Israeli Minister Naftali Bennett reiterated his request that the occupied West Bank be formally annexed, speaking Monday night at an event organized by the pro-settlement news site Arutz Sheva.
Minister of Education and Minister of Diaspora Affairs Bennett declared that Israel has "a very rare opportunity now," referring to US President Donald Trump.
â € œ [There is] a president who thinks differently, who thinks openly, â € Bennett told the audience, according to Palestine Days.
â € œIt is not enough to move the embassy to Jerusalem. 50 years have passed since we liberated Judea and Samaria [the West Bank]. It is time to recognize them as Israel. It is time for sovereignty, "he added, using the term that Israeli law often uses to refer to annexation.
Describing himself, in his capacity as Minister of Diaspora Affairs, as" effectively the Minister of the Jews ", Bennett said:" We have to understand that the Jewish state is not only the state of the Israeli citizen, it is a state where every Jew in the world has a stake here. "
