The UN Security Council has voted that the Israeli settlements in Palestine have no legal validity. Finally the United States has withdrawn its veto. Previously the USA was the only UN Security Council member to vote against a resolution condemning Israel for this illegal occupation.
Israel would not accept its land being taken over by Palestine. Why should Palestine tolerate Israel grabbing its territory? The flagrantly illegal seizure of Palestinian land is an affront to the conscience of the world. Theft leads to graver crimes. It provokes resistance. The Israeli military seeks to suppress resistance. The IDF goes much further than it needs to in order to defeat irregular fighters. Civilians are killed on a huge scale by the IDF.
Many US politicians hate illegal immigrants. But if these illegals are Israeli illegal immigrants in Palestine then these same US politicians give unstinting support.
Some like the incoming US ambassador to Israel seek to deny Palestine its very name.
Barak Obama has shown valour and morality in withdrawing the US block on a UN resolution against illegal settlements.
