The settlement and the national camp are outraged at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to cancel the sovereignty plan in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley as part of the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
The head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, sharply attacked: “I find it hard to believe that this is true. I find it hard to believe that the prime minister of the right I elected, that the majority of the public elected him, promised a full sovereignty over all localities in Judea and Samaria.”
In an interview with News 12, Dagan said, “I have great respect for the Americans, but I did not choose Jared Kushner, I chose Benjamin Netanyahu, he is the prime minister of Israel, and he will not hide.
The public has chosen Netanyahu three times to apply sovereignty and if the prime minister sells sovereignty and sells the localities in Judea and Samaria, and I emphasize – not sovereignty with a Palestinian state, not sovereignty only over the settlement blocs, but as he said and for that he was elected: full sovereignty over all localities In Judea and Samaria, and if he sells sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, Benjamin Netanyahu may cut off the political branch on which he sits and on which his rule is based. ”
Dagan, a senior Likud activist, sent a threatening message to the party chairman: “If Prime Minister Netanyahu, and I say this as a Likud member, as someone who supported Netanyahu and wants to continue to support him, if the prime minister loses confidence and looks like he deceived the national camp, As if he had deceived the whole nation, it could be the end of his rule. ”
When asked what he thinks Netanyahu should do, the head of the Samaria Council replied that “all the stories about postponing or not postponing, that he will apply sovereignty on Sunday and postpone the peace agreement with Abu Dhabi for another three months, will uphold the agreement with that distant Muslim state that never threatened “The State of Israel and everyone understands that at the first opportunity, such as if it really applies sovereignty, it will cancel the agreement. The public is not stupid. There is a limit to cynicism.”
Dagan addressed Netanyahu and mentioned: “The left said that whoever has an indictment against him cannot be prime minister. You said ‘there are problems, there are difficulties but I will apply the sovereignty’, for that you received the mandate. There is a limit to how much can be sold to the public because the public Will return air.
“There may be a tectonic rupture here, a complete loss of confidence of the national camp in Benjamin Netanyahu. The public will not buy agreements without strategic benefit for the loss of a once-in-a-lifetime historic opportunity. ”
Dagan said of the feeling of betrayal on the right, “The feeling of betrayal is the hard thing. I think the hardest thing for the public and also for this person is to feel betrayed. We will soon see all kinds of spins from the prime minister who will look for who to blame, they will accuse us of opposing a Palestinian state. “We who opposed abandoning Elon Moreh, what the prime minister is doing is something that a right-wing prime minister is not doing. We chose Benjamin Netanyahu, we did not choose Shimon Peres.”
The head of the Samaria Council accused Netanyahu: “The prime minister wants to get citrons. We heard Amnon Abramovich praise him, “these are very serious things.”
News commentator Amit Segal commented on the broadcast and said: “In recent months there has been a campaign that Yossi Dagan was one of his leaders against the application of sovereignty in the Trump outline. The big question is how much damage to the right, how much sourness “Even there, they are quite disappointed by the fact that Netanyahu, who promised sovereignty throughout the year, is actually saying tonight, ‘I promised but I did not promise to keep it.'”
