Earlier, mortar shells were fired into Israeli territory in apparent spillover from Syria war.12:12 13.10.15 | 0 comments
For Forty Years, and especially the last 20, Israel has arrogantly flaunted the Third Geneva Convention and the UN Charter. Netanyahu discarded the fig-leaf which allowed all to ignore the rapacious seizure of land that turned the Six Day War from one of defense to one which produced territorial gain - and thus became a war of aggression. Had Netanyahu continued to pretend that peace was possible and the 'peace process' credible the world would still be pretending that all would eventually be well and it need do nothing. Game over. Netanyahu made it absolutely clear that Israel's goal was the gradual annexation by settlement of all the West Bank, and therefore the world could no longer ignore the aggression. Now Bibi is vexed by what he so arrogantly wrought and bragged about. The Security Council can block action by the UN, but it cannot stop the General Assembly from admitting any nation. Israel's trillions spent upon settlements and the destruction of it's credibility as a civilized nation, will have been for naught.
