Was it really O who arranged this?

Israel Threatens to Give Trump Evidence Obama Was Behind U.N. Resolution

Feeds right into the old "secret Muslim" thing about O, doesn't it?

A profound conflict of aims separates O and most Democrats on the one side from The Duce, Bibi, and most Republicans on the other.

Israel braces for more tensions with US as Kerry plans major speech

The further left wants to see Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip incorporated into a single, multi-ethnic, democratic, and secular state.

Many of them seem to think such a state would quickly be dominated politically and culturally by a growing Arab Muslim majority and not mind that, though perhaps the state would become more like internally fissured Lebanon.

That view is not actually in the running, in any case.

Currently, the US, the UN, and Europe support the two-state solution, with the West Bank and Gaza Strip becoming a Palestinian State cheek by jowl with an Israel sunk within its pre-1967 borders.

The capital of this Palestinian State would be East Jerusalem.

But that is a view nowadays favored only by Democrats and the main stream left of both America and Europe.

The American and European further right, and increasingly the mainstream right, agree with Bibi and The Duce, seeming to favor Israel, the West Bank, and maybe even the Gaza Strip uniting to form a single Israel, the Jewish Homeland of traditional Zionism, a state demographically, culturally, and politically Jewish.

And Jerusalem, of course, would be its capital city.
