Annexation of West Bank that a’historic mistake’ — Middle East Monitor


Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni maintained on Friday the Israeli annexation of large areas of the occupied West Bank is a”enormous historic error”, CNN reported.

A few days before, Livni informed The Washington Post that:”Israel is going to create one of the most fateful choices in its history — a choice which will have a deep effect on its potential as a Jewish democratic country and about the prospect of peace.”

She added:”The Israeli cabinet is on the point of unilaterally annexing lands in the West Bank.”

“This isn’t a technical matter. It’s a question which has an immediate bearing on the nature of the nation of Israel — its own individuality, its own values and its potential.”

Livni expressed her belief in the calm and secure coexistence with the Palestinians, stressing that the annexation would undermine this.

“It isn’t a massive error for Israel alone, but also for the Palestinians, also.”
