MK Hotovely: We Don't Need World's Permission to Annex


Deputy Minister MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud Beytenu) spoke out in favor of annexing portions of Judea and Samaria on Wednesday. In response to a bill by MK Yehiel Bar (Labor) against the annexation of Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley, MK Hotovely replied, "the Government of Israel annexed eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights without requesting permission from the world. Israeli legislature is sovereign and can decide on the principles of the issue, and the integrity of the land. Any attempt to reduce the right of a committee is an anti-democratic process."
