Everybody who is fair knows exactly how this conflict must end. The Pals must be able to establish a state in the West Bank with 1967 lines as a guide. This means Israeli settlements must go,( except where land exchanges are agreed). Unfortunately those who can make this happen seem paralysed. The EU spews hot air, UN is helpless. The mighty USA is busy acceding every day to yet another Israeli demand. The promises allegedly offered to Israel to make them obey international law temporarily are shameful. If the USA agrees with the rest of the world that settlements are illegal, how can they offer Israel incentives not to continue with settlements. Why not insist that they obey international law like Iraq or Iran? Against their own global interests America continues to abet Israel in her nefarious behaviour. Some American patriot has to take back America from AIPAC.
