The US and EU countries were notoriously negligent in responding to the Holocaust. It is an historic stain and it is their guilt over that stain that constrains them from condemning Israel. They are mortally afraid of being called anti-semitic which is what will happen if they were to support the UN Resolution. They simply don't want to endure that and Israel knows how to play the guilt card to the hilt. It is time that the US recognise once and for all that zionism is all about two things and two things only and they are:1. maximization of land and 2. establishing demographic superiority over the Arab population. Israel does not believe that lasting peace with the Arabs is possible and that their relationship will either be non-belligerency or as adversaries. This same blindness apparently makes them unaware of what a veto in the UN will mena for their credibility in that part of the world that is currently undergoing tremendous social change that could be to the advantage of the US. Vetoing a resolution drafted using American language will destroy whatever credibility is left.
