Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu vows to annex West Bank settlements if re-elected

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu vows to annex West Bank settlements if re-elected

As he seeks to become Israel's longest-serving prime minister, Netanyahu has played up his ties to Trump, who has all but formally endorsed the Israeli leader ahead of Tuesday's election. "Oh, I forgot. She doesn't like Israel". Why are you working for her, she's a [expletive] terrorist.

A spokesman for Omar did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump's remarks.

Trump has teased the long-promised US peace proposal as the "deal of the century", but it will undoubtedly be as Netanyahu-sided as everything else the Trump administration has done when it comes to Israel. "The president will pick up the phone and we'll take it from there", he said. "You also had some very fine people on both sides".

US President Donald Trump struck a cautious tone Saturday about the outcome of Israel's parliamentary vote, saying there is a "close" race for the premiership between "two good people".

Last month, Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which Israel seized from Syria in 1967.

The Palestinians and many countries consider this to be illegal under the Geneva conventions that bar settling on land captured in war.

As part of the decision, 1,226 homes were reportedly cleared with final approval for construction even before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he plans to extend Israeli sovereignty to all Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria if he succeeds in elections scheduled to take place this week.

Her department has been responsible for carrying out some of Mr Trump's most contentious policies, such as his plan to build a Mexico border wall and the separation of migrant children from their families. Also, better late than never. Adelson has cancer and has been in poor health, but he and his wife attended Trump's remarks - receiving a standing ovation when they entered the ballroom. But if it became clear it's not in the cards right now, then he can just say, 'Sorry, I can't swing it. The rest of the crowd quickly drowned them out with chants of "USA! They wanted to destroy Israel".

"I will impose sovereignty, but I will not distinguish between settlement blocs and isolated settlements", he said.

Trump says in a speech at the group's annual meeting in Las Vegas that he's grateful to members for "your incredible support and your outstanding commitment to our country to our safety and to electing more Republicans". A handful of attendees were holding signs reading, "We Are Jews For Trump" and "Thank You President Trump".

Such dual loyalty comments are seen as promoting an anti-Semitic trope, one that Trump himself condemned when he recently accused a Democratic lawmaker of doing the same thing.

Former Republican National Committee chairman and casino mogul Steve Wynn met with President Donald Trump at the Las Vegas airport following the president's speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition on Saturday.
