Amb Ron Dermer: Annex Judea, Samaria & Jordan Valley Now, in Case Trump Loses
Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer is urging the government to apply sovereignty in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley quickly, due to the possibility of Donald Trump losing the upcoming US Presidential election.
Speaking in a closed briefing in Washington DC, Dermer said that "we must move forward with the annexation now because we don't know what will happen in the US presidential election in November—Biden may win. Now there is a window of opportunity and so we should do it now."
"There is a one-time opportunity to promote annexation as long as Trump is there," Dermer went on to say.
Dermer has been talking to senior US government officials in recent weeks to promote a swift application of Israeli sovereignty over territories liberated during the Six-Day War.
Dermer was reported to have said that the next administration would have to live with the facts on the ground established during the Trump Administration. (VFI News)
