Elkin: There is No Escaping Annexation


MK Ze’ev Elkin (Likud), chairman of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, on Sunday called for Israel to annex parts of Judea and Samaria.

Elkin’s call came in a speech at the Institute of National Security Studies think-tank in Tel Aviv. He was responding to INSS chairman Amos Yadlin, who presented a plan for Israel to withdraw from Judea and Samaria, similar to the “Disengagement” from Gaza.
