    Capitalism is not on the verge of collapse. The whole world is not going to embrace the Muslim religion. The US is the strongest economic and military power in the world.The US is the major contributor to the UN. Without US aid, more people will go hungry in the Arab world. Obama will use the US veto in the Security Council to block Palestinian membership. Obama will not be impeached for taking this decision. Congress will stop aid to Palestine. Republican candidates for the Presidency will blame Obama and voice their support for the Israeli position. The vote in the UN will not have any positive influence on the daily lives of Palestinians.
