Netanyahu`s defiance of Security Council`s resolution is madness

Last Friday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that calls for a two-State solution based on the 1967 demarcation lines which clearly states that 'establishments of Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity'. Very true indeed, however, it was Israel's offensive way of response which is inexcusable.

 Israel has summoned the ambassadors of UN Security Council member states that voted in favour of a resolution condemning its age long settlement sites. Such audacious response shown to UN Security Council states' collective opinion clearly expresses Israel's utter defiance of the world community.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not stop there, he accused Obama administration of carrying out "disgraceful anti-Israel maneuver".

Rather curiously, apart from the fourteen envoys, the US envoy was not, however, summoned, yet, the summoning of Security Council representatives evidently signals Israel's determination not to stop the illegal settlements in occupied territory of Palestine. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's branding of the resolution as 'a shameful blow to Israel' is a clear indication of his mounting arrogance too. Amazingly, equipped with American support and weaponry, it is now audaciously insulting America for abstaining from opposing the resolution against Israel. Not long before, he behaved offensively with President Obama. The million dollar question is -- how could the Jewish leader amass such strength, and that too at American cost? Or has the Americans knowingly created its own Frankenstein?

In an indirect way, to Israel's benefits, the resolution contains no sanctions then what was Netanyahu's actual problem to accept the two-state resolution based on 1967 plan? Nevertheless, the dirty truth behind Israel's enforced illegal settlements on Palestinian territory occupied by war is not unknown to Netanyahu, and he must admit the unlawful settlements in the Palestinian territory including in the East of Jerusalem.

Observing carefully, the Israeli PM's defiance has not been directed at the US only, but also against all UN Security Council members. Challenging the UN's majority opinion on illegal Jewish establishments once again proves -- the Jewish leadership is unwilling to a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian statehood.    
   
The Jewish Frankenstein has steadily garnered strength for nearly fifty years and if now it doesn't pay heed to its wrong doings -- challenges the United States which has empowered it financially and militarily -- who is to be blamed? Prime Minister Netanyahu feels emboldened further by the election of Mr Trump as the next President of the United States. Both together may bring disaster both for the USA and Israel.
 
Prime Minister Netanyahu as a power-drunk egomaniac is a threat to Israel's best interests. He is a war monger and wants to show his military might -- no matter what the consequences are for Israel and the world. In the words of an analyst of New York Times "It does not take a lot to imagine an American move that could provoke violence on the ground." We add to confirm that such an American move shall make existence of Israel extremely precarious.
