The election in Israel is over. Benjamin Netanyahu is still its prime minister. At this point in history the only nation that has any respect for the current government in Israel is the Republic of Hate and Fear in the United States. There is not a single nation in Europe which supports the Bibi administration and the black dude in the White House is somewhat peeved. President Obama did make a telephone call to the lid mouth in Israel. “I did indicate to him that we continue to believe that a two state solution is the only way for the long term security of Israel if it wants to stay with a Jewish state and be democratic.” The President made clear that his administration will rethink its options about the Middle East.
Here are some possible American options:
1. Support a UN Security Council resolution that Israel is violating international law by its actions on the West Bank.
2. Support a UN resolution that recognizes the state of Palestine.
3. Support a UN resolution asking the International Court of Criminal Justice to examine Israel actions on the West Bank and in the recent war in Gaza as possible violations of human rights.
4. Tell Israel’s Ambassador to the US to go back home.
So, Bibi, how will John Boehner now help you?
