Gaza10Mar8NAZARETH (PNIC):-The Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has called for annexing every part of the occupied West Bank and rejecting initiatives that would see Israel apply its sovereignty only to parts of the territory.

In a speech at a conference in Occupied Jerusalem organized by the Israel Democracy Institute, Rivlin said: “There is room to examine the application of the Israeli law and sovereignty over Judea and Samaria”, using the biblical term for the West Bank.

A longtime proponent of annexing Palestinian lands in the West Bank, the Israeli President further claimed that it is a mistake to think that Israeli law can be applied only to parts of the West Bank.

Rivlin also called for propping up Judaization schemes and Israeli control over the occupied Palestinian territories as a means to boost Israel’s “Jewish” and “democratic” character.
