Less than six months after President Barack Obama came out formally in favor of an independent Palestinian state, the US State Department is condemning the Palestinian push for statehood.
Following yesterday’s reports that top Palestinian leaders, frustrated by Israel’s repeatedly declarations that the peace process was dead, intend to approach the UN about a unilateral declaration of independence, the State Department says the US is opposed to any Palestinian state that doesn’t arise from negotiations with Israel.
Israel has also angrily condemned the idea of a unilateral Palestinian state, and Minister Gilad Erdan says Israel may annex additional portions of the occupied territories to punish the Palestinians for this move. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman expressed hope that the US would veto Palestinian statehood in the UN Security Council.
Israel and the US aren’t the only opponents of the move. Surprisingly enough Hamas is also criticizing the push, saying that resisting the occupation is more practical than simply hoping that a Palestinian state can be created out of thin air. Not that decades of resisting the occupation has had much success either.

Does Mr. Domestic think that the Palestinians can wait forever for some kind of fantasy "peace deal" while their land is continually being stolen block by block by the israelis? Does he think it reasonable that the Palestinians should have to perpetually be at the mercy of the isreali's occupation, treated worse than animals, forced to "negotiate" with their tormentors as if they were on equal footing with them? I have not seen such abject cowardice in my lifetime from a US President on this issue, really even George W. Bush – the champion of israel – held out longer against the israelis than Obama. What's worse is that he seems to be playing right into the zionist's hands. On the one hand legitimizing the status quo by refusing to do anything about the settlements and on the other blocking Palestinian efforts to circumvent the dead-end
"peace process" by using all elements of the U.S.'s international pressure. As Baz put it, this appears to be proof positive of israeli ownership of US foreign policy.
I cna't say it better than Baz. Our country should be called the United States of Israel.
the US government is a joke….ZOG is the least of it
Seems the power of political donations, and "deals/bribes" for Govt money, and crooked media "working in concert" have over the "beliefs & compliance of the masses" & "our own" Govt. is limitless … also, the gloating over profits from these ignorant murdering supremacist thieves! ….no wonder they always cry for "democracy" …they know that if you own media (via finance) you can buy and/or own the politicians & PS…….HOWEVER, it is really nothing like justice or democracy… …I suggest you research the Bilderberg Group for some explanations.
If you ever wanted proof that israel is not interested in peace and that the US is Israels lackey, this is it
The United States has become a complete mockery of itself. The American government stands for nothing, and the white house is Israel's branch office. As an American who grew up during the forties and fifties, I can only say that I am thoroughly ashamed of my country.
Remember when Israel was pounding Gaza to smitharines and Obama was asked if he had something to say. I ain't President yet– ask Bush
Note: he sure talked alot about bad Russia on the Georgia conflict. Jews have a word for this type of a guy–Shmuck!
Obama is a zionist–a pathological liar. How could this guy look in the mirror each morning?
Who backed Obama into the job with grooming & money & media & all? You can bet the same guys that are grooming his replacements….singling out "one politician"……. is a waste of time ..it's "different dog, peeing on the same tree"…..Question is who is driving the agendas ? are they good or bad?..& how & why are they doing it?…. I suggest people research Bilderberg Group & Trilatorals….seems Rockerfeller & his underling grafters & … their quest for "world domination" for fun & profit is a BIG part in all this madness….how many murdered now?… The money always seems to go back to Banking, Oil & Military supply…..& then so on …..I suspect THe FED & Media & murder & assassinations is the key to it not the politicians of the day.
It would be amusing to watch the Jews jump up and down like the Three Stooges over a purely symbolic declaration but for the fact they'll kill still more Palestinians in revenge.
What gives the USA the "right" to say the Palestinian people can't have a state?
