    So, what will the right-wing Israeli government do, if the UNGA recognizes Palestine as a member state? Will the panicky, yet opportunistic land grabbers use the situation as an excuse to annex all of the WB? East J'lem has already been annexed...though few outside of Israel accept that unlawful annexation. Sudden annexation of the WB could easily trigger another intifada...and the cycle of mass violence would resume in earnest. None of that is in the best interests of the USA...it is time to cut the aid to Israel, not to the Pals, as has been threatened. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is acting as a de facto Israeli agent in the US House of Reps, she's threatening all kinds of US retribution, if the Pals are successful in their statehood bid. Time to outlaw AIPAC and JACPAC, Ros-Lehtinen's paymasters? They have short-circuited our democratic process.
