IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY December 25th 2016: Domestic Israeli Rules Have No Sway Anywhere Else in the World

The international community is signaling that no creation of purported facts on the ground, in the form of settlement construction, will change expectations of an Israeli withdrawal as part of a peace agreement.
 
The settlements may be part of the domestic Israeli rules of the game, but they have no sway anywhere else in the world. Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights have not received any international support.
 
By the same token, the Knesset could legislate that there are 25 hours in a day, and it would have the same effect for the rest of the world.
