West Bank settlements must be annexed, says Benjamin Netanyahu

as Israeli government sworn in

Benjamin Netanyahu reaffirmed his vow to annex West Bank settlements on Sunday as his emergency unity government with chief rival, Benny Gantz, was sworn in just a week before his corruption trial is due to start.

Mr Netanyahu’s long-held desire to annex the territories, also held by Donald Trump, the US president, will lead to a collision with Palestinians and a host of other countries, and is seen as the end for hopes of a Palestinian state.

“The time has come to apply Israeli law to them and write another glorious chapter in Zionist history,” Mr Netanyahu said at the swearing-in ceremony.

The agreement allows Mr Netanyahu to present a proposal for annexation as soon as July 1. Getting annexation through before US presidential elections in November will likely be a priority for him as presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has unilaterally opposed the plans.

1. Now I get it

Jared was put in charge to end the Israel-Palestine problem.

We just assumed that meant to come to a peaceful resolution like every other world leader in the last 70 years.

Turns out the goal was just to declare victory and move on with the Israelis taking what they wanted.

I guess considering whether Jared failed depends on what the goals were all along.

I would say we were back to square one except that I think we have regressed farther than that.
