America and Israel have together been roadblocks to peace for decades. It is a sad come down for America to be reduced to such behavior, but that's what happens when people let their government run away from them. America and Israel will do their best to scuttle the UN action before, during, and after it makes an appearance on the UN floor. At least now the lines of battle are drawn. America and Israel on one side supoprting Israeli expansion and oppression. The rest of the world on the other side, supporting Palestinian statehood. It should be noted that Israel may have a few other supporters, such as Canada, and a couple others along for the ride, but they will not be as engaged in the process as America and Israel. No matter what happens at the UN, this is progress. Progress is our most important product.
