The Obama administration is going out with a bang and not a good way. After screwing over Israel by refusing to veto a pathetic UNSC resolution, John Kerry is in the midst of giving a speech where he’s apparently deciding the best thing to do, is kick Israel when they’re down.
The hypocrisy is astonishing. Israel is the only democratic country in the entire Middle East, and yet the Obama administration treats them with disdain and goes with kid gloves when it comes to Iran. Kerry just said this in his speech:
Kerry: "If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or Democratic. It cannot be both"

When I saw this starting to fly by my Twitter timeline I almost couldn’t believe it. Dan McLaughlin makes two great points here:
Imagine an American Secretary of State declaring that a nation can be Islamic or democratic, but cannot be both.

This from Nathan Wurtzel as well:
Funny how the only Democratic state in the region is, in fact, majority Jewish. https://t.co/EVTsWdUkXh

The two state solution is a complete joke and the Obama administration is too blind or too stupid to realize it will never happen so long as Palestinians refuse to believe Israel has the right to exist.
January 20th cannot get here fast enough.
