American Hypocrisy over Israel May have been Out-Done by UK
If you have been reading this blog for a couple of years you will know I am not a fan of Theresa May. Her third attempt to start an inquiry into child sex abuse is sputtering along barely moving. Her obscene remarks in parliament in an attempt at humour have not helped to endear her to me. Now, after the UK played a critical role in the writing of the most recent antisemitic UNSC resolution, she has the nerve to complain about John Kerry's antisemitic complaints about Benjamin Netanyahu. It's too late P.M. T.M.; you blew it!

LONDON, -- British Prime Minister Theresa May offered a rare rebuke of the United States, condemning a speech by Secretary of State John Kerry attacking Israeli settlements on Palestinian land.
The statement, released by 10 Downing St. on Thursday night, comes as the Obama administration's final days tick down and after President-elect Donald Trump criticized the U.S. decision not to veto a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements.
The U.N. resolution, which Israel has accused the United States of brokering, calls the settlements a "flagrant violation" of international law that endangers the increasingly distant possibility the Israelis and Palestinians will be able to reach a lasting two-state peace deal. Great Britain acted as a go-between in crafting the resolution, which Israel deeply opposed, making Thursday's rebuke all the more surprising, The Washington Post reported.
In a speech Wednesday, Kerry labeled the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "the most right-wing in Israel's history, with an agenda driven by the most extreme elements."
May, who leads a conservative British government, responded Thursday, saying through a spokesman the United States should refrain from critiquing the domestic politics of an allied government.
May does "not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically elected government of an ally," a spokesman for the prime minister said. "The government believes that negotiations will only succeed when they are conducted between the two parties, supported by the international community."
It is not appropriate to attack... Isn't that exactly what the UK did in the UN? So what she's really saying is that it is not appropriate to be seen to attack.... You should be more subtle, more sneaky, like a snake!
T.M. should have kept her mouth shut rather than joining Obama and Kerry in their last minute slide from any semblance of decency and good character into a desperate pettiness.
The comments come as U.S. allies prepare to rewrite the diplomatic playbook once Trump assumes the presidency. Trump was publicly outraged by the U.S. decision not to veto the U.N.'s Israeli settlement resolution and has said he supports the Israeli government's claims to land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Why Israel must control the West Bank and Golan Heights...
To do otherwise would be just suicidal. The USA knows that and, surely, the UK does too. So stop the BS and tell the world you want Israel to be destroyed so Muslims can live in peace. Oh, wait, there are no Muslim countries living in peace. Must be the Jews fault! Surely, once all the Jews are dead, the Muslims will be happy and stop killing each other and raping little English girls.
