The UN made the mess we now have in the mideast when they "created" Israel. At the same time, they "created" Palestine. All that is necessary is to iron out the details. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    The Quartet is really the UN security council stripped of those nations that support the Palestinians. What is the point of the "Quartet". Is not the UN the international body created to deal with these issues? America has successfully acted as Israel's agent and proxy for decades while posing as a fair broker. The Quartet is nothing more than fakery in which America bestows favors on pliable nations for their support on matters concerning Israel. It is a sham and a disgrace. The UN is the venue for international disputes. Why make a special little council of "sympathetic" nations to support America's overwhelming bias favoring Israel? America has such a massive conflict of interest here, they should be excluded from participation. This would automatically exclude the Quartet.
