    Mr. Issacharoff of the left seeks to blame a fellow Israeli of the right (FM Lieberman) for the UN vote. The reality is the Palestinians have pulled a political tour-de-force worthy of Bismark or Metternich. With the bad cops (Hamas) attacking Israel with rockets - the eye of the world became focused on the Israel / Palestinine issue. Note that during this period the Syrian revolt vanished from Western news media. To the rescue by playing the good cop, Mr. Abbas raises the banner of the civilized Arab for the whole world to recognize and vote on which it does in spite of arm twisting by the US government. Now with the issue of the 300,000 Jewish settlers living in Palestine, the government under either Ms. Livni OR Mr. Netanyahu will be forced to act. Either remove the settlers from Samaria and Judea or face consequences from the UN for a policy under both the left AND the right that supported the settler movement.
