    I very much doubt if there is a single political leader from the US or the EU countries who can stand the sight of netanyahu or any in his government. That is not the point. No American politician can express any hint of disfavour toward Israel because the AIPAC lobby will distroy him or her. They will get the media to slander them and contributos will be intimidated to such a degree that the money for campaigns and support will dry up. Look at the respense from Nital Lowy, Howrad Berman and Rohetinen from FL to the mere suggestion that instead of a UN veto the US would issue a statement condemning the settlements. Even that was a off limits action. I am convinced that these same politicians if they were to wtiness the ethnic cleansing plan of lieberman or eldad for Ara citizens of Israel, that they would find cause to support it and demand US support as neccesary for the security of "their only ally in the ME". Rest assured that by this veto, the US has lost whatever little credibility they ever had. Placing themselves and their political careers in the pocket of the zionist lobby hardly will endure such leaders to the rest of the world when it reeks of such duplicity and hypocracy.
