The nature of the wall under discussion is a sensitive topic. The reaction of USA to this dispute is interesting and demonstrate the double standards with which USA treat Palestinians and Israelis. In the case here discussed USA quickly intervened and forced the Palestinian Authority to withdraw its statement. However, USA refused to intervene and force Israel to reconsider its policies on other equally sensitive sites. One example occurred few months ago when Israel included some West Bank religious sites on heritage list. The lack of a consistent approach to similar problems from USA once again indicate how unfounded is any hope of USA acting as a honest broker in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.
