Israel’s claim it will now build 3000 more settlements on Arab land has rippled the water. Britain and France are about to pull their ambassadors we are being told, and days later the same will be done a couple of days later by the Dutch and German diplomatic delegations.

They have no choice.

One cannot be supportive of a bully. And there is no reason other than bullying to put these settlements on lands that will continue driving a wedge into all prospects of peace.

Netanyahu stood before the UN General Assembly with a picture of a bomb and called for a red line to be used against Iran.

Yet he totally fails to recognize the red line the West holds in offering their support for him. No new settlements. He has crossed that red line.

The US has always publicly supported Israel on principal. This action makes it extremely hard to do so… in person.
