It is quite clear that the US is not an honest peace broker. The middle East need an independent mediator that is no ally of either palestine or israel. I see this being resolved through arbitration or a one state solution which Israel also fears. There should be no excuses why a palestinian state should not be granted by the UN. The UNSC should reform inorder to allow a democratic process where the majority's views from the General Assembly are represented not by some permanent members.
