    You would think that this is one area where Obama can act without limitations from Congress. If this is any indication of his commitment to the issue, then the U.S. should bow out and let the Europeans take over the task of brokering a peace settlement, because THIS is just more of the same. All the U.S. is doing is making sure Israel is able to continue its occupations and settlement building, to which the U.S. ostentatiously objects, but will not confront as it should be confronted. This "no" vote, coming in the midst of a major flare up of so-called disapproval over those wretched settlements, makes it abundantly clear that Obama has been effectively reined in by the pro-Zionist power brokers in Washington. And any way you look at it, with Congress completely controlled by Zionist interests and essentially strutting the same views as Netanyahu's right wing governemnt, the U.S. has got to be the absolute WORST choice for brokering an equitable resolution to the conflict.
