Dismal news that:

“The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements is not, per se, inconsistent with international law,” Mr Pompeo told reporters at the State Department.

Yet it was bleakly amusing to see in some reports the US described as an ‘honest broker’ hitherto. That’s not even close to correct. Yet even rhetorical shifts have a consequence in these matters. And of course for the Trump administration it shores up elements of his voter base.

“Israeli colonial settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, are not only illegal under international law, they are war crimes. And the statement of Mr. Pompeo, the secretary of state of the United States, is absolutely rejected and must be condemned.”
