Occupy Palestine: Obama vs. UNESCO
 
Some occupations never change, including Obama's and H. Clinton's job as enforcers of Israel's commitment to war crimes:
Quote:

"Today's vote by the member states of UNESCO to admit Palestine as member is regrettable, premature and undermines our shared goal of a comprehensive just and lasing peace in the Middle East," said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

"The United States will refrain from making contributions to UNESCO," she said.

Predictable enough the Isaeli's response was to announce more settlements and a freezing of tax revenue for this unilateral provocation.

This reporter, Matt Lee (not the bhead Matthew Lee), puts it to the State Department.

Yes, the collective punishment of the Palestinian people for daring to join UNESCO is called the "price tag" movement. The US is a co-conspirator.

Meanwhile, the coalition Israeli government (Netanyahu and Barak) are in firm agreement on ba-ba-bombing Iran.

Quote:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are trying to muster a majority in the cabinet in favor of military action against Iran, a senior Israeli official has said. According to the official, there is a "small advantage" in the cabinet for the opponents of such an attack.
