Bibi wins again in Israel, but at what cost to Middle East peace process?

Dr Victor Kattan, Senior Research Fellow from the Middle East Institute at NUS observed that if Mr Netanyahu wins the election, he will be expected to follow through on his pre-election promise of extending Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank, which will have far-reaching consequences. Dr Vattan opined that annexation would likely kill off the prospects of establishing a Palestinian state, amount to a flagrant violation of international law and be followed by unrest in the West Bank and Gaza.
