    When US declared it’ independence from England did they ask permission to do that unilaterally? Did Israel declared it’ state did they asked permission from Palestinians or English? Why both nations expect from Palestinians to do differently? If this was the trend, we could find very few free nations in the world. Occupier nations do not consent for the freedom of the people they oppress. By being illogical and stubborn as a mule Netanyahu, government is causing the hatred of the entire world. When it comes to the USA veto this is the highlight of a hypocritical policy of backing Israel what ever they do and whatever they desire. Today, in the US news media Republican presidential candidates kept saying “Our biggest ally in the Middle-East” Yes but the biggest ally is the USA and not the Israel. Israel is a recipient state and depends on US and it’ Veto power to be able to continue it’ ways, not the other way around. If USA goes with the Veto this will be a shut in the foot. One day US public will realize that USA Government, by not following the correct and dignified road and not having the backbone and vision to say no to Israel’ every folly, is going to loose their fair player status.
