Calls to Annex West Bank Settlements - by Stephen Lendman

Israel want at least all valued West Bank territory and all Jerusalem.

Since 1967, Israel established 121 settlements, recognized by the Interior Ministry as "communities." Another 100 unauthorized outposts were built. 

In addition, 12 annexed Jerusalem neighborhoods are considered settlements under international law. Moreover, settler enclaves exist in Palestinian East Jerusalem areas. They include:


  • the Old City's Muslim Quarter;
  • Silwan;
  • Sheikh Jarrah;
  • Mount of Olives;
  • Ras al-'Amud;
  • Abu Dis; and
  • Jabal al-Mukabber.

Overall, Israeli occupied territory, including settlements, exceeds 40% of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, its choicest parts.
