If Mr. Abbas listens to the Americans on this one (remember the Goldstone reoprt) he is a gonner. If America vetoes this resolution the Arab peoples revolt will intensify and most if not all the American poodles in the ME will be on their way out. It is about time for America (President, Congress etc.) to be thinking about America's national interest rather than Israel's. Do not let US domestic politics (elections and re elections) dictate America's foreign policy in the Middle East.
