    After 8 years Obama who gave away 86 billion over 10 years for arms to Israel finally decides to do the right thing and demand in the UN that Israel do the right thing and create a two state solution and so the House of Representatives decides to do the wrong thing and all the Republicans except 4 and 100 democrats vote to condemn this UN vote which reveals the strangle hold AIPAC has on the U.S. Government (its called campaign bribe money).

    Actually these two rogue countries have a great deal in common; wars of aggression, war crimes and stealing other peoples lands.

    President Obama always pushed for a two state solution. Am I the only one who remembers Netanyahu inserting himself into the 2012 election and openly support Mitt Romney?


    What you are referring to is President Obama instructing Samantha Power to abstain from a vote condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank. I wrote at the time that I wish the Obama Administration went even further and voter in favor, but an abstention is better than a veto.

    Who cares what the House did? The United Nations is now on record condemning Israeli settlements. It's a largely symbolic vote, but it is forever etched into stone.

    Israel is digging its own grave with their continued settlement expansion.

    The two state solution is what reasonable persons should want and work towards. However, Israel has greed, hate, and illusions of supremacy. Look at who / what is being inaugurated tomorrow. The world is in serious trouble.
