Not long ago, Obama snubbed China by meeting Dala Lama. Today, we see the same thing happens when Israel announces building of more settlements in occupied East Jerusalem, directly confronting the U.S. VP Joe. Now, the “affront” and “insult” come back to Obama.
The Jews have built more than 100 settlements since Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967, all of which are considered illegal under international law and have continued up to now, mostly because the Jews have the backup of number one superpower in the world. The alliance, of course, has angered most of an otherwise powerless un-Jews and spread bad feelings against both the U.S. and the Jews.
Now the U.S. wants to be friend among the Arabs and to play the role of peace-maker. But the monster it has fostered refuses to abide and rejects any attempt to curb its expansion.
While China has a few cards to play when Obama ignored her protests, it is almost interesting to see what U.S. can do if its fostered son goes ahead with his decision to build 1,600 new homes in occupied East Jerusalem.
P.S. today we learn of Palestinians riot in East Jerusalem, so much for the peace-loving Uncle Sam and his rebellious son.
