Likud members call for Israeli annexation of West Bank territories

Source: Guardian

Prominent members of Israel's ruling Likud party have proposed the annexation of part of the West Bank as the battle for rightwing votes intensifies before the general election in less than three weeks.

Government minister Yuli Edelstein told a conference in Jerusalem that the lack of Israeli sovereignty over Area C the 60% of the West Bank under full Israeli military control in which all settlements are situated "strengthens the international community's demand for a withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines".

Ze'ev Elkin, the chairman of the governing coalition, said Israel should adopt a "salami" approach to annexation. "We will try to apply sovereignty over as much as we can at any given moment," he said.

A third Likud member, extreme rightwing settler Moshe Feiglin, proposed that the state of Israel should pay Palestinian families to leave the West Bank, using funds earmarked for security measures. "We can give every family in Judea and Samaria $500,000 to encourage to emigrate This is the perfect solution for us," he said.

4. "Likud-Beiteinu is extreme right wing, and will lead to the destruction of Zionism"

Well said, Ms. Livni.

The sad thing is that this woman won the popular vote, and she should be the current PM, not Netanyahu.
