US concerns delaying Jerusalem bill says Israel’s prime minister

Vastavam web: An official close to Israel’s prime minister says a vote to link West Bank settlements to Jerusalem is stalled due to US concerns.David Bitan, the Likud party’s parliamentary whip and a close Netanyahu ally, told Army Radio the vote set for Sunday is delayed because “there is American pressure claiming this is annexation.”
The law stops short of annexing West Bank territory to Israel, and its practical implications are unclear.It says the communities will be considered “daughter municipalities” of Jerusalem.
