The Obama Adminstration angrily warned the Palestinian Authority as well as the United Nations against a new Security Council resolution which would criticize Israel for its massive expansion of settlements on occupied Palestinian land.
The US insisted the move would “complicate” peace talks between Israel and the PA, though with the talks entirely stalled for months on end that seems to be only a minor concern for many. The US was mum on the prospect of a veto, however.
Though the US traditionally vetos anything which even resembles criticism of Israel the resolution was deliberately worded to explicitly parrot US comments regarding the settlements, and it would be even more hypocritical than usual for the Obama Administration to veto it.
A number of US Senators have written a letter demanding the veto all the same, however, insisting that the efforts to criticize the illegal settlements proves the Palestinians want to “dictate terms to Israel.“

Us is supporting the crimes against humanity not seen since Adolph Hitler and his pursue for foreign lands and supreme race…
Well, we always do, don't we? At the end of WWII, I discovered that no one had even wanted to talk about what the Nazi were doing to the Jews. After the birth of Israel, I discovered that no one even dared to complain about what the Israeli were doing to the Palestinians. Perhaps it's a kind of global tradition. I tend to believe in an afterlife, and the thought of the Nazi and Israeli standing side by side for judgment presents a very interesting irony.

Peace talks? Oh mommy, that's rich. Rich with the delightful colors of disingenuous hypocrisy. Palestine should simply declare their national sovereignty and be done with it. Palestinians will NEVER get more than the back of the U.S. hand. Shine on you 'apartheid' diamond!
Heavens! What is Obomber going to do? Invade whatever of Palestine is left themselves?
The more I see/hear Obama, the more my stomach turns. He's turning out to be worse, much, much worse than Bush. At least with the other murderer-in-chief, one could always count on his cavalier disregard for everything but this bastards lies, he lies to our faces, thru his teeth and all under the cover of…the cover whatever the fuck it is.
Palestine will be an independent nation, with or without the support of the US. If the USG wants to get a piece of the action, it will do an about-face and offer whatever support the Palestinians need to get up and running as a nation. Doing so will go a long way towards easing Middle East tensions, albeit at the price of alienating some in the Israeli camp. If the US does not get on board with the opportunity to build a potential allied nation from the ground up, you can bet your boots somebody else will.
And here is a President who has the audicity to accuse China of violating human rights. What a hyprocritical stance, while he the US itself is directly responsible for far worse human rights violations and warcrimes committed day in day out by the Israelis for the last seventy years or so and blocking recognition of a independent Palestinian state, which could make an end to this appalling occupation and atrocities perpetrated on a virtually daily basis on innocent men women and children. The US has also been instrumental in the suppression of the Goldstone report in the United Nations. And what about the Guatanomo Bay inmates, locked up indefinately without any access to a legal court of justice. China may have itsTibet, America has its Palestine to contend with.
The United States is Israel's sock puppet, and the whole world knows it, even, at last, many Americans.
There will never be a US foreign policy not bought and paid for by bribes, (they call them campaign contributions), until all political campaigns are publicly funded.
Not to mention Omar Khadir captured CHILD soldier….tried and frightened to plead GUILTY by the REAL war CRIMINALS ……0Bama and hiz merry neoconz……………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
