Right calls for annexation in response to PM comments on unilateralism

Ministers in the security cabinet called for Israel to unilaterally annex Israeli settlements in the West Bank Wednesday, in response to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments that Israel could take unilateral action.

Responding to questions about the peace process at the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America in Washington D.C. Tuesday, Netanyahu said a negotiated peace deal would be better than unilateral steps by Israel to impose a solution to the conflict. But he indicated a unilateral approach might be possible under the right conditions.

"Unilateralism … I suppose that’s possible, too, but it would have to meet Israeli security criteria and that would also require, I think, a broader international understanding than exists now," Netanyahu said.
