If the US just takes this humiliation from Israel and insists PA goes ahead with talks, it's pretty much the final betrayal of the Palestinians by America. America's addicted to Israel and however much it says it'll be fair, like a deluded alcoholic it ends up doing exactly what Israel tells it in the end, every time. Ahmedinajed may be a slightly deranged fanatic, but at least he's perpared to put money and power behind the Palestinians, which America never will. He's probably the last person you'd want on your side, but with the US and all its Arab kings abandoning them, it's hard to see where else the Pals have to go.
