Halting West Bank annexation resurrects the 67 line: 10 things to know – The Jerusalem Post

| September 4, 2020

The decision to suspend annexation almost automatically resurrected the pre-1967 line in the West Bank, excluding in Jerusalem.This transition last month was swift and sudden, because the two concepts are opposite sides of the same conceptional coin.One either operates within a conversation about the application of sovereignty or within a dialogue about a two-state solution at the pre-1967 lines.That is because the West Banks Area C, where over 700,000 Israelis and Palestinians live, cannot be frozen in time.The going wisdom of US President Donald Trumps regional peace plan as it has now unfolded, is to hold the West Bank in some suspended reality, to be handed out by priority to whichever side is most compliant with the process.Ideally, settlers and the Israeli Right should simply wait until the process is done, knowing that sovereignty awaits them like some golden cup prize at the end of the race.The problem has little to do with the issue of political trust that would result in this prize being theirs. Every day in what is otherwise known as the battle for Area C Palestinians and Israelis engage in activities in the West Bank that either help strengthen an inevitable annexation or assist in ensuring a two-state solution at the pre-1967 line.These activities occur within a framework of Israeli government policies that either promote annexation or oppose it. Time has slowly erased the gray area, where politicians could talk the talk, without also walking the walk.But that hasnt stopped anyone from trying.The United Arab Emirates said it had stopped annexation as a prerequisite for their deal with Israel.
