"We don't need American approval if we are doing something that we think, as a sovereign state, we should do." This is a claim that any state can abrogate any int'l agreement or law, simply because it thinks "it should do so" i.e. any int'l agreement or treaty or law accpeted by Israel is less than worthless. Israel entered into an agreement. That agreement said that ALL settlement construction must cease. Just a few weeks ago Israel reaffirmed that it accepts that agreement, and it ALSO accepted that the USA will be the final judge of who is and who is not complying with that agreement. And now we have this duplicitous little shit saying that Israel's word is not to be trusted i.e. it can break any agreement if it thinks "it should do so", and it has a right to accept and then blythly reject the USA's role as referee. Which should give the USA pause to consider just how trustworthy an ally Israel really is. As in, not much....
