Obama was elected to be president until the next president is inaugurated. That is some weeks away. Until then he has the same full mandate to carry out whatever legal acts a US president is entitled to carry out as he has had for the last eight years. President-elect Trump's mandate does not kick in until his inauguration. That's the way it works. All the rest is the politics of democracy, Keith, which you purport to be a staunch defender of. I'm really happy to be able to explain this extremely elementary stuff to you, Keith, really I am. I should also like to remind you that the US did not vote in favour of the UN resolution. Gosh, I know how annoyed you must feel as an apologist for that rotten regime in Israel. But, in this case, in spite of your whingeing, no-one has done anything wrong. So tuff titty, Keith.

It seems to me that the Democrats are making as much mischief as possible before they are turfed out of office, leaving a huge mess for Mr Trump to inherit.

The allegations regarding Russia and the change of policy on Israel are designed for that purpose and no other.

This is the man who met Mr Trump after the election and promised to do everything he could to make the change over as easy as possible.

It is dishonest to question it (you have actually denied it in the past) without proof - if it is inaccurate it is your job to disprove it.
Now what are you saying - he didn't say it, he didn't mean it - it has been made up by a leading Zionist - what?
Now - your proof - or do we have to take the word of the Israelis again - I have no reason to disbelieve it to be genuine - why do you question it ?
Once more you call me dishonest, yet you provide no proof of anything you claim and you admit you are only putting the other side - the claims of a war criminal.

I grasp it Steve, but his Party just lost the election.
He has no genuine mandate from the people any more.
Just a technicality.
Why has he always used the veto to protect Israel for the last eight years and only changed that policy now?
Because he will never need the people's vote again so up them.

Jim,
Your Ben Gurion quote is unlikely to be true, as you well know because I have explained it to you many times before.
It is dishonest to post it as if it was accepted.

"If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural, we have taken their country." In fact, according to Nahum Goldmann, Ben-Gurion allegedly said this to him. Goldmann was an adversary of Ben-Gurion, and he came out with this alleged quote, verbatim, in his book published two decades later (The Jewish Paradox, 1978), five years after Ben-Gurion died. There was no recording of the quote, and Ben-Gurion was no longer around to dispute it.

It is just that, up until now, none ever has taken advantage of that window of un-mandated opportunity.

"I don't understand your optimism. Why should the Arabs make peace? If I was an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country. Sure God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been antisemitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?
David Ben Gurion
Ben Gurion also insisted that the Jews did not wish to drive the Arabs from their land
We do not wish and do not need to expel Arabs and take their places.
The mindless repetition of "antisemitism" doesn't get away from the fact that the Arab lands have been reduced to little more than ghettos
Israel continues to steal land and ETHNICALLY CLEANSE the Palestinians and Bedouins and in order to do so, their regimes have turned Israel into a FASCIST STATE
They have done more to dewstroy the Jewish dream than the Nazis could ever have done.

Err, Keith, US presidents are elected for a full four-year term. Obama is the president and Trump is not. He will not be the "outgoing president" until Trump is inaugurated. There has been no change of policy. It is not written down anywhere that the US has a policy of automatically vetoing resolutions on Israel. Tradition does not equal policy does not equal mandate and we should applaud Obama for recognising that. Takes courage, actually. There is no express mandate to treat Israel in the same way whatever happens. The trouble with you, Keith, is that you cheerfully embrace democracy when things are going your way but when things look a little adverse, though no less democratic, you come out with a pack of lies. Sour grapes with knobs on sums you up nicely.

So Farage won the popular vote. Can't argue with that statistic. Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million. Hardly the "rejection" you lyingly claimed in earlier posts. Can't argue with that statistic. She was nobbled by an electoral college system that sorely needs sorting out. Let's hear you arguing with that. And a bit less of your "rules are rules" guff.

Of course Israel has not stolen any land from anybody that is just your typical anti-Semitic trope.

Shimon Klein nails the reasons why there is no peace agreement and none forthcoming in the foreseeable future:

Kerry failed to enlarge on the reasons why negotiations failed.There are no partners for peace negotiations. The Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas has its hands tied by Hamas, who is against any form of negotiation with Israel. They view Israel as occupied territory since its establishment. If Abbas signs a peace treaty with Israel it will be "off with his head" as in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,

Apart from that, all that Abbas can do is to utter hostile rhetoric against Israel on its intransigence. By doing this, he can drum up support against Israel and thus save his own skin by not signing any peace treaty with Israel.

Meanwhile both Hamas and the PA are raking in the cash from foreign donations for the Palestinians into their leaderships' foreign bank accounts. They plead poverty blaming Israel for its intransigence and lack of progress while they themselves are becoming wealthy under the occupation. This is their livelihood. The eternal negotiator since the Madrid Conference of 1991, Saeb Erekat, is a professional negotiator and not doing badly out of it financially.

John Kerry seems to be devoid of reality and this reflects in his departure speech. He said the right things that are true and really indisputable. He condemned terror in general terms as if it's the settlements that promote it.

Even if there were no settlements in the occupied territory as was the case prior to the June 1967 War, an excuse will be found as it was then to destroy Israel. The problem between Israel and the Palestinians is existential. One needs to read the hate propaganda against Israel even before the Six Day War of 1967 to understand that. The Palestinian education system is full of anti-Israel hate as well as being anti-Semitic. The conflict is not only about land but about religion as well. In this respect, Daesh and Hamas share similar goals. It is unfortunate that Kerry did not touch on this subject in his speech as it really is the root course of the conflict. The settlements in the occupied territories is an added factor of course but the basic hate for Israel even existed before the occupation.

He was expressing his personal opinions about Labour and making comparisons with his own Party. Anyone is entitled to do that.

The other thing was a dramatic and contentious change in US government policy from an outgoing President with no mandate to make such a change.

UK government has criticised the old administration over this.

"Theresa May rebukes US for 'inappropriate' attack on Israel "

"We do not… believe that the way to negotiate peace is by focusing on only one issue, in this case the construction of settlements, when clearly the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians is so deeply complex," Mrs May's spokesman said.
"And we do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically elected government of an ally"

All the "peace proposals" that have been rejected by the Palestinians have entailed maintaining the situation where land stolen by Israel remains in Israeli hands and those millions of exiles stay exiled.
There has never been a situation in modern history where those driven out by invaders should remain exiled and those who drove them out should retain their property.
Registered Palestinian refugees are calculated at 5 million; those not registered are incalculable.
No sensible Government would accept that position

Well you see, bobad, yer man in the link fails to realise that THE problem in the Middle East is not "Israel" but the fact that the Israeli regime is happy to be the proxy West in the region and more than happy to have a massive amount of US military and political aid. The upshot is that the Russians have adopted Islamist states in the region as their proxy. The place is a powder keg, not least because Israel has nukes, and Israel is in the thick of it. There will be no peace in the region until the Israeli regime is brought to heel, made to realise that Israel is a tiny country in a diverse region of very big neighbours. The UN has targeted Israel time and time again simply because the US has protected Israel from condemnation time and time again. Open your eyes. And I'd point out to you that yer man is in vehement disagreement with both you and Keith:

"In truth, I believe Israeli settlements to be illegal under international law, built on occupied land, and that Netanyahu has been uncooperative while in office..."

He is also deluded about a future Palestinian state which contains Israeli settlements. The settlements are on the best land and their occupants would be by far the wealthiest in the new state. Anyone who thinks that is viable, from either side of the argument, is in cloud cuckoo land. The region is heading inexorably for a single state. Ultimately, as I heard someone saying today, the choice for Israel will then be either to give up democracy or give up being a Jewish state. Israel's hubris-filled leaders are being incredibly short-sighted. A two-state solution requires settlement land to be handed back. That's the reality whatever your personal ideology tells you. And reality also dictates that it will never happen.

"I defy you to quote me doing it."
You said the Jewish members of Parliament would not take their accusations further because of the love for their party
I've put this up twice already and have referred to it at least ten times - you have never denied it - you are not really going to start now, are you?
"Why will you not discuss the issues instead of just attacking me?"
I must have put up several dozen links, all pertaining to our argument - those you haven't dismissed as propaganda you have ignored
You, in return, have put up nothing.
I don't lie - you have never proven a lie by me - it has become your standard defence, just as Israel's has become "antisemitism"
You are a very stupid man to deny something that you have put up for all to see.
You are a dishonest, reactionary bore
I really do think we have finished here (unless, of course, you would like to put up proof of the Antisemitism you have claimed)
Go live with your Christian concience Keith - I'm damned if I could

Yo, Bubo!! Apparently the majoity of U.S. Jews are serlf-hating anti-semites by your definition!

"There's a very clear values clash going on," said Rabbi Jill Jacobs, the executive director of T'ruah, a rabbinical human rights organization. "On the one hand, we have a small but vocal minority of American Jews who believe that supporting Israel means supporting the right-wing agenda, the current government. And on the other, there is a larger percentage of American Jews who are committed to Israel and committed to democracy and want to see it as a safe place that reflects our values."

"These days the right wing has a louder voice in Israel, and, in some ways, it also has a louder voice in America, because the people who are most actively and publicly Jewish, sectarian Jewish, share the right wing point of view, and are very pro-settlement," said Samuel Heilman, a sociology professor of at Queens College specializing in Jewish life. "But it's not the mainstream point of view."

Steven M. Cohen, a research professor at Hebrew Union College and a consultant to a recent Pew study of American Jews, said that Mr. Kerry's speech represents the viewpoints of most American Jews. "On survey after survey, American Jews are opposed to Jewish settlement expansion. They tend to favor a two-state solution and their political identities are liberal or moderate," he said.

By the way,
Will you please stop saying I do not want to know the other side of the story
I grew up in a household that was devoted to the dream of Israel (I know Mike G. M. grew up with the same dream)
Both of us came to the same conclusion that what has happened under various right-wing regimes has destroyed that dream.
Israel has fallen into the hands of people who are behaving just like those who sent six million Jews to the gas-chambers.
The basic difference between you and me is that your support is for those people while mine is for the welfare of the Jewish people as a whole.
I don't believe in the "self-haring Jew" slogan Israel has adopted   - you accused me of inventing it – now you just ignore it

"Why do you not want to have their side of the story given Jim?"
I have read their side of the story - it sums up as "we didn't do it"
You do not give their side of the story - you dismiss everything that contradicts what they say as "propaganda"
That is not debate - it's stonewalling.
"You accuse us of antisemitism,"
At one time or another, you, Bobad and Teribs have accused me and others of antisemitism, yet you are the only one to have openly stereotyped Jews in an antisemitic manner - the only one - I defy youto produce another example.
Jewish plots of the type that accuse Jews of keeping silent over the type of antisemitism that is claimed of being carried out by Labour Party members is comparable to the Nationalist Socialists of Germany's depiction of the Jews as a secretive threat to their country - that is how you have described Jewish parliamentarians - suppressing the facts of antisemitism.
You choose to put the well-being of the Israeli regime above that of the Jewish people as a whole.
I don't tell lies Keith and I'm sick and tired of being accused of doing so by two people whose track record of dishonesty is breathtaking.
Debate decently or stay away - you wreck threads in your desire to say "You lose, I win" - that is not what this forum is about
If you think this is lie - go count the numbert of times you have said it.

Who believes all that stuff. Not any decent democratic government however much they disapprove of the settlements.
Just some of the most despicable regimes in the world.

You are an arch supporter of State Terrorism
You accuse us of antisemitism, yet you blame British Jewish politicians of refusing to speak publicly on antisemitism "for the love of their party - 'Jewish plots' such as you claim exists in Britain ate typical of antisemitism.
Your interest has always been the extremist - on its way to being a FASCIST regime,
PART TWO
You are happy to vilify Jews who don't share your affection for this extremist state
Your blind faith in these thugs has become legendary on this forum.
And now you are besmearing a man who is probably the most liberally fair man to have ever served as head of a Western state because he thinks that Israel should stop stealing the land one of Israel's early leaders admitted to stealing:
Why should the Arabs make peace? If I was an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country. Sure God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been antisemitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?.
You are really prepared to wade through sewers for these people

A shameful act by a petulant president who wouldn't stop the genocide in Syria but sees fit, in a final act of revenge against Netanyahu and Trump, to allow to pass, by a notoriously anti-Israel UN, a resolution to deny Jews houses on their ancestral land. Here's what the hypocrite had to say on the issue of UN resolutions against Israel during his previous re-election campaign:

Peace is hard work. Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the United Nations -- if it were that easy, it would have been accomplished by now. Ultimately, it is the Israelis and the Palestinians who must live side by side. Ultimately, it is the Israelis and the Palestinians -- not us --- who must reach agreement on the issues that divide them: on borders and on security, on refugees and Jerusalem.

The controversial thing was the routine and unconditional veto that the US, which does not even value the UN, gifted Israel every time there was condemnation from the rest of the UN. That controversy has now been resolved, not once and for all obviously, but it's the right move. Morally right, Keith. Morally right and bloody overdue. Your attitude as an apologist for the extreme right-wing regime in Israel is just sour grapes.

No.
USA is the only country that has changed its view on this, and outgoing Presidents are not supposed to do that.
How does saying that make me "declaring for Trump?"
Just another lie about me Jim.

It may be an unwritten rule that outgoing Presidents do not behave like that, but none previously has.

like your Labour antisemitism, it doesn't exist

According to the entire NEC, Sadiq Khan, the leader of the Scottish party and many others, it does exist Jim.
Why would anyone take you seriously against all that Jim?
