Netanyahu Vows to Annex West Bank, Never Allow Palestinian State, If Reelected

Netanyahu Vows to Annex West Bank, Never Allow Palestinian State, If Reelected

He also has a close relation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is seeking re-election Tuesday.

He made the comments during an appearance on Israel's Channel 13 television. "Two good people", he said, referring to incumbent Benjamin Netanyahu and rival Benny Gantz. I will impose sovereignty, but I will not distinguish between settlement...

Settlements built on land occupied by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War are deemed illegal by the global community and their ongoing construction is seen as a major barrier to peace in the Middle East.

"Trump's presidency has only solidified the fact that the Democratic Party has been - and will remain - the political home of the American Jewish electorate", JDCA Executive Director Halie Soifer said in a statement. "Israel will continue to brazenly violate worldwide law for as long as the global community will continue to reward Israel with impunity, particularly with the Trump administration's support and endorsement of Israel's violation of the national and human rights of the people of Palestine".

The Republican says America should tell Israel's enemies that if they seek "to destroy the one and only Jewish state, you have to come through us to get them".

After decades of settlement building, more than 400,000 Israelis now live in the West Bank, protected by an Israeli military presence that divides some Palestinian communities and cuts off towns and villages with checkpoints.

Netanyahu has promoted Jewish settlement expansion in his four terms as prime minister, but until now refrained from presenting a detailed vision for the West Bank, viewed by Palestinians as the heartland of a future state.

We haven't heard much about Apple Watch Series 5 , but it isn't expected to deliver a major design change. The sources said the supply deal would mark Japan Display's foray into the OLED display market.

When Trump asked the crowd who they thought would win, they replied with cheers of "Bibi", Netanyahu's nickname. "Oh, oh, oh I forgot, she doesn't like Israel, I forgot, I'm so sorry". Both moves delighted Israel, infuriated Palestinian and Arab leaders, and were opposed by most US allies.

Trump has teased the long-promised US peace proposal as the "deal of the century", but it will undoubtedly be as Netanyahu-sided as everything else the Trump administration has done when it comes to Israel.

Trump was called out for doing so by many users on social media, and for making other references toward the organization suggesting they held "dual loyalties" to American and Israeli interests.

How does Trump see the election: "I think it's going to be close".

On Friday, the last day polling is allowed, Gantz's centrist Blue and White party was projected to take 30 seats, more than the 26 forecast for Netanyahu's right-wing Likud, according to a poll in the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.

Citing a law passed past year declaring Israel the nation state of the Jewish people, he said recently the country was "not a state of all its citizens". Norm Coleman, R-Minn., the chairman of the RJC, led the audience in an adapted version of the Passover reading "Dayenu", as he recounted what Trump had done for Israel.
