Majority of Israelis support sovereignty over occupied territories

I wish to reply to Zvika Arran and Warren Lewis (SA Jewish Report, 19 June 2020).
by Bennie Katzman, Israel | Jul 02, 2020

I implore the South African Jewish community not to get involved in Israeli politics. I would remind Arran and Lewis that according to the latest poll, 57% of Israelis support sovereignty over 30% of Judah and Samaria, and the Jordan Valley. Arran and Lewis call it “annexation”, 57% of us call it sovereignty over what belongs to Israel historically.

As usual, the Palestinians are missing an opportunity. The two-state “solution” has been suggested since 1967, but it’s dead in the water.

Warren, while living in South Africa, I was actively involved in the campaign against apartheid, stomping the streets in all types of weather.

    While you don't want us to get involved in Israel's politics, we are effected when Israeli politicians do controversial things.
    When Trump moved the embassy there was increased instability in Israel and in diaspora communities.
    Annexing part of the West Bank will likewise increase antisemitism.
