Sense page two we have gone away from what I had posted to these last 3 pages of almost waste..

Anyone care to get back on topic and allow what we already know from the past to lay there...

We do have readers people and I am sure some are not amused with your wit...

Others might be... And if so then start your own dumb to dumber thread on this topic. "The state of Israel and or should Palestinian have their own state?"

I should express a thought about many threads I have going. #1. There is credit given for posting news ever day or so. As it has but one title....

#2. I do these for our readers more than looking for members opinions and small talk.....

We have 5 pages on one item of news. Why not re-read each page and see if you helped or hindered the flow of this news item....


I sure hope that this is a political attack with intent and real corruption by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu..

Reports: Police to question Israel PM on alleged corruption

Associated Press, 2 hrs ago

JERUSALEM Israeli police will question Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later Monday about corruption allegations, the Israeli media reported.
A black screen was placed in front of Netanyahu's official residence in apparent anticipation of the investigators' arrival and to obstruct the view of journalists seeking to film them.
Netanyahu has denied what he calls "baseless" reports that he received gifts from two businessmen.
Speaking at a meeting of his Likud faction Monday afternoon, Netanyahu again denied allegations of wrongdoing.
"We've been paying attention to reports in the media, we are hearing the celebratory mood and the atmosphere in the television studios and the corridors of the opposition, and I would like to tell them, stop with the celebrations, don't rush," he said. "There won't be anything because there is nothing."
Israel's Channel 2 TV has reported that Netanyahu accepted "favors" from businessmen in Israel and abroad, and is the central suspect in a second investigation that also involves family members. It said a criminal probe is expected next week.
Israel's Justice Ministry and police have declined to comment on the media reports.
A campaign is underway by Erel Margalit, an opposition lawmaker of the Zionist Union party, for Netanyahu to be formally investigated over suspicions of prominent donors improperly transferring money for Netanyahu's personal use, as well as reports that Netanyahu's personal attorney represented a German firm involved in a $1.5 billion sale of submarines to Israel.

His mark is shameful at best as it leaves the U.S. in the position of not following the path every administration has taken in the past. Yet for a Progressive, Leftist what would one except of him?

What everyone needs to understand is Israel because of Iran going nuclear has gained new friends in every country except for the Palestinians and those fighting with them.
Now most of the countries won't say it in public but they are with Israel because Israel has nukes to fight Iran. As every country fears Iran and a nuclear Iran even more so. Yet the Palestinian people are still living in the past back in the days when Hitler hand print marked the area.

UN set for showdown as US weighs abstention on Israel vote

As our Readers don't get total free time at P.W. so lets be respectful of that for them.


And today we have this action being taken

House votes to rebuke UN on Israel

The Hill.. Cristina Marcos, 6 hrs ago.

The House passed a resolution on Thursday denouncing the Obama administration's abstention from a critical United Nations Security Council vote condemning Israeli settlements.

Lawmakers of both parties supported the measure in a 342-80 vote, with four Democrats voting "present." A majority of Democrats, 109, voted for the resolution than the 76 who opposed it. All but four Republicans voted for the resolution.
The Obama administration drew criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike last month when it declined to veto a U.N. resolution condemning Israel's expansion of settlements in occupied Palestinian territories as violations of international law.

"This government, our government, abandoned our ally Israel when she needed us the most," Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said in an animated House floor speech. "These types of one-sided efforts are designed to isolate and delegitimize Israel. They do not advance peace. They make it more elusive."

The measure passed 14-0, with support from countries like the United Kingdom, France, China and Russia. The U.S. had the power to veto the resolution by virtue of its permanent membership in the Security Council, but opted to abstain.
The Obama administration defended its break from the longstanding U.S. policy of shielding its closest Middle East ally by arguing the settlements undermined any potential path to a peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Last month's vote was the first time the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution critical of Israel in the conflict with Palestine during Obama's presidency. The Obama administration has used its veto power in support of Israel in the past. More resolutions opposed by Israel went forward during the Clinton, Reagan and both Bush administrations.
"I think allowing governments to bully Israel in the U.N. is a mistake, no matter who's in power," said Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), who cosponsored Thursday's resolution.

Passage of the resolution is likely the beginning of lawmakers' response to the U.N. action. Some top Republicans such as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) have said they want to rescind federal funding for the U.N., though no such legislation has emerged yet.
Thursday's vote is only the latest example of lawmakers in Congress, particularly Republicans, siding with conservative Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over President Obama.

Then-Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) invited Netanyahu to address Congress in 2015 without consultation from the White House, a breach of protocol that angered administration officials and further soured the president's relationship with the Israeli prime minister. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry all declined to meet with Netanyahu during his visit to Washington.
Several dozen Democrats skipped Netanyahu's speech, which largely served to warn against negotiating with Iran over its nuclear weapons, out of loyalty to the president.

Later that year, nearly 30 Democrats in both chambers voted against the international accord to curb Iran's nuclear arsenal amid furious lobbying from Israeli advocates.

Members of the House Democratic leadership were split. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Assistant Minority Leader Jim Clyburn (S.C.) voted against the resolution, while Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (N.Y.) joined Republicans in support.

Hoyer has said he doesn't support Israel's expansion of settlements, but thinks the Security Council shouldn't meddle in the conflict.
A bipartisan group of senators, led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.), introduced a similar resolution this week objecting to the U.N.'s vote. So far, no vote has been scheduled on the measure.
The Senate has been consumed with passing a budget to pave the way for repealing the healthcare law in its first week of the new Congress................

As we can see this news < House votes to rebuke UN on Israel > is serious in it's nature to each party concerned.

And we who want to add or take from this action must respect this in our responses to this news.

So keep all replies on the topic and make each reply a serious effort to express a well thought out idea.

And we need no as this might offend some parties.

What a wonderful speech! Israel is going to be very lucky to have the Republicans in charge.
