US official: No discussion of West Bank annexation

“No plan for unilateral annexation by Israel of any portion of the West Bank has been presented by Israel to the US, nor is it under discussion,” said a US official, speaking on condition of anonymity Saturday night. He was responding to remarks in an interview by David Friedman, US Ambassador: “Under certain circumstances, I think Israel has the right to retain some, but unlikely all, of the West Bank.,” he said. The Trump peace plan, he added, was aimed at improving the quality of life for Palestinians but was unlikely to lead quickly to a “permanent resolution to the conflict.”

    The yanks flip flopping confuses everyone again. Non of this helps anything at all. They should just shut up and say what the actual “beautiful peace plan” they keep harping on about is. All this indicates that Trump’s “plan” is dead before arrival so now they’re just throwing out haphazard and half baked ideas and then argue about these among themselves.

    In the beginning there were three areas too many, A, B, and C; and there was no peace plan.
    Then, Netanyahu said “Let all jokes with palestine come to an end!”
