"SNIP......

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas is expected to travel to Israel next week to warn that there will be consequences if Israeli leaders move forward with plans to annex parts of the West Bank, Israeli officials and European diplomats tell me.

Why it matters: Israeli and European officials agree that if Israel goes ahead with unilateral annexation, the EU will respond with sanctions.

Starting from July 1st — coincidentally, the deadline set by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to begin the annexation process — Germany will assume the EU's rotating presidency.

Germany will also preside at the UN Security Council in July, and thus would play a key role in the European and international responses to annexation.

1. It seems their mind is set and annexation will happen

The de-facto reality is being formalized. What does the future hold for the 5 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza ?

Israelis are will to do anything for security. I just don't think annexation is it.
