John Kerry is waiting for the Trump administration to repeal the UN vote. It looks like he is picking a side in the Israel vs Obama feud.

Secretary of State John Kerry will leave the department in less than a month. But, he gave tough criticism over the Israeli sentiments. He cautioned that the two-state solution to the continuing conflict with Palestine is in danger.

Kerry defended the Israel vs Obama issue. Particularly, he referred to the decision of the US to abstain from a vote on and not veto to a UN resolution.

The resolution condemns Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as one intended at “preserving the two-state solution.” The aim of the two-state solution is, so far, the only way to achieve a reasonable and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

John Kerry’s Views on the Two-State Solution

The two-state solution has also been the declared goals of their leaders and supported by many international diplomats and politicians, according to a report from the BBC.

Kerry also added in his speech that Israel’s prime minister supports a two-state solution, reports CNN. But, his current party is an extreme group and Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state could be at risk.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed disappointment with Kerry’s statement. He views Kerry’s speech as unbalanced.

The future of diplomacy in the region is unstable. But, France is also organizing a peace conference in mid-January before Obama leaves office.

Donald Trump’s Plans for Israel

As for the President-elect Donald Trump, he clearly said that he has no plans of pushing Israel to the side.  Using his Twitter account, Trump said that “we cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect.”

Trump’s unconventional channels to communicate, especially on international matters, have gained more critics than support. But PM Netanyahu extended his gratitude by also replying to Trump’s tweet of his support to Israel.
