On his way out the door Obama gave Israel the finger.
From my view, the Arabs lost the 1967 war, Israel won. End of story. To the victor belongs the spoils. Historically that’s the way it has alway been. One need only look at Europe or the Middle East’s borders. Many nations didn’t even exist until after WWI or WWII. Further, Germany’s land was taken by Russia and Poland after WWII.
If the palestinians were truly interested in a two-state solution they should invest the monies they receive into the people, infrastructure, and overall improvement of the palestinian people. Instead they invest in small arms and missiles with which to kill Israelis. Insanity. Meanwhile the palestinian leaders vacuum money and live like kings while their so-called people live in squalor. The late Yasser Arafat had embezzled billions whereas his wife and daughter still live in a 5 star Paris hotel.
This bullshit has been going on for over 50 years. It needs to stop. One way to stop it is cut off the flow of money until the palestinians agree to be civilized. The other way is to cut off funds to the corrupt UN.
Under the Trump administration there looks to be a much different policy and friendliness towards Israel. Naturally, the left in this country and beyond will hate it. I’ve never understood the Left’s hatred towards Israel.
