Greenblatt’s remarks were made Thursday evening at Shurat HaDin’s virtual roundtable, entitled “Pulling the Annexation Trigger.”
Less than a week before the apparent annexation, Shurat HaDin, the human rights organization that specializes in the legal and economic struggle against terrorist organizations, held a virtual roundtable on Thursday evening with a panel of legal experts discussing US President Donald Trump’s peace plan and the implications of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
Jason Greenblatt, the former US special envoy to the Middle East, participated in the discussion, moderated by Adv. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, president of Shurat HaDin, along with international lawyers and experts such as Prof. Alan Dershowitz and former US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro.
Regarding the international implications for the annexation process, he commented: “If the EU takes drastic measures against Israel, they will eventually regret it, because they need the State of Israel. It is no longer a small country. Any discussion on the subject held by the UN will be a waste of time and will certainly will not help the Palestinians. It will only delay peace. The reason why there is no peace is not annexation, because there was no peace between Israel and the Palestinians before 1967.”
