This is Israels right wing leadership having a temper tantrum because they're not getting theyre way once again.Get used to it Israel.This isnt antisemitic- this is the world getting tired of Israel acting rash when things dont go theyre way.I also think its time we address cutting funds for foreign aid.Much of this foreign aid has hinged on Israel acting in good faith on supporting a peaceful resolution to the Palestian conflict without new settlements.Israel has no right to voice in this matter when they themselves hide theyre own nuclear nightmare that could wipe out the Middle East.

This is yet more warmongering and mischief by Israel who are greedy for land and want to promote their insular society which flies in the face of EU equal opportunities for all. Israel can help stabilize the region by becoming part of Palestine which is what it was before the 2nd World War.

By approving more settlements, it´s pretty much clearer tht Israel is the troublemaker in the ME.
