based on how annexation could imperil Israel’s security.

    A fascinating resume of their thinking is provided by an open-source document published anonymously by the Institute for Policy and Strategy (IPS) in Herzliya. They state that annexation would destabilise the eastern border of Israel, which is “characterised by great stability, a quiet and a very low level of terror,” and that it would cause a “deep jolt” to Israel’s relationship with Jordan.”

  • Traiano Welcome

    What concerns the Israeli analysts is the burden that would be placed on the army. “The effectiveness of security cooperation with Israel will deteriorate and weaken, and who will replace it? IDF!

    Forcing many forces to deal with riots and order violations and the maintenance of the Palestinian system.”

    The security establishment goes on to say that annexation could trigger another intifada, strengthening the idea of a one-state solution “which is already acquiring a growing grip in the Palestinian arena”.

  • verner

    an unpleasant item making the rounds on the sf-commentary fields under the name ‘really’ and the one and only sensible view of ‘really’ is that he is jew troll and part of the leper colony with the likes of ironzion, joke321 and quite a few more and the only thing worth doing as regards ‘really’ and ironzion is to ignore him and them full stop – like the jews in general and soon to be a distant memory. they are already on the endangered list and lets keep them there.

  • Really!?

    So to be clear, you’re admitting that’s you having sex with a goat and you define a “real man” as one who rapes animals (we know you pray to a man who raped a little girl). Got it. First line of defense, a zoo.
