Netanyahu’s Proposed West Bank Annexation Is Logical End to Israel’s Apartheid Policy

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing worldwide condemnation for vowing to annex nearly a third of the occupied West Bank.

This will only happen if he wins next week’s snap election.

The United Nations, the Arab League, the European Union, and Russia have all criticized Netanyahu’s plan.

He unveiled his plan last Tuesday.

Netanyahu’s pledge comes just a week before Israeli voters return to the polls on Tuesday for new elections after Netanyahu failed to form a coalition government following Israel’s April 9 election.

Netanyahu’s annexation plan would crush hopes of an eventual Palestinian state.
