Palestinians take a step that changes no facts on the ground and that demonstrates a clear commitment to realizing a future with two states, although not two states achieved through Israel's preferred process.

In response I am sure the US will say "tut, tut, not good". Tell me again why the US isn't seen as an honest broker?
