Netanyahu pledges to take back ‘sites that have security importance or are important to Israel’s heritage’ one day away from elections

by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent

(Worthy News) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his final campaign pledge Monday, the night before elections Tuesday, promising to annex “all the settlements” in the West Bank.

In an interview with Israeli army radio, Netanyahu said the proposal would even include Hebron, the mostly Palestinian city where the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are entombed and site of historic mass murders of both Jews and Palestinian Muslims.

“There is nothing more normal than making Hebron an Israeli city, since it is Judaism’s second most historical site and city,” Yishai Fleisher, spokesman for the Jewish community in Hebron, told the Jewish News Syndicate afterward.

Almost two weeks ago Netanyahu visited the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, becoming only the third active Israeli Prime Minister to do so, and signaled his intention to take back more of Israel’s territory the following week by pledging to annex the Jordan Valley.

The plan could be derailed if Netanyahu fails to gain a majority of seats for a ruling coalition in Israel’s Knesset Tuesday.
