Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says he is ‘confident’ US will support West Bank annexation

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said he was “confident” he will be able to annex large parts of the occupied West Bank this summer, with support from the US.

Speaking to an online gathering of evangelical Christian supporters of Israel, Netanyahu said President Donald Trump’s Mideast plan envisions turning over Israel’s dozens of settlements, as well as the strategic Jordan Valley, to Israeli control.

“A couple of months from now, I’m confident that that pledge will be honoured, that we will be able to celebrate another historic moment in the history of Zionism,” Netanyahu said.

Israeli annexation of West Bank territory would be highly controversial, drawing widespread international condemnations and extinguishing any lingering hopes of establishing a viable independent Palestinian state alongside Israel

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This takeover will be viewed as a "clear and present danger" to any hope of a viable peace in the Middle East; unfortunately, President Trump is so "enraptured" with this particular BFF in the Middle East, that he most probably will not even whisper a hint of concern when it happens.
