    What's most upsetting about this U.N. bid for Palestinian statehood is not that the Palestinians are not deserving of their independence, but the whole discomfort on the Western countries who've acted as mediators throughout the decades in attempting to settle the dispute. The truth is that President Obama's administration has taken a real hit throughout PM Netanyahu's tenure leaving many exasperated in their dealings concerning this diplomatic impasse. It's a conflict which has to be negotiated to settle the core issues if coexistence is the aim and had PM Netanyahu accepted the previous Israeli government's peace proposal towards the PA, then 3 years of these unnecessary exercises would have been avoided. But PM Netanyahu rejected from the start and what's President Obama or President Abbas to do but to ride the storm, when the Israeli electorate votes Likud out! There's just so much the U.S. or the Quartet can do when the main parties refuse to budge from their positions.
