Not even three years ago, when Benjamin Netanyahu was talking openly about annexing huge chunks of the West Bank, the response was sharp and swift. It came from Palestinians but also from Washington, Brussels, and Jewish communities who fretted, then as now, for the loss of the two-state solution and of Israel’s “Jewish and democratic character.”
Guess what? Israel just annexed huge chunks of the West Bank. And you probably didn’t even hear about it. Only a few voices have been raised about this monumental event, and none of them drew a response from the New York Times, the Washington Post, the White House, Foggy Bottom, or Capitol Hill.
