the first line in my post "i welcome US intervention in israel." Petra could speak for herself regarding the "butt out" comment. My point is, when the PA makes a "butt out" diplomatic statement, like being BEGGED to go for proximity talks etc, no one suggests that the US isn't getting its money's worth, many are all too understanding that the PA must do what is best for its citizens, not what is best for Obama. Is idependent policy welcome ONLY if its by players other than Israel. As for the PA: forget diplomatic/foreign/peace aspect of the it's failures. Do you realize that we're only beginning to talk of state building NOW? after 20 freaking years of EU/US cash being pumped in the sysetm? Could you even fathom the incredible waste of time and resources?
