Trump’s Rex Tillerson Says Obama’s John Kerry “Quite Troubling” on US-Israel Alliance. @aaronkleinshow. @breitbartjerusalem

Rex Tillerson condemned the Obama administration’s decision not to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution critical of Israel’s development of settlements on the West Bank.

The former ExxonMobil chief said the resolution was “not helpful” and “undermines” the conditions for peace talks to continue. He described Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s subsequent speech criticizing Israel as “quite troubling.”

Tillerson said it was important for the United States to recommit to its alliance with Israel, which he said “is, was and always has been our most important ally” in the Middle East.

TEL AVIV – Israeli defense officials here have noted a sharp increase in Palestinian rock-throwing attacks since the United Nations Security Council passed an anti-Israel resolution on December 23, 2016 calling the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem “occupied Palestinian territories.”

Avi Issacharoff at the Times of Israel notes:

In September 346 rock-throwing attacks were recorded, in October 375, in November 420, and in December 344. Most of the December attacks occurred in the final week of the month. In the first week of January there were 169 recorded attacks, a pace that, if maintained, would lead to almost 700 attacks by the end of the month.

Issacharoff writes that the increase in rock attacks could be linked to exam season in Palestinian high schools, although a similar increase was not recorded in previous years.
