Insisting on a negotiated settlement has proven to be Israel's ticket to fending off a final status agreement while it continues to expand its encroachment at an accelerating pace! UN recognition of the Palestinian state is long overdue, and had it been done a decade or so ago, the logistical problem presented by Israel's illegal settlements would be a fraction of what they are today. Meanwhile, the problem has long since begun to grow almost logarithmically, and if the situation is allowed to continue unchecked much longer, Israel will have soon successfully stifled the possibility of a viable Palestinian state. It's time for US to stop catering to Israeli expansionism once and for all! It's time to end the greatest single contradiction of all time to the basic tenets upon which the United States was founded, and to the ideals which it espouses!
