Should Israel annex the #JordanValley? Opposition says territory must remain in Israeli hands forever, but: there's a difference between annexing strategic territory as a process of DIVERGENCE (separating from the Palestinians) and as part of CONVERGENCE.
Is Israel, despairing of the Palestinians, unilaterally setting its borders by taking what the territory it needs for defence and renouncing what it doesn't? Or is annexation a prelude to annexing the whole West Bank and drawing circles around the Palestinians you don't want?
This is a distinction the opposition could have drawn, but hasn't. Separation vs. Entanglement. Instead Blue and White tells Netanyahu: a) that was our idea, b) we don't think you're serious. #Israelex19v2
Here's another line @BlueWhite2019 could have taken on #JordanValley, which would have been consistent with its actual policy:

"We believe that the Jordan Valley must remain in Israel's hands but Israel must strive to separate from the Palestinians....
"... We support strengthening Israel's hold on strategically vital territory, but NOT as part of a process to entangle Israel in a deeper conflict with the Palestinians. We condemn Netanyahu's cynical gimmick and attempt to placate the messianic settlers etc."
