Bennett Asks Netanyahu to Annex Large Jewish Settlements

It won’t happen so soon, but it is only a matter of time until Jewish in Efrat finally can be like Jews in Tel Aviv.

Jewish Home party chairman Naftali Bennett announced Wednesday night that he is urging Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in writing to annex large Jewish population centers in Judea and Samaria and take them out of the status of “military rule.”

He explained his timing is directly related to the  Palestinian Authority’s “new record of extortion” throughout nearly nine months of “negotiations” that have been nothing more than drawn out period of demands in return for Israel’s sitting down to hear more demands.

“The Palestinians broke the principles of negotiations and applied for membership” in U.N. agencies, Bennett wrote, adding that the Palestinian Authority continues to incite for the murder of Jews.

“We  have been beating our heads against the wall repeatedly during negotiations – and not surprisingly the wall is not broken,” Bennett continued.

His proposal would place Gush Etzion, which includes Efrat, Neve Daniel, Elazar, Beitar Illit and several kibbutzim under Israeli sovereignty, as Israel did in 1980 when it annexed areas of Jerusalem that were restored to the country in the Six-Day War in 19767. Similar, Israel annexed the Golan Heights.

Almost all foreign media and foreign governments refer to the areas as “occupied.”

The city of Ariel, in central Samaria, Beit El in northern Samaria, and Ma’aleh Adumim, east of Jerusalem, also would be annexed under Bennett’s plan.

“It is clear that the current process has run its course and we are entering a new era,” Bennett stated.

Momentum for placing the large population enters of Jews under Israeli sovereignty has been building up for at least two years.

Last year, a government-appointed commission of three legal experts, including retired Supreme Court Justice Edmund Levy, concluded that Israel is not an “occupier” and that Jews have the right to live anywhere in Judea and Samaria under international law.

Prime Minister Netanyahu shelved the report, but the recent collapse of the illusion of trust between the  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Mahmoud Abbas and the Israeli government has opened the way for both the Palestinian Authority and Israeli to stake out claims.

Abbas already  has said he will ask for membership in U.N. agencies , with an eye on the International Court, where he wants to file “war crimes” claims against Israel.

  1. Great. That is HaShem words, gather us and give our land back.
    That land belongs to the Almighty we are the keepers. It should be forbidden to give His Sacred Land.

  8. Perfect idea in response from negative talk and backlash from Kerry and Abbas. Israel is ours. Stop giving and giving. You will get nothing from the PA. THE OFFERED NOTHING!!!!!

  9. Jacques Daniel. Bennett is hundred per cent in the right. The Palestinians hate the Jews, teach the children to Hate and even to kill them. If You give them all of Israel they will tell you to go back from where you came. You are settlers. Mr. John Kerry is doing what pleases Obama, and Obama is trying to please the Arabs; since he came to be president he said Israel must go the 1967 Borders. So, Listen to Bennett Mr. Netanyahu .

  10. Good for Bennet,wake up Netanyahu !!!!!!
