Hunger striking settlers: Benjamin Netanyahu must keep pledge to build new settlement

The new campaign by the Amona families is part of a number of right-wing initiatives designed to pressure Netanyahu to stand against the cautionary warnings by the Trump Administration to restrain settlement activity.

Among the diplomatic red lines they want Netanyahu to cross, is the creation of a new settlement.

It’s a move that goes against past Israeli obligations to the United States.

Boaron said the Prime Minister’s Office promised two weeks ago that Netanyahu planned to keep his promise, but they have heard nothing since his return from Australia earlier this week, in spite of repeated efforts to make contact.

“We are completely disconnected. If the Prime Minister and his people want to contact us, they know where to find us. We are not far away,” he said.

To move forward, he said, the government must formally vote to approve the new community, without that nothing can happen, Boaron said.

The PMO said in response that Netanyahu intended to fulfill his promise to the Amona residents. But Netanyahu has also indicated to reporters that this is not something that can happen now.
