Netanyahu blames US for his decision to not annex West Bank settlements now

NOTE: This was written before the breaking news yesterday about what Israel is getting—peace with many Arab states—for halting annexation.

With speculation high that Israel might be facing new elections soon, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu placed the blame on the United States for his failure to annex West Bank settlements.

U.S. President Donald Trump is busy with other things, “and this is not on the top of his mind,” Netanyahu said during an interview this week with Israel’s Channel 20.

“It was clear from the start that the application of sovereignty would be done only with agreement from the United States. Otherwise, I would have already done it a while ago,” Netanyahu said.

Right-wingers want Netanyahu to declare sovereignty over portions of the West Bank, but believe the American peace plan doesn’t go far enough. Palestinians have flat out rejected the American peace plan and any talk of annexation, saying the plan heavily favors Israeli interests.

Meanwhile, Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan met with Evangelical leaders by Zoom, to talk about the importance of extending Israeli sovereignty in the West Bank. Leaders taking part in the call were from Madagascar, Ethiopia, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, South Sudan, Congo, Nigeria and Ghana.

“If you help with the application of sovereignty over all our communities, you will be remembered as being on the right side of history,” Dagan said.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
