While Jerusalem officials say the softened final declaration of the Paris conference is because of successful diplomacy, John Kerry has called Netanyahu telling him, in essence, don't worry.
In the wake of yesterday's final declaration in Paris, the United Nations Security Council is set to meet tomorrow, on Wednesday, 17 January. Its goal, says Council President Olaf Skook, is to "trigger action towards a two-state solution" between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
What can Israel expect from the Paris conference of seventy nations that starts on Sunday? According to Anne Bayefsky, it should expect further diplomatic attacks under the guiding hand of President Barack Obama who "has gone rogue."
Mostly behind closed doors and for eight years, the US Obama administration has relentlessly argued its solution to peace between Israel and the Palestinians. What are those arguments? Now we know. In almost 10,000 words, US Secretary of State John Kerry, revealed everything on 28 December 2016. This is a complete copy, and video record, of his words. Its official title, notably, is "Remarks on Middle East Peace."
Why is Israel in an uproar about UN Security Council Resolution 2334? As leaders throughout Israel condemn the resolution, passed on Friday, 23 December, the exact text of Resolution 2334 is a critically important touchpoint. Less than 1,000 words in length, this is the complete and undedited text of that resolution.
