Arlene from Israel: Anger, and Not Panic.

By last Thursday, Egypt’s President Sisi had withdrawn sponsorship of Security Council Resolution 2334, which says that all “settlements” in the “Palestinian territory” including eastern Jerusalem constitute a flagrant violation under international law, and calls for cessation of all “settlement activities.”  Sisi was responding to pressure from Netanyahu and from …
