John Kerry talked for about an hour and said absolutely NOTHING!
He was trying to explain the US abstention vote at the UN……
He did what every president has done since Carter….wait to the last minute make a speech and pray that it helps the presidential legacy…..
I do not see the purpose of this speech….it was a confusing speech on all fronts…..some thoughts about it….
With the country in the middle of an essentially unprecedented political crisis, there’s a kind of eerie normalcy to the speech on Israel and Palestine that John Kerry delivered Wednesday afternoon. The remarks themselves were unusually harsh, as was the United Nations resolution on Israeli settlements last week that the administration allowed through. But US presidents and secretaries of state have been talking about the issue for literally decades without much changing.
Time for a reset for the Palestinians…..they will get NO justice from the US…the claws of the Israel Lobby runs deep into the pockets of our elected officials. Time for the Palestinians to forget the US and take their case to the world and stop depending on a country like the US to champion justice.
There is no doubt that the UN Security Council condemnation of Israel on Friday was an important and noteworthy event.
True, the United Nations’ main chambers (the Security Council and the General Assembly) and its various institutions, ranging from the International Court of Justice to the UN cultural agency, UNESCO, have repeatedly condemned the Israeli occupation, illegal Jewish settlements and mistreatment of Palestinians.
In fact, unlike the 23 December resolution 2334, the past UN condemnations were far stronger – for some resolutions did not just demand an immediate halt of illegal Jewish settlement construction, but the removal of existing settlements as well.
Most of the world already recognizes Palestine……
The map below shos the countries in purple that are recognizing Palestine…..
But if your geography sucks…which I am guess it does…….. then here is the list of the countries…..
The countries that recognize Palestine as a state they represent 80% of the world’s population but 75% of cash belongs to the ones who do not
