The US is not an impartial party. They are completely on the side of Israel and due to domestic political considerations and power lobbies will never publicly condemn Israel or itst expansionism. They know too well that Israel will simply spit in their face and charge them with anti-Semitism. They have played that card for decades and it has worked. The US will continue to get the Palestinians to relent and and let Israel go on expanding so that a two state solution becomes more of a farce than it already is. The Palestinians need the support of the international community and should go to the UN and advocate relentlessly for the growth of the BDS movement so that eventually the economies of these settlements will be utterly destroyed, and there will be no access for any of their goods to any EU markets. There is no other way at this point since Israel will only continue to receive carte blanche from the US and the Palestinians will continue to be blamed for the breakdown.
