    "The Americans said the Security Council was likely to approve the sanctions by a massive majority that would include Russian support, the Israeli source added. However, they were less optimistic regarding China, which at this stage continues to object to new sanctions." Er hello? If China vetoes the measure it is not approved. It doesn't matter if a majority of the council vote for it, if a permanent member vetoes. And Israel and the US can't come over all democratic on us at this point. If a majority in the secuirty council meant anything Israel would have had sanctions against it and been pushed out of the West Bank a long time ago.
