Of course the US is vetoing it! The US has dual Israeli/American citizens throughout government and within the highest echelons of the Presidents Cabinet. It's AIPAC Obama has to win over, haven't you heard the talking heads? Talking about how a trip to Israel would do him some good? Ummm why does the US need to have Israel's approval on who is the US president? A little bit of conflict of interest wouldn't you say? Especially since Israelis and most Jews are Israel firsters.
