PM Theresa May Cosies Up to Trump And Attacks US Over ‘Attack’ On Israel’s ‘Extreme’ Government

Theresa May

Mrs Theresa May last night took the unprecedented step of slapping down the US for an “attack” on Israel.

In the latest apparent bid to woo Donald Trump, a UK Government spokesman criticised outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry.

He said the Democrat was wrong on Wednesday to have questioned the “composition” of the democratically elected Israeli government.

The row stems from a UN Security Council resolution last week which passed a resolution against Israeli settlements on the West Bank. Instead of vetoing the resolution, the US abstained.

On Wednesday John Kerry insisted it was only right for the US to be honest with an ally and friend.

But he said Prime Minister Netanyahu’s ruling coalition was the most right wing in Israeli history and the agenda was driven by the “most extreme elements”.

Yesterday, a UK Government spokesman told Jewish News: “We do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of a democratically elected government of an ally.”

The spokesman added the peace talks between Israel and Palestine had to go beyond settlements.

“The Government believes that negotiations will only succeed when they are conducted by the between the two parties, supported by the international community.”

Before John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday, Donald Trump had taken to Twitter to urge Israel to “stay strong” until he assumed office on January 20th.

The President-elect has made his support for Israel be known.

In a blast at the Obama regime, he added: “We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect.”
