US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, has stated that Israel has a right to annex parts of the West Bank, causing anger among the Palestinians. The Palestinian Foreign Ministry sharply condemned the Ambassador’s words on Sunday.

Friedman had in an interview with The New York Times among other things, said: “I think that Israel under certain circumstances has the right to keep a part, but probably not the whole of the West Bank.” It was unclear whether he was referring to the content of the unpublished US peace plan to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. With the drafting of this plan had Trump commissioned his son-in-law Jared Kushner. The public presentation was, however, several times and last postponed to next fall, In any case, an official annexation of the West Bank would be a very provocative step.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry wrote in its statement that Friedman’s comments showed how one-sidedly pro-Israel the American government was. Consider integrating the International Criminal Court.

Israel had conquered the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967 during the Six-Day War. The Palestinians want to build their own state in these areas, whose capital is to be East Jerusalem.

The Israeli organization Peace Now wrote on Twitter that an annexation of the West Bank would “plunge the entire region into disaster and jeopardize Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state.” President Donald Trump must dismiss Friedman immediately if he wants to be a fair mediator.

The Palestinians broke off contact with Trump’s government after he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December 2017, and then moved the Tel Aviv embassy there. Since then, the Palestinians no longer view the United States as an honest mediator.
