MK Danny Danon (Likud) wrote on Thursday that if the Palestinian Authority acts unilaterally to change the status of the West Bank of Gaza Strip through the UN this September, then Israel "too, is no longer bound by its contents and is freed to take unilateral action."

In an op-ed piece in the New York Times, Danon explained that Israel would stop security and diplomatic assistance to the Palestinians, as well as the transfer of tax revenues, "upwards of $1 billion per year." The Likud MK added that "this alone could threaten the very existence of the Palestinian Authority."

Danon wrote that Israel would also have the freedom to "rectify the mistake we made in 1967," and extend Israeli jurisdiction to all Jewish settlements and uninhabited land in the West Bank.
