U.S. Ambassador: Israel Has Right to Annex West Bank

"If Prime Minster Netanyahu makes good on his threat to annex West Bank settlements, he should know that a President Buttigieg would take steps to ensure that American tax payers won't help foot the bill", threatened the presidential hopeful.

David Friedman is a "trojan horse of the settler right", the Peace Now movement hit back after The New York Times published his comments on the West Bank. In a tweet emphasizing this distinction, J Street Jeremy Ben-Ami wrote, "Here's what Pete Buttigieg did say: He'd ensure United States taxpayers don't fund West Bank annexation".

"The administration's position on the settlements has not changed".

No casualties were reported on the Israeli side.

During the recent election campaign, Benjamin Netanyahu floated the idea that he would extend Jewish sovereignty over certain parts of Judea and Samaria, otherwise known as the West Bank. In 2004, George W. Bush wrote to then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that it is "unrealistic" to expect that a peace deal will remove Israel from all areas it gained in the Six-Day War.

Israeli soldiers have shot and injured a Palestinian security officer in the occupied West Bank after reportedly accidentally identifying the security force as "suspects". "All talks, official and unofficial, since Camp David of 2000, have used the 1967 borders as the basis", she said.

"We do trust Poland...but we can not trust the current USA administration after what it did against the Palestinians", al-Maliki said. And he's also right that the United States is not opposed to Israel's holding on to at least some of the West Bank in the event of a theoretical peace agreement that the Palestinians clearly have no interest in negotiating, let alone signing.

Shoval argued that Friedman "left it open" regarding whether he saw Israel controlling parts of the West Bank long-term as the result of a negotiated deal or annexation. But even if he meant the latter, claimed Shoval, this isn't as controversial as people think.

The White House will present the first part of US President Donald Trump's Israeli-Palestinian peace plan when it holds an global conference in Bahrain in late June to encourage investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
