Have you had enough of the BS surrounding the announcement by Ted Cruz yet?
Our man in Israel, BiBi, has won his little election……with some help from some pretty damning statements….like :never will be a two state solution” (paraphrase and his racist rant about Arab-Israeli voters….”Arabs are voting in droves”……all of which energized the far right and brought them out to vote…..and he won!
The US is not happy with him to say the least…….his words have shown why there has been NO substantial progress on peace negotiations…….I have been saying it is time for the US to step back and make Israel stand on their own….and maybe there is a chance this could occur……
A spat between Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama, coupled with Netanyahu openly campaigning on his opposition to Palestinian statehood, seems to have changed that, and Obama has warned Netanyahu that the US is re-assessing its policies on Israel.
That could mean a lot of different things, but administration officials say it includes serious consideration of backing a UN Security Council resolution supporting, in principle, Palestinian statehood along the 1967 borders.
About damn time and at a time when Israel is struggling with the ICC and human rights abuse allegations………the UN is looking into the claims but in the past the US has acted as the lawyers for Israel and vetoed any action attempted against the country…..that could be closing in on an outdated issue……we can hope.
Israel as I have said is being called up for their attacks in Gaza…….and with the hope to head off an ICC investigation Israel has launched its own……
Israel’s military says it has opened several criminal investigations into incidents that took place during last year’s Gaza
war against the Islamic militant group Hamas
In a statement late Thursday it says the Military Advocate General ordered six investigations, two of which were concluded with no wrongdoing found.
One case concerns the death of some 20 people who had taken shelter at a U.N. school in July.
The Gaza war left more than 2,100 Palestinians dead, mostly civilians, according to Palestinian and U.N. officials. On the Israeli side, 66 soldiers and six civilians were killed.
Would anyone trust the perpetrator to carry out an effective investigation into his actions?
This could be disastrous for BiBi if the US decides they have had enough of the antics of this liar and his games…….time for the US to do the right thing…….now Americans need to ask……Is BiBi lying now or was he lying in years past?
No matter which it is….he is a liar and cannot be trusted to act as a reliable partner in the Middle East.
