Israel's governing Likud party has passed a draft resolution urging the party's leaders to establish Israeli sovereignty over large parts of the Occupied West Bank - and formally annex the Palestinian territory.

Likud's right wing has been buoyed by the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Joining us to discuss this from Chicago on Skype, Ali Abunimah, the Co-founder of the Electronic Intifada online news service.
