Netanyahu Says Annexation Of West Bank To Happen By July 1st In "Historic Opportunity"

Click to see full-size image

On May 25th, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to annex parts of the West Bank in the coming months.

He said that the plan was to do so in by July 1st, and that there were no plans to delay it any further.

Netanyahu said that Israel will not miss what he called a “historic opportunity” to extend its sovereignty to Palestinian lands, calling the move one of his newly sworn-in government’s top priorities.

“We have an opportunity that hasn’t existed since 1948 to apply sovereignty in a wise way and as a diplomatic step in Judea and Samaria, and we will not let this opportunity pass,” the PM said, referring to the year Israel was established and using the biblical names for the West Bank.

“We have a target date in July to apply sovereignty and we will not change it,” Netanyahu later told the gathered member of Knesset (Parliament), during a part of the meeting that was closed to media, Israeli media reported.

Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, has been lobbying American officials in recent weeks to back annexation, fearing that the plan could be derailed if Joe Biden wins the presidency in November.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said last week that the Palestinian Authority considers itself free of all agreements and understandings with both Israel and the U.S. — including on security matters — because of Israel’s annexation plans.

On the US side, the White House and the US Department of State said that the deadline provided by Netanyahu isn’t “sacred” and that annexation would be supported by Washington only if it was in the framework of Palestinian-Israeli peace talks.

Still, the move follows US President Donald Trump’s “Deal of the century.”

The deal essentially lets Israel impose sovereignty all the way to Jordan while Palestinians are granted a disjointed and demilitarised entity. The Palestinian state’s capital would be on the outskirts of Jerusalem, the disputed city that would remain fully under Israeli sovereignty.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rejected Israel’s plans and gave his support to Palestinians in a video statement to U.S. Muslims on Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

“We will not allow the Palestinian lands to be offered to anyone else. I would like to reiterate that Al Quds Al-Sharif, the holy site of three religions and our first kiblah, is a red line for all Muslims in the world,” Erdogan said, referring to Jerusalem by its Arabic name.

The EU’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, has said annexation would violate international law and vowed to use “all our diplomatic capacities” to stop it.

Saudi Arabia, which formally has no relations with Israel, and it’s an open secret that Riyadh and Tel’Aviv coordinate in many fields, announced its “rejection of the Israeli measures and plans to annex Palestinian lands.”

The Arab League has condemned it as a “war crime,” and both Jordan and Egypt, the only two Arab countries at peace with Israel, have harshly criticized it.

The envoys from the UK, Germany, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Finland and the EU issued a formal objection to the Foreign Ministry against the move.

“We are very concerned about the clause in the coalition agreement that paves the way for annexing parts of the West Bank. The annexation of any part of the West Bank constitutes a clear violation of international law,” the ambassadors said. “Such unilateral steps will harm efforts to renew the peace process and will have grave consequences for regional stability and for Israel’s standing in the international arena.”

    Zionist cunts are criminals by historical context and these parasites are hoping that their Americunt idiots will support them and force the puppet regimes in Egypt, Jordan, UAE and the Saudi whores to accept the wholesale theft of Palestine. This is not going to work out as resistance against Zionist cancer is now at a grassroots level throughout the region and even globally.

    I hate that corrupted pig, but if he can do one good thing and annex it then we might remember him after he’s gone.

      no he just trying to save his ass from the slammer, since circus tricks over did fuck all for damage.
      You now gantz would have just took the whole thing right.

      you also want to add weakenimg the defenses of the state by selling weapons to turkey canceling defense research projects so he give money to all the other ogres in the swamp.

    • Free man

      In my opinion, unilateral annexation would be a mistake on Israel’s part, and the United States will not allow it .
      On the other hand, I always thought that Netanyahu was wrong and that he is bad for Israel. But in practice, Israel is only getting stronger in every possible aspect.

        The thing is, the Jordan Valley is our border with Jordan and we can not let it be under a Palestinian control. I’d support annexing it and give them other land in return, to make it equal.

  • Ashok Varma

    So-called Israel is a corrupt criminal entity and digging its own grave, just like its Nazi and Apartheid role models. Palestine is eternal, while Zionism like other ideologies of hate and deceit is only 70 years old based on a totally fake narrative and universally despised.

    Here is a fascinating look at how Israel controls the Palestinian narrative:

    https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2019/12/how-israel-controls-palestinian.html

    By attacking and otherwise threatening Palestinian journalists, Israel can, to some degree, impact the media coverage of its aggressive actions against the residents of the West Bank and Gaza.

      Thats both ways. The last one tryed to make symåhaty was 3 guies putting a road side bomb out.

      One of them was brutally shot and we should feel pity for that poor poor little boy.

      Parents probatly was happy and went home smiling to make another no socalled victim because a corner of the carpet now was vacant.

      So yes, You are right. There are a lot of very much manipulated dorty journalisme. I repeat my point of You even its a waste, for both of You are robots and Ihave seen the same cirkus since I remember.

      One has to wonder if the U.S. military has any contingency to annex Israel and if it represents a historical opportunity to stabilize the Middle East.

    At least democracy will finally be implemented in the west bank !!!

    • good american

    Whose side are US Muslims on if an Authoritarian leader in Erdogan is appealing to them. The US should ban all Muslim immigration !!!

    • good american

      Maybe they should kick out anyone connected to the Israelis while they are at it? Within the US, the Muslims cause much less trouble.

      • Jens Holm

        The real trouble are in white americans mind and very cvisble, when they random shoot black people and even the police does it.

        Often not even good videos with sound is enough.

        Corrections both ways are needed.

    • Concrete Mike

      If you aint a native american, you have no say to who can immigrate there. You stupid anglo, your an immigrant too ya know.

      • Jens Holm

        Of course You have. If You are not an american Yourself, then shut up Yourself.

    • Jens Holm

      Millions of people emmigrated to USA because of religious freedom and any even selfconstructed religion can be accepted.

      So as long as they keep it that way and follow the American Constitution, they are welcome.

      I do understand Your concern. USA in periods has had limits for who and how many. Its a possibility, You can work for inside the Constitution.

      As a dane I am not like that. An estimate of mine says 50% of the incomming muslims are fine people and integrate well or des it in next or next generation. The problems are, we cant see who is who.

      Fx we cant rely on courtsystems from where they come from, so we cant say no or yes. For the moment we take no incommers being muslims part from already being European muslims for marrige with danes(danish muslims).

      I can give one advice for the muslims already in USA. We have translated the Choran to Danish the best we can in a modern and a traditionel version. We see muslims now as minimum get their rights and responsabilities given by Allah not living in Alabama.

      Its about Sunni. In Sunni You as other parents and families raise Your children, so they can make a living, where they actually lives.

      So being raised as if USA is Syria or Nigeria is a no go.

      We have done the same thing as we did with the Christianity 500 years ago. At that time all religion was in Latin and Greek, so the normal dane did not understand.

      We also made more and more low grade schools, so all actually could read themselves, what was written.

      I would say it has helped us very much in moderate changes a little by little instead of uprises and many communists as well as nazis. We also has other kinds of Unions then USA and has had no MCarthy and FBI hardlining.

      So I can recommend You working for incommers learn to speak American fast, so they can read and understand whats semilar and different in USA.

      It works here. Many muslim women are in the streets alone. They educate and many of them can take jobs were men are too. There are more trust children and Young ones being raised as responsible and less control.

      But as You write, we do have the same problems as You. But we are able to reduce them. I see eduucation as an investmen. Instead of poor having no jobs, they get taxpayers as most of the rest of us.

    • Wayne Nicholson

      Just to be clear the crime here is to simply be appealed to?

      So does that mean when Benjamin Netanyahu appealed to American Jews to oppose the Iran deal a few years back that jewish Americans banned from immigrating as well?

      Perhaps you should only accept deaf and blind immigrants to keep America safe from appeals.

  • Jens Holm

    The Israeliens for good reasons dont care a thing about Your writings, so Your writings here as maximum confirm Netanayhuhuh in their intensions.

    You are like many many little coks cokkily cooking all the time, so none can see, if there even is a brain and a unity behind it – or You just use them as scapegoats.

    Much like they prefare hens. They lay eggs and after some cooking also taste better.

    As written before: Yopu cant even read the Choran. You dont go to school learning normal things. If You edicate You are in the old days. Skills and hard work is noit rewarded but being noce to Your Grandparents are.

    Your women are kept even more stupid then Yourself even they are just as clever as You. That cant even be debated being haram and a part of old mens culture. When men do a job they get a car. When women do the same job as men, they get a mobilphone or flowers in their behinds.

    So as long as You remain as You do, there are 100 of Your kind to knock out for 1 Israelian.

    You have choosen Your dark Yourself and insist. The same for Your babling about deep deep state. You make it Yourself by Yourself and well supported by leaders of Your own kind.

    Thats one thing. The other is, Ypu blame the rest of the world and hope for fiaco for, how we as westerns are incl. Jews. The reasons are very simple: You deny to adapt even simple things for own improvements.

    In these days You even burn away own cornfields and by that deny Yourself even wheat for bread. What kind of people are You. Most Syrians are killed by Syrians and Assads for the last decades. By that Ypu have succes being unproductive stupidists.

    A personal comment is, that Islam rules from Marocco to Indonesia and all the way down to Nigeria and Mocambiqe,so I wonder if some little dot like Israel can make You so angry.

    Much as if Islam was a car and a tire exploded, You next day would be hindus, jews or buddists.

    Instead of wasting money on building the world’s tallest buildings and pure wastage of oil money on extravagant city-sized shopping malls and large palm islands that now stand empty because of the virus, the oil-rich nations could have used that money to house and feed the Palestinian people, but they didn’t.

    Syria took in some of the Palestinians and the Liwa Al-Quds proved to be a critical force in covering the SAA’s rear end in Aleppo while they took back the desert west of Deir Ezzor.

    Russia taking back their land after a 100 years with a majority Russian population whom were threatened by CIAnazis is bad according to the U.S.
    Israel taking back land after 2000 years with no majority and minimal threat is the best thing since the invention of sliced bread.
