'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
Obama has been so egregiously pro-Israel, and one may ponder the reasons why but it doesn't really matter, just like his predecessors that what he says to Jewish leaders or anyone else for that matter, on this issue is irrelevant. The US has never been an honest broker, and I say that while recognising that nations don't have friends they have interests and nations don't have principles, they have interests, but it has clearly demonstrated to everyone, and none more so than the Palestinians that when it comes to Israel's occupation and colonisation of Palestine it is a dishonest broker. The US is a waning power and the world has changed. The US will not and cannot bring any sort of resolution but world opinion will. Just watch! And whether Obama is around or not won't matter either; these issues of justice are bigger than one country or one leader.
