John Kerrys speech on Israeli Settlements.

It is a pity that he waited four years before he made this speech! It has really upset Netanyahu, who has resorted to his usual threats. I don’t have much time for Kerry but I have to say this was a well presented and impassioned presentation and had a lot of very valid points.

John Kerry Speaking on Vision for Israeli-Palestinian Peace

"WSJ" - WASHINGTON—Secretary of State John Kerry launched a forceful defense of the Obama administration’s approach to Israel Wednesday, warning that a two-state solution is “in jeopardy” in a speech outlining the administration’s vision for finding Middle East peace.

Mr. Kerry’s remarks come amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and Israel after the U.S., refraining from using its veto last week in the United Nations Security Council, allowed a resolution critical of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem to pass.

Mr. Kerry said the U.S. decision to abstain from the vote last week was “in accordance with our values.”

It is worth listening to ..... speech actually starts at around 22 minutes in.

Kerry and Obama can go fuck themselves!

These two faced hypocrites just pick and choose what suits them. Why don't they tell Turkey the same shit as they do Israel???

Seems OK for Turkey to Occupy Cyprus but not Israel to Occupy Palestine??? Go figure.

I'm sick of hearing these self righteous pricks talk about peace, when it is they themselves that have caused the problems in the first place.

Bring on Trump!

in 8 years that obama has been in charge he must have blocked a hundred resolution against israel, for soem reason he decided not to block one now and i suspect there will be another one before he leaves.

you wish for trump knwing that one of his nominees has said thet they must see the middle east from terggish eyes. you will benefit even less than the poor american bastards who voted for him.

you stupid racist idiot so what if he is a jew. not all jews are bad people. do not judge the man by his creed but by the content of his character. it is the best thin obama administration has done in the last 8 years and perhaps if he had done it 8 years ago the peace process would have moved further.

lets hope they do opne more resolution to declare the occupation illegal and let the bastards sweat a little.

All part of Obama's scorched earth policy as he departs. Did fick all for 8 years and then stirs the sewers as he disappears off ... now supposedly expelling Russians for hacking. What a joke of a red herring!

Australia has just broken ranks despite supporting the UN Resolution against Israel.

It indicated that it supports all peace initiatives with the PLO but then also indicated that it intends to vote against all UN Resolutions against the Israeli State stating that it is counterproductive.

Trump also intends to vote against all resolutions pertaining to Israel.

Trump is going to veto all Resolutions on Israel and take a hard-line stance against Iran.

Australian UN Ambassador has also said that it will actually vote AGAINST all UN votes on Israel.

Now that the flood gates are open, expect some more countries.

There is no scorched earth policy. That is Russia's policy not America's or the Coalitions.

US president Obama has just told Russian Diplomats they have 72 hours to get out of the USA because they hacked into the US Elections and stold data as well.

The Americans have also publicly outed 6 Russian Spies working within the Embassy.

Trump has indicated that he will look at all the Intelligence Briefings meaning that these allegations will be taken very seriously.

I for one congratulate the USA for this step against the illegal meddling into US Elections.

I am hoping the Russian Embassy is given its marching orders from Canberra as well. No point in having them in Australia.

Quite happy for the Australian Embassy to shut down in Moscow as well as there is no point for its presence there.

If YOU have committed to vote against all UN resolutions, that demonstrates you are just complying with US directives. YOU have no opinion ..... YOU are but a US puppet ......YOU nod when the US tells you to! :roll:
