Quoted: Annexation

I was quoted in an Australian Jewish News article today about Israel’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank:

Meanwhile, the New Israel Fund Australia (NIF) has called on the Australian government to oppose any annexation moves.

NIF Australia executive director Liam Getreu has written to Foreign Minister Marise Payne, stating, “The consequences of the proposed unilateral moves are grave – for the Palestinian people, whose basic rights and aspirations for statehood would be permanently denied – but also for Israel’s democratic character, its security and its international standing.”
