Erdan: Israel should annex settlements

Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan on Wednesday morning called for the government to annex all West Bank settlements.
In an interview with Israel Radio, Erdan called for the "immediate annexation of the Jewish population" in the West Bank in response to the Palestinian Authority's attempt to upgrade its status at the United Nations.
When asked if he was concerned that annexing the settlements would anger the United States, Erdan responded that as long as the PA was going against American wishes at the UN, Israel should sit idly by without acting. "We don't always see eye-to-eye with the US," he said.
