Q1: Kerry's speech comes after the US abstained from voting on the UN resolution on Israel last Friday. It's a unusual show of frustration. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced Kerry as "obsessed" and "biased". What do you make of this exchange between these two close, longtime allies?
Q2: President Barack Obama is about to leave office.... and President-elect Donald Trump, ahead of Kerry's speech, urged Israel to "stay strong" on Twitter. What's can we expect from the US in terms of the future of Middle East diplomacy?
