    Default No VETO for Mr. PEOUTS

    US abstention allows UN to demand end to Israeli settlements

    Donald Trump and Israel had urged Washington to use its veto to stop historic security council resolution
    The United Nations security council has adopted a landmark resolution demanding a halt to all Israeli settlement in the occupied territories after Barack Obama’s administration refused to veto the resolution.A White House official said Obama had taken the decision to abstain in the absence of any meaningful peace process.
    The resolution passed by a 14-0 vote on Friday night. Loud applause was heard in the packed chamber when the US ambassador, Samantha Power, abstained.
    The resolution says Israel’s settlements on Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, have “no legal validity” and demands a halt to “all Israeli settlement activities,” saying this “is essential for salvaging the two-state solution”. The resolution reiterated that Israeli settlement was a “flagrant violation” of international law.
    The United States vetoed a similar resolution in 2011, which was the sole veto cast by the Obama administration at the security council.
    Explaining the US abstention, Power said the Israeli settlement “seriously undermines Israel’s security”, adding : “The United States has been sending a message that the settlements must stop privately and publicly for nearly five decades.”Power said the US did not veto the resolution because the Obama administration believed it reflected the state of affairs regarding settlement and remained consistent with US policy.
    “One cannot simultaneously champion expanding Israeli settlements and champion a viable two-state solution that would end the conflict. One had to make a choice between settlements and separation,” Power said.
    The Israeli ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, bluntly told the council that the resolution would not have the hoped-for impact of spurring peace efforts.
    “By voting yes in favour of this resolution, you have in fact voted no. You voted no to negotiation, you voted no to progress and a chance for better lives for Israelis and Palestinians, and you voted no to the possibility of peace,” Danon told the council.

    So France and UK voted, and US abstained.

    but Netanyahu is crying...

    Will the Israelis stop the settlements?

    Obama is probably trying to do all the things he can at the end, while Trump complaining.

    Is there any hope for peace?

    will the conflict be going with no end?



    Edit: can some mod fix PEOUTS to PEOTUS

    This is one of those things dummies think will make Obama look good in the history books, when in fact, he has just further alienated a long time ally. Trump cannot get here fast enough.

    I think we can all agree that Obama, and most leftists, are anti-semites.

    Does this actually mean anything? The UN has condemned plenty of stuff before and no-one gave a damn.

    so the UN is technically pointless. They just make rules which are not followed.

    If the democrats fail so miserably, with the support of media, foreign leaders of EU, ...etc. They can only blame Putin for their losses. They cannot say "we lost" with dignity. They have to find excuses and an enemy to accuse, so they feel less butthurt.

    It always makes me laugh when people accuse others of conspiracy theories, while engaging in a conspiracy theory.

    No. I didn't. But that as well. I meant trump wants to get into a race with the big boys, and he (you) will lose. We all will, but I'll put money on vladdie doing better than donnie. As soon as they sit down for their fireside chats we'll see what happens. But the US was Russias biggest threat. Now, it's their biggest trump card.

    But, sure, on the rigging. I'm sure you believe vlad over the CIA and FBI as well. On ya!

    Russia has grown by over 10,000 square miles under Obama. We know that Vladdie did better than Barry.

    But you attacked people for saying it was rigged only a few months ago... Do you hold any actual beliefs?

    Only that the CIA and FBI said. So apart from it being the official position which is the opposite of conspiracy theory..... I didn't actually give it much credence until then. And if they recant, so will I.

    This is false, the UN does do things, quite a few of which are humanitarian. They can also enact sanctions against governments.

    Actually I blame Hillary and Debbie Washerman Schultz more for that. Howard Dean had the correct approach, and since he was successful they got rid of him. Hillary took tons of money out of local races and slushed it into her campaign coffers, then proceeded to have no coat tails and cost the DNC local seats. She's probably funneling that money into her personal account right now.

    I always found this funny, Sadam used WMD's against the Kurds, so he definitely had them, they probably went to Iran or Syria.

    When did I say it was rigged? I'm not a democrat, I would have accepted the election results had Hillary won, I would have moved to Australia, but would have accepted it.

    indeed, when both are enemies of Saddam.

    Ramsfield sold the weapons to Saddam to use against Iran, so he should know better how many he sold and how many were used in that war!

    So if they are included then wouldnt that justify the wars in Syria and Libya then?

    Both regimes had a stockpile of chemical weapons.
