With THIS timing? You KNOW it’s an attempt to hamstring Trump.
What’s the matter? Social elites haven’t made a big enough mess of international affairs in the last few years? They are doubling down.
What could POSSIBLY go wrong in this scenario:
“France will convene some 70 countries on Jan. 15 for a Middle East peace conference in Paris…and will invite the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to meet separately at its conclusion. France has repeatedly tried to breathe new life into the peace process this year, holding a preliminary conference in June where the United Nations, European Union, United States and major Arab countries gathered to discuss proposals without the Israelis or Palestinians present.
The plan was to hold a follow-up conference before the end of the year with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas involved to see whether the two sides could be brought back to negotiations and revive moribund peace talks. Netanyahu had repeatedly rejected the conference proposal.
“France is still determined to hold a conference in Paris to reaffirm the necessity of a two-state solution,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told journalists. “January 15 is the date that has been fixed and 70 countries are invited. We are not going to give up now.” A French diplomatic source said invitations would also be sent to Netanyahu and Abbas to meet French president Francois Hollande to outline the results of the conference.”–Reuters
Why the hurry?
“France is still determined to hold a conference in Paris to reaffirm the necessity of a two-state solution,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told journalists.
…The source said that with uncertainty surrounding how the next US administration would handle the issue it was more important than ever to deal with the issue.
“You can see that it’s even more justified in this context,” the source said. —Reuters [emphasis added]
Oh… THAT’s why.
On a planet basically aligned against Israel (the lone Democratic state in the region), 70 countries will get together to decide what to do about the situation between Israel and its bellicose neighbor. With NEITHER party present.
And then the FRENCH government will announce their decision to Israel and Palestine?
How about USA, Russia and China get together and decide which city in France to assign to the new migrants that have flooded into Europe? Does THAT sound fair?
Maybe Paris. They’re all there anyway.
Because that’s what’s going to happen here.
About 70 years ago, the fate of Jews was in the hands of Europe.
It didn’t end well. What happened to ‘never forget’?
