TEL AVIV: A coalition of liberal American Jewish groups has sent a letter to leaders of Zionist political parties, warning them against full or partial annexation of the occupied West Bank.
The letter written by the Progressive Israel Network asks Israeli politicians to oppose the annexation plan, persued by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, even if US President Donald Trump gives it a green light.
It states that Trump’s endorsement of West Bank annexation does not mean a sign of long-term American policy, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
“Mistaking such a ‘green light’ from the president — for any type of consensus on the part of either US political party — would be a dangerous error for Israel,” the letter reads.
“Simply put, the approach of this president does not represent the long-term interests and likely future policy of the United States.”
