US Embassy: Israeli West Bank Annexation Can Move Forward Without A Palestinian State

•, Tyler Durden

"As we have made consistently clear, we are prepared to recognize Israeli actions to extend Israeli sovereignty and the application of Israeli law to areas of the West Bank that the [Trump peace plan] foresees as being part of the State of Israel," a top US Embassy official told the Times of Israel on Friday.The statement made clear that "Israeli actions" will be validated with or without recognition of a Palestinian state, something which on paper at least Trump's 'deal of the century' offered. 

Though the deal offers statehood, the Palestinians have rejected the US-Israeli brokered Trump peace plan from the start, given they simply had no involvement or were not fundamentally consulted. 

Ultimately such a brazen annexation, which as we noted before PM Netanyahu said will take place as early as within two months, or likely early summer, will essentially end the path to statehood.
