Hotovely Calls for Israel to Annex Judea & Samaria


Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely stated Wednesday that Israel should adopt the findings of the Levy Report as a response to the Palestinian Authority's bid for official statehood at the United Nations.

"This is a political opportunity for Israel to respond to their unilateral move with our unilateral move. The first step is to adopt the Levy Report and the second step is to apply multilevel sovereignty in Judea and Samaria."

Judea and Samaria were restored to Israel in 1967. The government sanctioned Levy Report declared Jewish communities in the districts that were reestablished after 1967 to be legal under international law.
