THE USA WONDERS WHY THE ARAB WORLD CAN'T UNDERSTAND THEM?


Israeli settlements: US vetoes UNSC resolution



The Obama administration wielded its first veto at the UN security council last night in a move to swipe down a resolution condemning Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory.
The US stood alone among the 15 members of the security council in failing to condemn the resumption of settlement building taking a place on land that belongs to Palestinians.
This has always caused a serious rift between the Israeli government and the Palestinian authority.
This once again has derailed any attempt to kick-start the peace process.
The Palestinians have made it clear that they will not return to the negotiating table until Israel suspends settlement building in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
This decision placed the US in a controversial position at a time when it is already struggling to define its strategy in a tumultuous Middle East.
The 14 member countries backing the Arab-drafted resolution included Britain and France.
The Israel lobby in the US has again shown us all who pulls the strings in the US administration.
The US administration jumps when the Israel lobby says so, all they seem to ask is how high do you want us jump.
As the leader of the "Free" world what sort of example do they set, almost everybody knows the the Palestinian question would be closer to being solved if they agreed to this resolution.
THIS BIG DOG ALWAYS DOES WHAT IT'S TOLD
