Coordinated with the Israeli PM, earlier this year Trump published its Israeli – Palestinian “peace” plan. It recognizes Israeli sovereignty over all settlements and nearly all of East Jerusalem. Israeli PM Netanyahu obliged to bring to the Knesset approval on 1 July.
Israeli peace activists work to prevent, limit or postpone the annexation. So do concerned West European and Arab governments and the UN. Heavy pressure is put on Israeli government, and itmay lead to limit the annexed land size to area close to Jerusalem.
It should be noted that any size of the planned annexation is actually replacing the title not the system. Annexation discloses Israel’s true intention: occupation is not temporary as its representative used to claim internationally. Anyone who study who rules on which area and who permits or forbids Palestinian ordinary life matters, find out that Israel puts heavy iron chains on the Palestinian Authority. De-facto the Palestinian natives are annexed to Israel, not just the settlers. The de-facto annexation created a de-facto Jewish apartheid.
De-jure annexation provides Israel with legal tools to confiscate Palestinian land and expand settlements without international law of occupation limits that Israeli High Court have kept through the years in the West Bank. Palestinians caught in those enclaved without land and legal protection will face the threat of deportation or force to leave.
It is not enough limiting the size of the planned de-jure annexation or postponing it. Needed turning back the wheel of de-facto annexation and topple the one regime that Israel already created in the area between Jordan and the Mediterranean. With Israel revealing its true aim and removing the mask of temporary occupation, the international community should aim ending the Jewish apartheid regime.
