Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday that the Trump administration would ease its stance on U.S. policy toward Israel, rejecting a 1978 State Department legal opinion that categorically calls Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank “inconsistent with international law.”

In an address at the State Department, Pompeo stated that the decision, which is a major boon to Israel and is sure to spark outrage from Palestinians, was not made lightly.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The conclusion that we will no longer recognize as per se inconsistent with international law is based on the unique facts, history, and circumstances prevented by the establishment of civilian settlements in the West Bank,” he said, adding that the administration “carefully” studied all sides of the legal debate surrounding the stance.

Politico further reported that the decision “was a reversal from the Obama administration, which in December 2016 allowed the U.N. Security Council to adopt a resolution declaring settlement activity a “flagrant violation” of international law with “no legal validity.””

    All of that stance was just another bow to our adversaries from Obama.
