IDF to close West Bank, Gaza crossings to Palestinians on election day

If Netanyahu is tapped by Rivlin to build a coalition and is successful in doing so he would break David Ben-Gurion's record (13 years) as longest serving Prime Minister.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged Saturday to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank if he wins the upcoming general election.

More than 400,000 Israelis live in West Bank settlements as part of its military occupation of the territory, while a further 200,000 live in settlements in occupied East Jerusalem, which Israel has annexed in a move never recognised by the worldwide government.

"The question you are asking is an interesting question, whether we will move to the next stage and the answer is yes", he said.

If such a measure is tabled, Israel would pull out of Washington's plan according to Netanyahu.

He said in an interview with Israeli television: "We will ensure that we are in charge on the ground".

"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 won't uproot anyone, and I won't place them under Palestinian sovereignty.

The move by the oil-rich sultanate has also been met with calls for boycotts of luxury hotels owned by Brunei . Over in America, Ellen DeGeneres and George Clooney are calling for a boycott of Brunei-owned hotels.

During the interview, Netanyahu depicted the US policy shifts on Jerusalem and the Golan Heights as his achievements, saying that he had managed to persuade President Trump to take these steps. The annexation of parts of the West Bank would likely be considered the final blow to the possibility of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Palestinian negotiators have boycotted contact with the Trump administration since it, in another break with longtime policy, moved the US embassy to Jerusalem and recognized the city as the country's capital, enraging Palestinians, who also consider the city their capital. As a result, the Palestinians, who seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as their capital, stopped contact with the U.S.

Graham also suggested the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate would vote in a month or so to formally recognize Israeli sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights and force Democrats to go on the record on the issue.

Patrick Carlineo Jr., the man charged with threatening Omar, allegedly called the lawmaker a "terrorist" and vowed to put a "bullet in her [expletive] skull" in a phone call with a member of her Washington staff, according to a statement Friday by the US attorney's office for the Western District of NY.

His appearance at the Republican Jewish Coalition nearly a month after Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar came under sharp scrutiny for accusing pro-Israel lawmakers of serving "allegiance to a foreign country." .

"The only reason it's even credible now is because of what he's been able to coordinate with Trump", said Lipner, speaking of President Donald Trump. Israel liberated these areas from Jordan 52 years ago in the 1967 Six Day War.

"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said in the aftermath of the event, which included throngs of white nationalists changting things like "Jews will not replace us".
