The Syrian army is rapidly closing in on the rebels who are in control of the city, leaving a narrow corridor through which civilians are escaping on foot; Russian and Iranian support are tipping the balance in Assad's favor.01:04 06.02.16 | 1 comments
The Quartet is a bunch of jokers wasting their taxpayers' money. The Palestinians are making one condition for return to negotations, that settlement activity ceases. Is that unreasonable? Does the Quartet believe that continuing illegal settlements is legal? If not, can't they FORCE Israel to comply with international law? If countries whose trade Israel needs cannot apply enough pressure by even the threat of sanctions they are a waste of time. Look at the sanctions against the Palestinians, for seeking dignity in statehood. It didn't take long for the US Congress to cut aid. People are fed up with the hot air being spewed by the Quartet.
