Iran has taken over Lebanon, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday morning, issuing a warning about Tehran’s growing regional dominance before ending a five-day trip to London.
Netanyahu was in Britain to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, but made use of the trip to persuade the British government to take steps to halt Iranian aggression.

The EU chastised Israel over the Regulation Law’s passage and postponed indefinitely a meeting between EU and Israeli officials, seen as a step towards mending strained relations.
By David Rosenberg

London prevents the EU Foreign Affairs Council’s adoption of Obama/Kerry’s supported Paris conference closing memorandum.
Britain prevented the European Union Foreign Affairs Council from adopting the closing statement from the Paris peace conference.
Britain’s action, reported by Haaretz citing European and Israeli diplomats, comes a day after Britain refused to sign the closing statement at the peace conference in Paris. Britain had sent a low-level diplomat to the conference as an observer to indicate its displeasure with the proceedings.
In the face of Obama’s actions at the UNSC last week, Israel has a new set of ‘protectors’ from the built-in anti-Israel bias: UK’s PM May – US’s Trump – Australia’s PM Turnbull
Australia also distanced itself from the closing statement and did not sign it. Continue Reading »

The British government takes an unprecedented step of criticizing U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech for its hyperbolic focus on Israeli settlements and being otherwise, ‘inappropriate.’
A spokesman for UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s government strongly criticized US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday, for being overly critical of Israeli settlements during his remarks yesterday on the Middle East peace process.
John Kerry’s more than hour long tirade on settlements was based on falsehoods, distortions, omissions and false moral equivalencies, rendering it entirely one-sided, hence, unrealistic and an obstacle to peace. – YouTube screenshot
“We do not believe that the way to negotiate peace is by focusing on only one issue, in this case the construction of settlements, when clearly the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians is so deeply complex,” said the spokesman. Continue Reading »
