'Most pro-Israel administration evah' going all out to destroy Israel?
Now that his administration has reached its final months, and little can be done to him personally, Barack Obama is pushing a harder line against Israel
in an upcoming report about the 'settlements.'
The report, which is likely to be released in late May or early June,
will focus heavily on Israeli construction in Judea, Samaria, and
Jerusalem, senior diplomats told AP. The Quartet’s report will also take Israel to task for the demolition of illegal Arab buildings – many of which were built with the support of the European Union.
While in the past the US worked to soften some of the criticism
against Israel leveled by the EU, UN, and Russia, now, say officials
working on the Quartet report, US diplomats are pushing for harsher
language against the Jewish state.
One diplomat said the report was the Obama administration’s way of
putting Israel “on notice” that its patience was wearing thin.
Other officials involved in the drafting of the document claimed the
report will also criticize Israel for the legalization of some Jewish
communities in Judea and Samaria.
News of the Quartet report comes amid leaks indicating the Obama
administration is considering unprecedented moves to force Israel and
the Palestinian Authority to the negotiating channel. One option reportedly
on the table is a United Nations Security Council Resolution to layout
the frame work for a final status agreement – and force both Israel and
the Palestinian Authority into final talks.
Because the Iran deal that he rammed through Congress didn't endanger Israel enough.... 'Most pro-Israel administration evah'?
