Netanyahu vows to annex Jordan Valley, West Bank settlements if elected

While he promises to annex all settlements after he’s re-elected, Netanyahu makes another one:

“One place that can have sovereignty immediately applied to it after the elections is the Jordan Valley. The next government will apply Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley.”

He then asks for Israelis’ votes.

“This is a democracy. I won’t do anything without a clear mandate. So I’m asking for a mandate, to do this thing that enjoys a broad consensus, to define at long last Israel’s permanent borders, promising that Judea and Samaria don’t turn into Gaza.

“This map defines our eastern frontier. We haven’t had this kind of opportunity since the [1967] Six Day War, and may not have it against for another 50 years.”

“We are on the eve of the elections. President Trump said he will present his Deal of the Century few days after the election and it is just around the corner. This presents us with a great challenge and a great opportunity to apply Israeli sovereignty to Judea and Samaria and other areas,” Netanyahu said.

“This will be our defensive belt to the east. It ensures that we will never be a country a few miles wide,” Netanyahu said.
