“I hope that the partners who were reluctant will not be reluctant anymore,” said Fabius, referring to the United States, which has traditionally shielded its ally Israel from any action at the United Nations.

The United States has said it would “reassess” its options on US-Israel relations and Middle East diplomacy after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a stand last week against Palestinian statehood during his election campaign.

    And France is doing so well at dealing with its own national suicide brought on by its massive Muslim population. I am sure they are just wanting to share and spread it around, especially when it comes down to that “shitty little country” called Israel and those disgusting Jews.
