Netanyahu’s call for referendum is a “ploy” to “expropriate lands, Judaize them and annex them”

Article by columnist for official PA daily Adel Abd Al-Rahman:
“The referendum suggested by [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu is no more than a new excuse and ploy to sidestep the peace process’ achievements, and to insist on barricading inside the settlements, expropriating lands, Judaizing them and annexing them to the mainstay of the colonialist Zionist project – the Israeli State. Likewise, it serves as one of the ways to perpetuate the false Israeli narrative that speaks of the ‘Jewishness’ of this state, something that also completely contradicts the Palestinian narrative.”

Note: The Referendum refers to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s suggestion that Israel should hold a referendum and let the Israeli people decide before any areas are given to the PA.
