On the 29th of June, Mada released a new position paper addressing the proposal to annex large areas of the Occupied Palestinian West Bank. Whilst the long-slated July 1st date for annexation has come and gone, it remains at the top of the current Israeli government’s agenda. This position paper, penned by Yahya Qaoud, discusses the history of annexation as an Israeli political project, and describes it as an inevitable outcome of the status quo created by the collapse of the Oslo Accords.
