US Ambassador: Trump Will Soon Approve Israeli West Bank Sovereignty Declaration

In an interview released by Israel Hayom Wednesday, June 24, 2020, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that the application of Israeli sovereignty is expected soon and will be approved by the Trump administration.

The intent to annex 30% of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria), beginning July 1, 2020 had been foundational to Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection strategy.

This move marks 53 years since Israel's recapture of the West Bank in the Six Day War in 1967, and 39 years since Israel annexed the Golan Heights in 1981.

In 2019, President Trump made the United States the only nation outside of Israel that recognizes the Golan as sovereign Israeli land and is about to make history again by welcoming back Judea and Samaria, or at least parts thereof, into Israel.

In response to these moves, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threatened to cancel all agreements signed with Israel if it annexes any part of Judea and Samaria.

Here to discuss the rising tensions over the impending sovereignty declaration is the former Mayor of Shiloh, David Rubin, who is also the author of "Trump and the Jews".

Q: Why is this West Bank sovereignty move so controversial? 

A: The West Bank, more accurately called by its proper geographic terms Judea (south of Jerusalem) and Samaria (north of Jerusalem), is the region where we find the biblical historical towns and cities like Bethel, Shiloh, Bethlehem, and Hebron. Israel recaptured this area in the Six Day War in 1967. Since then, it has been a political hot potato. In 1993, the Oslo Peace accords were signed between Israel and the Palestinians, giving the Palestinians autonomy in seven cities. Rather than accept that autonomy peacefully, the Palestinians have waged two decades of terrorist war against Israeli civilians. My then three-year-old son and I were seriously wounded in one of those attacks, but there have been thousands of victims.

Q: Why hasn't Israel at least declared its sovereignty over the parts of Judea and Samaria that it controls? 

A: Most American presidents have strongly opposed such a move, and we try to coordinate with our American friends, so the area has remained in limbo. President Trump, however, has changed the rules of the game with his Deal of the Century, which allows Israel to unilaterally declare its sovereignty over 30% of Judea and Samaria, with American approval.

Q: Israel has just formed a unity government, which has declared its intent to proclaim sovereignty in the month of July. Despite the fierce international opposition, will they go forward with this move? 

A: This will be the fulfillment of an often-repeated campaign promise that got Netanyahu elected, and therefore, I will be very surprised if it does not happen.


World News: Trump to Approve Israeli West Bank Sovereignty Declaration in Coming Weeks


Q: Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority is threatening to burn the Oslo peace agreements if sovereignty is declared. Are you concerned? 

A: Those peace agreements were immoral to begin with, and they were exploited by Abbas to fund his terrorist war against Israel, which has continued to this day. If he carries out his threat, he will be depositing those agreements into the dustbin of history, which is actually where they belong. The Israeli declaration of sovereignty over 30 % of Judea and Samaria, with Trump's approval, is a good first step on the road to sustainable peace and justice and it should be done as soon as possible.

Q: Your book, "Trump and the Jews", discusses all of these issues. Where can our viewers/listeners get a copy? 

A: They can go to my website, www.DavidRubinIsrael.com or just go to Amazon and type in the words "Trump and the Jews."

 

Bio: David Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh Israel, is the author of the book, "Trump and the Jews" and five other books. Rubin is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children's Fund, established after he and his then three-year-old son were wounded in a terror attack.
