Obama administration treachery extends to undermining the Trump administration's Israeli policy

Times of Israel:
Transcript claims to show US worked with Palestinians on UN resolution

Report published in Egypt has Kerry and Rice advising senior Palestinians on strategy at UN and after Trump takes power

...
The transcript showed Kerry and Rice advising the Palestinians not to make any provocative moves when US President-elect Donald Trump takes office on January 20, calling him dangerous.

They warned against such steps as ending security cooperation with Israel, pursuing legal action against Israeli officials in the ICC, or dissolving the Palestinian Authority.

They also said Trump’s administration was likely to adopt a policy on the Israel-Palestinian conflict that would be totally different to that of previous administrations going back to 1967.

When asked how the Palestinians would react if Trump carried out his promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, Erekat reportedly said the Palestine Liberation Organization would rescind its recognition of Israel and ask Arab states to expel their US envoys.
...
If the Palestinians acted on this advice they would risk the current funding that comes from the US and the UN, which the Trump administration could veto.   The bad faith showed by the Obama administration in this matter is palpable.  Democrats better start being as critical as Republicans unless they want to become a permanent minority party.
