Knesset to vote on annexing the West Bank

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- The Knesset will vote on a bill calling for full Israeli
annexation of the West Bank.

Deputy Speaker Danny Danon announced Tuesday that the Knesset will take up
the bill, which he authored, at the end of October.

The bill also nullifies any financial obligations between Israel and the
Palestinian Authority that had been established by previous agreements,
according to a statement from Danon's office.

“If the Palestinian Authority wishes to proceed on this reckless path and
bring further instability to the region, Israel cannot continue to pour
funds into this sinking ship of failed leadership,” Danon said, referring
to the PA's statehood bid at the United Nations last Friday.

“The funding agreements with the PA were reached with the hope that their
leaders would work to create an environment of lasting peace and security
with Israel. Given that it is clear that the Palestinians have no such
desire, Israel must no longer be required to stand by these arrangements.”

The bill also nullifies the Oslo Accords, since it reads that “All
obligations between the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority as
established by international agreements … will be considered null and

The letter also calls for additional sanctions against the Palestinians and
not allowing any country that cooperates with their statehood bid to
mediate future peace talks.
