A Greater Israel? Faction says no to two-state solution, yes to annexing Palestinian areas

Prophecy Sign:  Israel to expand beyond its present borders, (Numbers 34:1-12)

Israeli politicians from the hardline rightwing parties are calling for the jettison of any further peace talks and simply annex the regions of Judea and Samaria, (the West Bank) to increase the size of Israel's borders. This is not likely to happen anytime soon, but future bible prophecy tells us that a time is coming, (likely during the Millennial Kingdom), that Israel will finally expand to the border that God promised the descendants of Abraham.  Chapter 34 of the book of Numbers gives full details on these final borders that neither ancient Israel or present day Israel has ever occupied in full.

On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates--Genesis 15:18 NIV

A Greater Israel? Faction says no to two-state solution, yes to annexing Palestinian areas
As Secretary of State John F. Kerry resumes talks here Wednesday in the quest to create “two states for two people,” a vocal faction in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government is, more openly than ever, opposing the very idea of a Palestinian state — and putting forward its own plans to take, rather than give away, territory. Ministers in Netanyahu’s ruling coalition and leaders of his party, the Likud, are in revolt against the international community’s long-held consensus that there should be two states between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. In the process, they are seeking to overturn the commitments of every U.S. president since Bill Clinton and at least four Israeli prime ministers, including the current one.
Instead of a sovereign Palestinian nation arising in the West Bank and Gaza, with East Jerusalem as its capital — which has been the focus of on-again, off-again peace negotiations since the Oslo Accords in 1993 — the two-state opponents envision Israel annexing large swaths of the West Bank.
