    They have ALREADY waited 4 years on Obama to do the right thing. Obama has NEVER prevented Israel from building Settlements; he even protected Settlements with a US veto in the UN Security Council, yet he persists in demanding that Palestinians must not move forward with alternative efforts at the UN to stop Settlement construction. The JOKE is that Israel agreed to stop Settlement construction AND demolish illegal outposts when it signed the Road Map Agreement over 10 years ago. By the Road Map, all of that HAS to happen BEFORE negotiations begin for core issues and final status. If Israel had done what it agreed to do, NONE of this would be necessary. Meanwhile, Obama has crippled the Quartet to prevent it from implementing the agenda for peace it was formed to pursue. Obama we voted for you. Please DO NOT fail us again.
