- Israeli Annexation Bombshell Imminent
by http://www.presstv.ir/ , 8 May 2016
The Israeli regime will present a bill to the Knesset in the coming weeks, calling for the annexation of 60% of the occupied West Bank, the Maariv newspaper has revealed.
According to the paper, preliminary talks have been held to annex Area C of the West Bank where more than 350,000 illegal Israeli settlers are based. The area is currently ruled by the military but an annexation would require Israeli law to be imposed and Palestinians living in the area to identify as Arab Israelis.
Many members of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet are fervently in favor of the annexation. Last week, minister of judiciary affairs Ayelet Shaked said she was working on a plan to apply Israeli law to Area C. Naftali Bennett, the leader of the extreme right-wing Jewish Home Party, which is part of the ruling coalition, also said, “It is better for Israel to begin annexing Area C.”
The Israeli occupiers of the Palestinian lands deem the West Bank as “liberated land,” saying formal annexation is only a matter of time. In annexing the West Bank, Tel Aviv is stripping the Palestinian Authority and its president Mahmoud Abbas of power despite all the concessions he has made to the Israelis.
Under interim agreements signed in the 1990s with Israel, the West Bank is divided into three zones. Area A, comprising about 18 percent of the land, is supposed to be run by the Palestinian Authority but Israeli troops and Shin Bet agents frequently mount raids inside the area.
Area B, constituting around 22 percent of the rural West Bank, is administered by the Palestinian Authority for its civil affairs and by Israel for its security issues. Area C comprises over 60% of the territory and is totally run by the Israeli military even though it is home to 300,000 Palestinians, according to the United Nations.
Israeli officials claim there are only 50,000 Palestinians living there and therefore Israel could easily annex the territory. Virtually all of the Israeli settler population of the West Bank of more than 350,000 is based in Area C.
The Israeli military almost never grants Palestinians living in Area C building permits. According to a UN report, more than 11,000 demolition orders are currently outstanding in Area C.
The number of illegal Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank has reached more than 700,000 and Israel is working at an accelerated pace to increase this to one million within a few years. With the Tel Aviv regime moving to annex the West Bank, all eyes would be on Arab leaders to see how they would react to the calamity.

- Numbers 1:19
As the Lord commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.
[ Census of the Levites Commanded ] Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying:
[ The Second Passover ] Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying:
And the children of Israel set out from the wilderness of Sinai on their journeys; then the cloud settled down in the wilderness of Paran.
And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness.
Revelation 12:3-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
