Does Israel Support Hawaiian Colonization?

Did President Obama finally stand up to Netanyahu and defy the Israeli right-wing?

The Obama administration abstained from (voting for or against) United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334(2016) reaffirming Israeli settlements have no legal validity in Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, and that Israel as occupying Power is obliged to abide by the Geneva Convention. The resolution passed 14-0-1.

Netanyahu supposedly is livid at Obama. More likely this is all a setup so Obama can soon be appointed an official "Envoy to the Middle East" under the veneer he'll resist Israeli bullying. Obama's Administration at its toughest has been a slightly disobedient lapdog while a key funder & servile friend of Israel. For nearly eight years, regardless of commitments, the two-state solution has made no progress. Occupied territories in the Middle East are politically unstable; civilian populations are suffering. It has seemed among the big powers, the quest for sustainable peace has been abandoned. Obama is accused (link) throughout his administration of turning his back on the large non-Jewish civilian population forced to live under Israeli occupation.

If Netanyahu is truly displeased with the USA, he can easily draw global attention to the American occupation of Hawai'i.

Otherwise, this is all a deceptive show.
