Aftermath of The US veto of The UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel.

The story so far……

The United States has vetoed The UN resolution to condemn Israel.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) – The United States vetoed a U.N. resolution that would have condemned Israeli settlements as “illegal” and called for an immediate halt to all settlement building.

Then, it comes to light that……

UN Ambassador Susan Rice says The U.S. “regrettably” had to veto the measure.

US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Washington had “regrettably” chosen to oppose the resolution, sponsored by some 130 countries, after seeking its compromise measure was rejected.

Of course, we need to hear from the main players in the performance and we get that in a very long single article from The Jerusalem Post.

Palestinian officials express disappointment at US veto ; PM Netanyahu and Foreign Ministry say direct talks are only way to peace.

“The US veto does not serve the peace process and encourages Israel to continue constructing settlements and avoid its commitments in the peace process,” aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Nabil Abu Rudeina said. “The veto will complicate matters in the Middle East.” Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian UN observer, called the US veto unfortunate, saying the Security Council failed to respond to the Israeli-Palestinian “crisis” and send “a clear and firm message to Israel that it must … cease all of its violations and its obstruction of the peace process. We fear…that the message sent today may be one that only encourages further Israeli intransigence and impunity,” he said.

“We seek a solution that will integrate the legitimate Palestinian aspirations with Israeli requirement of security and recognition,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “The US decision makes it clear that the only way to peace is through negotiations. We are ready to vigorously advance negotiations and are interested in beginning the process of achieving secure peace and hope that the Palestinians will join the process.”

Direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians has and will continue to be the only way to resolve the conflict between the two parties, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor said in a statement similar to Netanyahu’s.  “The distance between Ramallah and Jerusalem is short, and all that is requested of the Palestinians is to return to the negotiating table without preconditions,” Palmor said. “Only in this way, and without appealing to the [United Nations] Security Council, can the peace process advance in favor of both parties, and in the favor of peace and security in the region.”

PM Netanyahu, here’s an unsolicited gift to you and the entire Israeli Knesset:  “Palestinian aspirations” are to kill every Jew on the planet and destroy every vestige of Israel’s existence…… and they’re actually working towards those goals, with assistance too.

……and with a tip ‘o the hat, a fine cigar and a dram of old single malt to Lineholder, we find Hillary Clinton in an interview with ABC’s bestest-evah jihad supporter Christiane Amanpour saying flat out that the Israeli Settlements are ‘Illegitimate’.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Israeli settlements “illegitimate” shortly before the United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning continued Israeli settlement expansion as illegal.

The full Amanpour interview with Clinton — focusing on the uprisings in the Arab world, how the U.S. is redefining its strategic interests there and what she thinks this new Arab People Power means for the U.S. — will air Sunday on “This Week.”

I’m still supposed to stay toned down, remain civil and be respectful or be banned ?

Here’s today’s probably not the last and definitely not least regarding “Palestine”:

Palestinians are going to enjoy a ‘day of rage’ against America.

Now I’m confused.  I thought that was every day, every waking hour and even whilst asleep.

Palestinian leaders called for a “day of rage” Saturday in the streets of West Bank cities after the US vetoed a UN condemnation of Israeli settlements Friday.

Yasser Abed Rabbo, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said the Palestinians would take their resolution to the UN General Assembly.

“Our decision today is to go to the General Assembly of the United Nations to adopt a resolution condemning settlements and asserting their illegality before returning to the Security Council to present a proposed condemnation of settlements,” he told AFP.  “The American veto will not prevent us from appealing to international institutions and will not stop our desire for freedom and independence.”

Hey Palestinians, didn’t you get the memo ?  The Obama administration is on your side.

See the articles and statements above if you don’t believe me.

They voted ‘no’ for the most convoluted of reasons available, because it was a yes or no thing and there was no “present” vote allowed.

Y’all have a nice day (of rage), ya hear ?

Bahrain.

Be forewarned:  This is extremely graphic video footage of people violently dying at the hands of their own government.  View at your own risk.

Bahrain’s army shoots unarmed protesters.

Peaceful protesters were mowed down as they were walking, armed only with the national flag.

Peace-loving at it’s finest.

But everything’s peachy-keen now – overnight, it’s all good – because Bahrain ordered the military off the streets.

Troop removal comes after Shi’ite opposition says they will not carry out talks with Bahrain gov’t until “tanks are off the streets.”

MANAMA, Bahrain —The deputy chief of Bahrain’s armed forces ordered the military to withdraw from the streets of the capital.

Saturday’s decision came after the military opened fire on protesters trying to reach the site that was once the centerpiece of their uprising against the Gulf nation’s rulers.

Please remember, there are Saudi Arabian troops in Bahrain and our own Fifth Fleet is based in the nation.

U.K.

An article from The Daily Telegraph.

Britain revokes arms licences to Bahrain and Libya.

Britain said on Friday it was revoking more than 50 arms export licences for Bahrain and Libya where security forces have cracked down on protests and several people have been killed.

The revoked licences cover items such as tear gas and ammunition that could be used to suppress demonstrations.

Could be used…… Could be ?!?

Hey UK…… Thanks loads.

Really.

Nice to know you’ve outfitted the enemy of all civilization with ‘goodies’.

Egypt And The Iranian Naval Vessels.

Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no……

It’s like a dime-store novel with a billion dollar and quite possibly genocidal ending.

Contradicting whatever went on about nine hours ago in the above link, the Egyptian military has NOT approved transit of 2 Iran ships.

An Egyptian source from the Suez Canal Authority said that the authority did not yet receive the military approval necessary to allow  two Iranian naval vessels to cross the canal north to the Mediterranean, Reuters reported.

The source said that the two ships neither reached the southern entrance of the canal, nor the waiting area. The source added that the approval could be received at any moment.

State-run news agency MENA had said Friday that authorities in Egypt approved the request to let the navy ships cross, after Iranian diplomats offered assurances that the two ships won’t have weapons or nuclear or chemical material.

……”assurances that the two ships won’t have nucl……”

Hey, I’m just sayin’…… It’s in their book, look it up.

Don’t it just give ya the warm ‘n fuzzies ?

Fills you full of hope for change.

Look up in the sky.  There’s that elusive magic prayer-rug-ridin’ rainbow belching unicorn !

Libya.

Take this as you will.

Rights group: 84 dead in Libyan protests.

Sorry, but when the basis for reporting on what’s going on there are the organization “Human Rights Watch” and the Libyan state-run media, I’m kind of skittish about posting information as bona-fide absolute fact.

I and many others don’t trust HRW at all and it doesn’t take much to realize their agenda coincides with confirmed-as-involved leftists like Code Pink and the rest of the usual suspects as ‘assistants’ in many things going on and in bed with The Muslim Brotherhood.

As for the Libyan state-run media:  Yeah, right.

Well, that’s the start of today.

We’ll see what shakes out from under the dirt and out from the corners of Hell.
