YNET calls says annexation is foolish but makes a weak case. Four Likud cabinet members supported the idea but were extremely cautious in their remarks. Rest assured that they got Netanyahu’s consent to their participation in the Annexation/Sovereignty Conference and to their very cautious remarks. This leftist article attempts to ridicule annexation to make it appear non viable. Ted Belman
Op-ed: Electoral threat from Bennett causing Likud to come up with ludicrous ideas
Yoaz Hendel, YNET
The idea of annexing the territories has been living among us for 45 years. No rightist government has ever implemented it, and no leftist government has ever rejected it. In December 1981, six months after the withdrawal from Sinai, Menachem Begin tried to define the border. He annexed the Golan Heights and drew harsh criticism from the world. Reagan’s America created a crisis, but it is in the nature of crises to end. The Golan Heights, however, remained annexed with a clear border.
