"For the past 10 years, Netanyahu has blocked applying Israeli law to even a centimeter of land", Bennett tweeted. The global community does not recognize the annexation and believes the status of Jerusalem and the West Bank settlements requires mutual agreement with the Palestinians. Israel has annexed east Jerusalem and withdrawn from Gaza. The answer is yes. He continued, "We will move to the next stage, the imposing of Israeli sovereignty".

"I will impose sovereignty, but I will not distinguish between settlement blocs and isolated settlements", he continued, The Associated Press reports.

Israelis head to the polls on Tuesday to elect a new government. "I will not uproot anyone, and I will not transfer sovereignty to the Palestinians".

Graham said at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas Saturday that it's time for the U.S.to declare to the world how important its relationship is with Israel. Give me a little history, quick.

He said Israel can not expel the Palestinians, adding, "The global community has to deal with us".

Taking Netanyahu at his word, Palestinians seeking statehood in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem called his settlement annexation remarks a violation of global law regarding occupied territory. But Israel has so far stopped short of formally annexing the West Bank, leaving the door open for further negotiations with Palestinians. The West Bank is home to some 2.9 million Palestinians, the Palestinian Statistics Bureau says.

Most peace plan scenarios foresee Israel negotiating to keep some settlements in return for giving other land to the Palestinians. More than 600,000 Israelis now live on the war-won lands, the majority live in the West Bank.

President Trump Takes Aim At Mueller AGAIN As Report Release Draws Near
The department said those summaries include secret grand jury information that can not under law be made public. Many Democrats and legal observers see Barr as an improper actor in the handling of the Mueller report.

"Such a statement by Netanyahu is not surprising", Erekat said on Twitter.

The Palestinians say the United States government's pro-Israel bias meant it could no longer lead peace negotiations between them and Israel, while USA officials argue their plan will be fair.

How does Trump see the election: "I think it's going to be close".

The move, which would be a sharp departure from long-standing Israeli government policy, was promised on in a television interview Saturday (local time).

During a speech at a Republican Jewish Coalition event on Saturday, Trump touted his own supposedly pro-Israel record as president by telling the assembled Republicans that "I stood with your prime minister at the White House to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights", according to The Jerusalem Post. Netanyahu portrayed the USA policy shifts on Jerusalem and the Golan Heights as his achievements, saying he had managed to persuade Trump to take these steps.

Weil, who wore a blue Trump-style hat that read, "Making Israel & America Great Again", says he's a Republican because of the party's strong stance on Israel.
