Settlers to Netanyahu: If you want our votes, apply sovereignty now

Settlers and right-wing activists warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he would lose votes for the March 2 election unless he applied sovereignty to the West Bank settlements now.
"If you want the support of the Right – act like you are the leader of the Right,” Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan said as he addressed a rally of several thousand that was held on the street outside Netanyahu’s Jerusalem residence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion piece on this issue, at rt.com, with the following headline; US envoy warns Washington could pull support as Israel unilaterally starts drawing map for West Bank annexations

The story goes on to state: "Unilateral action by Israel to annex land in the West Bank would endanger US support for a proposed blueprint for the region, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has said.
“Israel is subject to the completion [of] a mapping process by a joint Israeli-American committee. Any unilateral action in advance of the completion of the committee process endangers the Plan & American recognition,” Friedman said, in a message posted on Twitter."

I would strongly suggest, that this article is only for the consumption of Middle Eastern countries' leadership, to make it appear that the US will pull support, if Tel Aviv goes ahead with this prior to the 2 March elections.

I would also politely suggest, that the US really has no intention of going ahead with pulling support from Israel on this issue, if Netanyahu feels that his hand is forced, and he does this to appease these settlers, pre-election.
