My friends, its time that the Palestinians stopped looking to the US for cues in order to pursue Statehood. As we are well aware, the Zionist lobby driving US Mid-East foreign policy will never, ever give the Palestinians the State they desire and deserve. I say to the Palestinian leaders - go for it and let the chips fall where they may. The 'peace dividend' that was sought since 1982 has never materialised and it never will.
