Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated on Sunday his earlier pledge to annex all the Jewish communities in Yehuda ad Shomron.

Speaking to children in the 4,000-resident town of Elkana in Shomron on their first day at school, Netanyahu said, “There will not be any more uprooting. With God’s help, we will extend Jewish sovereignty to all the ‘settlements,’ as part of the Land of Israel and and as part of the State of Israel.”

Netanyahu’s last public statement in support of annexation came five months ago, in the days leading up to the April 9 elections. The country is heading into repeat elections on Sept. 17.

“This is our land,” Netanyahu said in his speech, according to Reuters. “We will build another Elkana and another Elkana and another Elkana. We will not uproot anyone here.”

On Friday, Netanyahu said he believes the “deal of the century” peace plan crafted by U.S. President Donald Trump will be published soon after the Sept. 17 election.

    I’m not ideologically against the settlements but even so I question the wisdom behind them.

    They require an enormous amount of security , put peoples lives at risk and even though I know that without the settlements the world will quickly find some other excuse to hate Israel bottom line is they do cause diplomatic problems and make solutions more difficult.
