PM: Trump will honor pledge to recognize Israeli sovereignty on Jewish settlements

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised US President Donald Trump on Sunday in a video message marking the 100th anniversary of the San Remo Resolution in which the world powers recognized the national rights of the Jewish people on the Land of Israel.

Netanyahu said that the US President should be praised for his willingness to recognize Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria. The prime minister hinted that he would move forward with his plan to extend Israel’s sovereignty to areas of Judea and Samaria under the auspices of the newly revealed US peace plan.

“President Trump pledged to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Jewish communities there and in the Jordan Valley. A couple of months from now, I am confident that that pledge will be honored, that we will be able to celebrate another historic moment in the history of Zionism. A century after [the] San Remo [Resolution], the promise of Zionism is being realized, because we never stop fighting for our rights,” Netanyahu told evangelical Christians in a video message. He concluded by saying: “Your efforts are part of that fight. Thank you for celebrating this historic occasion and securing the Jewish future.”
