“It’s a Hot Mess.” - Israel, Palestine and the U.N. Resolution - Ep. 7

December 30, 2016

The United Nations passed a resolution in December 2016 that basically says, "Hey, Israel, stop building settlements in disputed Palestinian territory. And you, Palestine, stop the acts of terrorism. Now both of you start talking, create two states and make peace like you said you would years ago." We go into more background about the Middle East Conflict, what U.S. Secretary of State Kerry said about the U.N. resolution, what President-elect Trump Tweeted, and Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu's reaction. We also read the United Kingdom's statement about the matter in an outrageous English accent.
