President François Hollande’s approval rating is currently at 4 percent. I believe that with the Paris Conference on the Middle East on the past will soon be at zero. Britain did not even sign the statement from the Paris Conference and refused to send a foreign minister or ambassador to the conference. They condemned the final statement of the conference. We already know where the Trump Administration sits on the two-state solution. Most of the educated countries realize that between Ramallah and Gaza,  there is an existing two-state solution in the Middle East on Judea and Samaria.  A failed attempt by the Palestinians and the French with 70 countries attending to make one last stance before Hollande and Obama are gone.

Of the 70 countries, 36 had no real relationship with the state of Israel. Having Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, the Secretary-General of the Arab League proved Prime Minister Netanyahu was 100% correct that this conference was a sham to try to force a solution that none of the 70 parties have a stake in. For once John Kerry did not try to influence for the two-state solution.

John Kerry, who traveled from Vietnam to be at the meeting.  The UK  represented by Michael Howells, a regular diplomat from the UK Middle East Desk attended. Recently Prime Minister May has put the UN resolution and arm’s-length from her government. The Foreign Office of the United Kingdom issued the following statement "We have particular reservations about an international conference intended to advance peace between the parties that does not involve them  - indeed which is taking place against the wishes of the Israelis - and which is taking place just days before the transition to a new American President when the U.S. will be the ultimate guarantor of any agreement"

So with this in the rearview mirror, it is time for the Trump administration, not to waive the US Law for the movement of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem which has been waived by most Presidents So goodbye Mr. Kerry even France did not save you, and the UK rebuked your speech. So, I applaud Mr. Netanyahu when his steadfast opposition and action towards this conference.  Mr. Hollande this is your last Opus.
