MK Ariel Proposes Annexing All of Judea & Samaria
Member of Knesset Uri Ariel called for a full annexation of Judea and Samaria to Israel. Ariel stated that although "this option sounds scary", Israel should not be afraid of Arab residents of Judea and Samaria becoming full voting citizens. He proposed that the annexation would be coupled with dividing Israel into voting districts. Unlike the of Heights and east-side neighborhoods of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria has never been officially incorporated into the State of Israel. The region is run by the IDF Civil Administration.
