I apologize to those of you who I may offend for saying this about your leader. But since he has chosen to use the US to advance his agenda I will tell you one American's point of view. I am for peace between Israel and the Palestinian people. I hope they both can negotiate and make peace or show who is against it. People say “why does Israel have to step forward first and agree to negotiate on the terms of 67 lines with land swaps”. Because someone needs to be the adult in the room and say “I am willing to negotiate even though we disagree”. Netanyahu and it appears the US Congress does not understand that the nations including our allies are starting to side with the Palestinians. This is evident in the upcoming UN vote. Whether this is right or wrong depends on your point of view. If Netanyahu knows that there will not be an agreement because of Hamas, than what is the downside of trying to negotiate? He has US “iron-clad” backing, does this not make him feel secure? Will it be only symbolic? Probably, but it will show the nations in the UN that Israel is for peace. It will show who is not serious in making peace. Israel and Palestinian people are for peace, but I think it is their leaders who are against it. These men have their own personal agenda they are putting before the good of their people. I am for supporting Democratic governments who are willing to help themselves. But not for men who put their agendas ahead of the United States or a man who uses the US government to push his own. Thank you for listening.
