First comprehensive study in Hebrew into Islamic State says Sunni group could wield more influence over Israeli Arabs and Palestinians if it takes land closer to Israel’s borders.11:08 28.11.15 | 1 comments
"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged on Monday that Israel would ensure that the report would be vetoed at the United Nations General Assembly." Bibi has flipped or is on drugs. I just reread the UN Charter to confirm that no country has a veto in the General Assembly. In the Human Rights Council, where there is no veto power, 2/5 (Russia, China) with Security Council veto power voted against Israel and 2/5 (France, UK) did not vote despite heavy lobbying by Israel. The US was the only country with a SC veto to vote against the Report and Bibi is doing everything he can to alienate the US. Given recent increases in settlemnt construction, the US veto is certainly nothing Bibi can pledge to anyone. His comment about the General Assembly is nothing short of bizarre, Having been a UN diplomat himself, certainly Bibi once knew there's no General Assembly veto. There is, I suggest, strong reason to question his mental and emotional stability.
