Blinken Says Expanding Israeli West Bank Settlements Violates International Law

Blinken is Jewish and when he went to Israel after October 7, he said “I come to you as a Jew.”

He’s also said that there can’t be a two-state solution unless Netanyahu agrees to it, which is a total admission that Bibi dictates US foreign policy.

He makes these hand-wringing statements to distract from the fact he is not an American, does not represent Americans, and has no interest in our national interests.

New York Post:

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated that any expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank would violate international law — a reversal of previous Trump-era policy.

It’s been longstanding US policy under Republican and Democratic administrations alike that new settlements are counterproductive to reaching enduring peace,” Blinken said at a press conference in Buenos Aires Friday, according to CNN.

They’re also inconsistent with international law. Our administration maintains a firm opposition to settlement expansion. And in our judgment, this only weakens — it doesn’t strengthen — Israel’s security,” he insisted.

This statement means less than nothing.

It’s slurp for the slurpers who actually think things that politicians say relate to their actions.
