    The world is fed up with Israel's arrogance and utter contempt for international law or opinion. Israel feels it can act with iompunity and will always have the full backing of the US. Susan Rice was painful to watch as she attempted, in vain, to explain the US veto. The world knows that and so do the Palestinians. But Gideon forget to mention why the US vetoed the resolution. Obama knows full well the power, money and organisation of the zionist lobby and their fellow travellers in the US. Walt and Mersheim exposed the overridding inflouence of that lobby on US foreign policy. They are able to make and break political careers, dry up campaign coffers and send out their minions to propagandise the media. That is the white elephant in the room and as long as zionist front groups are successful in intimidating and threatening any challenger, nothing will change. The tragedy is that placating that lobby and its domestic consequences come before the US own national interest in the ME. Susan Rice, or Hilary Clinton, after this debacle in the UN will be able to stand before any Ara nation of the EU for that matter as credible or impatial brokers. They have shown themselves to be in the Likud and worse pocket,and the most racist elements that know there will be no end to settlements as they gobble up what is left of Palestine can sneer and gloat as they bring greater insecurity to their own country and to the entire region.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
