    The United States on Friday voted against a United Nations Security Council draft resolution that would have condemned Israeli settlements as illegal. The veto by the U.S., a permanent council member, prevented the resolution from being adopted.

    The other 14 Security Council members voted in favor of the draft resolution. But the U.S., as one of five permanent council members with the power to block any action by the Security Council, struck it down.

    The resolution had nearly 120 co-sponsors, exclusively Arab and other non-aligned nations.

    The Obama administration¬ís veto is certain to anger Arab countries and Palestinian supporters around the world.​

    Oh well, Quelle surprise. More hypocrisy under the guise of not upsetting the discredited peace process (in the wake of the revelations from Wikileaks).

    No surprise. We were cool with Hitler and Rwanda, too

    The bottom line is this: America hates ragheads even more than it hates kikes

    That's why we said nothing when Hitler wanted an Aryan homeland and we'll pay to help the Zionists create a pure Jewish state. Maybe then we can send all the Jews there and finish what we started in the 20s.

    USA!USA!USA!...

    I was wondering how to work a Hitler comparison in there myself, but since the UN didn't exist then and the US wasn't in the League of Nations it didn't seem relevant.

    It just strikes me as utterly stupid to have allowed this diplomatic foot shooting excersize to have emerged at a time when the whole middle east is in foment and when the aim of the game should be to minimize the chance of islamic fundamentalists hijacking the scene rather than so far (apparently) secular groups taking over.

    Doing Business in Israel -- U.S. Commercial Service Israel





    This track is not an attack upon the American people
    It is an attack upon the system within which they live
    Since 1945 the united states has attempted to
    Overthrow more than 50 foreign governments
    In the process the us has caused the end of life
    For several million people, and condemned many millions
    More to a live of agony and despair

    [Verse 1]
    The strength of your dreamin
    Prevents you from reason
    The American dream
    Only makes sense if youre sleepin

    Its just a cruel fantasy
    Their politics took my voice away
    But their music gave it back to me

    The land where their __? Or consumed by consumption
    Killing themselves to shovel down food and abundance
    I guess a rapper from Britain is a rare voice
    America is capitalism on steroids

    Natives kept in casinos and reservations
    Displaced slaves never given reparations
    Take everything from Native Americans
    And wonder why I call it the racist experiment

    Afraid of your melanin
    The same as its ever been
    That aint gonna change
    With the race of the president

    I see imperialism under your skin tone
    You could call it Christopher Columbus syndrome

    [Chorus 2x]
    Is it Obamas nation or an abomination?
    Is it Obamas nation or an abomination?
    Is it Obamas nation or an abomination?
    Doesn't make any difference when they bomb your nation

    O! Say can you see by the dawn's early light
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars through perilous fight
    O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming

    [Verse 2]
    The worlds entertainer
    The worlds devastator
    From Venezuela
    To Mesopotamia

    Your cameras lie
    Cause they have to hide the savage crimes

    Committed on leaders that happen
    To try and nationalize

    Eating competitions while the worlds been starvin
    Beat up communism with the help of bin-laden
    Where would your war of terror be without that man
    Every day you create more Nidal Hassans

    Kill a man from the military, youre a weirdo
    But kill a wog from the Middle East youre a hero
    Your country is causing screams that are never reaching ear holes
    America inflicted a million ground zeros

    Follow the dollar and swallow your humanity
    Soldiers committing savagery you never even have to see
    Those mad at me, writing in emails angrily
    Im not anti-America, America is anti-me

    [Chorus 2x]
    Is it Obamas nation or an abomination?
    Is it Obamas nation or an abomination?
    Is it Obamas nation or an abomination?
    Doesn't make any difference when they bomb your nation

    And the rocket's red glare,
    The bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night
    That our flag was still there,

    O! Does that star spangled banner yet wave
    O'er land of the free and the home of the brave

    [Verse 3]
    I don't care if him and Cheney are long lost relations
    What matters more is the policies I lost my patience
    Stop debating bringing race into conversation
    Occupation and cooperation equals profit makin

    Its over - people wake up from the dream now
    Nobel peace prize, jay z on speed dial
    Its the substance within, not the colour of your skin
    Are you the puppeteer or the puppet on the string

    So many believe that they was instantly gonna change
    There was still Dennis Ross, Brzezinski And Robert Gates
    What happened to Chas freeman (APAC),
    What happened to Tristan Anderson its a machine that keeps that man breathing

    I have the heart to say what all the other rappers arent
    Words like Iraq, Palestine - Afghanistan
    The wars on, and you morons were all wrong
    I call Obama a bomber Cause those are your bombs

    You assume to much if you think the US has the power to stop a vote like this from happening at all.

    I agree and they wonder why the Islamic countries hate us, we are supposed to be a nations with no preference for religion and or religious states. I guess we feel we are right and the rest of the world are a bunch of dead wrong anti-Semites.

    You are right. All sorts of machinations go on in the background (i.e. the 120 odd who proposed this vote doing so knowing exactly that the US would vote as it would, but that would be giving them too much organizational credibility, and would be delving into conspiracy theories). However, although I don't know how long this thing was in the pipeline, or exactly how the UN works, it seems that some delaying tactic could and should have been employed to stop this vote having been taken today. It's nuts.
