    The UN recently passed a resolution condemning Israel's Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
    The UK voted for this resolution; the USA abstained.

    In response to Israel's government (which condemned the USA) US Secretary of State
    John Kerry defended the USA's refusal to veto the resolution.
    Then UK Prime Minister Theresa May criticized John Kerry.

    Evidently, Theresa May's pandering to Israel or to the extremely pro-Israeli Donald Trump.

    And in other news: The Frogs are looking to add some important pieces along the defensive line in the 2017 class, and are looking towards the East Coast to do so.

    Go Frogs! 😀

    Theresa May id a conservative nutjob.

    Pro-EU but stupendously so power hungry she took the Brexit job, even though she thinks it's madness.

    The only reason the Tories voted for the resolution is because they thought the US would veto it.
    Pretty much the same reason Israel came into existence in the first bloody place
