The Americans are a waste of space regarding ME peace. They have consistently used their UN veto to ensure continuation of the Israeli occupation and settlement expansion, to the point where any contiguous Palestinian state is impossible. For sure the Palestinians will voice their disapproval, and no doubt the rest of Islamic world will express its contempt for the Americans in a different fashion, but it's down to Obama to make the ultimate choice between good and evil, and right and wrong.
