Title updated — “Gaza War and Destruction of Palestinians”
FM Wopke Hoekstra (talented McKinsey scholar reminds me of Robert McNamara, same IQ vs EQ deficit) ... why place such a financial a$$hole on a position of diplomacy, foreign affairs with no knowledge of history ... on the job training.
Visually framing the Gaza War of 2014: The Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Twitter
Words of appreciation for Israel in their support to win the presidency and defeat the yellow beaked Democrats who signed off on the worst deal ever, the Iran nuclear deal. Our great ally so dearly opposed that deal, the US will make amends.

Trump promised peace in the Middle East while sitting at the table with Taliban leaders in Doha Qatar to sign the retreat of US Forces from Afghanistan. Leaving the scene and the world in turmoil. Will he return in 2024?

'Transparency needed about Dutch-Israeli connections' | Erasmus Univ. |
On 21 January 2022, a Freedom of Information or FOI request
was submitted to Dutch universities by The Rights Forum concerning ties between Dutch and Israeli universities and Israel lobby organisations. Shortly thereafter, Amnesty international released a lengthy report that outlined a system of apartheid directed against Palestinians, the latest in a string of reports by Palestinian, Israel and other international organisations showing a regime of systemic, institutional discrimination inside Israel and occupied Palestinian territories.

Netanyahu Ousted From Power | May 28, 2021 |
When America and U.S. Congress can"t act on eroding democratic principles and women's rights at home, do not expect the global community to follow your demands. Stop the bullying and dominant militarism, strife for multipolar institutions and invest in peace, not war.

The World According to Dutch FM Halbe Zijlstra | Feb 12th, 2018 |
Dutch PM Mark Rutte has been on the roll with accusations of Russian disinformation about the MH-17 crash, election meddling and fake news through RT. It took awhile to form a new cabinet after last year's general election, his party nominated its chairman for the task of Foreign Minister. Someone with no experience in diplomacy and foreign affairs. Except of course his meeting with Russia's president Putin in his dacha. Well more or less ...
Israel Rejects Dutch Balanced I-P Policy| Dec 8, 2013 |
PM Netanyahu and FM Liberman must be frustrated not to find a Geert Wilders and Uri Rosenthal setting Dutch foreign policy vs Israel. Dutch PM Rutte, a right-wing liberal from VVD, has embarrassed himself by promising Shimon Peres he would block EU labeling provisions on Israeli goods coming from Palestinian territory. Rutte and FM Timmermans (PvdA) are on a three-day visit to Israel and the West-Bank. Major conflicts with Israel are spoiling the Dutch agenda for an even-handed approach to the occupied territories.
Dutch cabinet isn't united in its approach towards the I-P issue and Rutte stated as such. He doesn't want a proxy-war in his cabinet between pro-Israel (VVD) and pro-Palestinian (Labor-PvdA) ministers.
In the footsteps of FM Wopke Hoekstra …
Reading from the stale NATO playbook, nothing to add …
A bare minimum on the death of American-Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, certainly no words of condemnation … what an a$$hole he is … chickenshit from Holland.
Astounding … did his advisors write “West Bank” and not Judea and Samaria?
Some similarity with the illegal occupation of Crimea and the Donbas …

No Wopke, we don’t have shared Judeo-Christian values with our economic partners in the Middle East.
