For American Jews, Trump is key figure in Israeli election

In an interview broadcast Friday, Netanyahu said he told US President Donald Trump he would not remove settlements or people as part of a future American peace plan. "We will stay there", he said.

The Turkish president said every action of Netanyahu is against global law and that Turkey will continue to stand by Palestinians.

In an interview with Israeli television, he said: "We will ensure that we are in charge on the ground". "Yes. I will extend sovereignty but I don't distinguish between the settlement blocs and the isolated ones, because each settlement is Israeli and I will not hand it over to Palestinian sovereignty".

The veteran right-wing Israeli leader, who has dominated Israeli politics for a generation, is fighting for his political survival against former top general Benny Gantz, a political novice campaigning on a centrist platform.

Just you wait, good people of Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt - help is on the way, as soon as Israel signs a peace deal with the Palestinian Authority, you will no longer be gassed, maimed, imprisoned, raped and otherwise inconvenienced.

The Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has warned his electorate base in an address given in Hebrew that the Israeli right is in danger of losing power on election day.

However, ways to revive the moribund peace process have not been a main subject of electoral debate.

Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator for the Palestine Liberation Organization, criticized Netanyahu's statement on Saturday.

Worldwide law views the entire West Bank as "occupied territory" and considers all Israeli settlement building there as illegal.

Mr Safadi was speaking at the World Economic Forum meeting at the Dead Sea where about 1,000 government and business leaders have gathered to discuss ways to coordinate responses to some of the region's most critical issues including the Syrian refugee crisis and the suffering of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation.

Netanyahu, asked why he had not declared Israeli sovereignty over large West Bank settlements as Israel has already done in the occupied Golan Heights and East Jerusalem, said he was already discussing the move. The Palestinians, who seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as their capital, suspended contact with the U.S.

The Palestinians and many countries deem settlements to be illegal under the Geneva conventions that bar settling on land captured in war. Settlements are seen as illegal under global law, although Israel disagrees.

In 2017 Mr Trump announced that the USA recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital, overturning decades of official U.S. policy.

The United States broke with decades of worldwide consensus last month by recognising Israeli "sovereignty" over the occupied Golan Heights, territory Israel captured from Syria.
