Why would the US Congress threaten the Palestinians with the cancellation of aid? Wouldn't a UN resolution help pressure Israel to move in the direction of peace? If the US actually cuts aid, it will lose all influence on the Palestinians and will be out of the peace game, a self-defeating move and a result Israel and AIPAC will dislike? My suggestion is that Saudi Arabia should save their friend from itself, and announce that they will pick up the slack. They did such a thing recently. When Obama threatened Mubarak the US aid will be cut if he continued acting against the protestors, Saudi Arabia said they would make up for it. To his present regret, no doubt, Mubarak chose to rely on Obama. The Saudis and Palestinians should remember the lesson.
