In this case particularly, more than in any other case, it is the duty

  and responsibility of the international community to step in.

  It is they who created Israel

It is time for the international community to end this farce of direct negotiations

  between the helpless occupied and the all-powerful occupier.

It is time for it to live up to its duty and obligations and

take action to end the illegal occupation

 

Obama has diminished himself, tarnished the image of America

and, as between Israel and Palestine, has aligned himself

  with the oppressor against the oppressed.

The portion of Obama's speech in the United Nations that referred to the Palestinian bid for membership in the UN earned for him a "badge of honor" from Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu (those are the very words used by Netanyahu when he congratulated Obama on his speech!). But, in the eyes of most of the world, it brought shame and disgrace on Obama and the US and made a laughing stock of both.

There are three points he made in his speech. One was that the Palestinian state cannot come into being through resolutions in the UN. He forgets that but for a resolution of the UN, Israel would not be even existing today. And it was a UN resolution that enabled NATO to actively help the Libyan rebels get control of Tripoli and most of Libya. Again, it was UN resolutions that resulted in the formation of the Alliance of the Willing and launching of Desert Storm. Once again, it was a UN resolution that enabled the launching of the war on Iraq purportedly to find and destroy Weapons of Mass Destruction.

In Tunisia the US, along with the rest of the world, cheered the Tunisian rebels when they got rid of their tyrannical government. In Egypt the US supported, slowly, hesitatingly, cautiously and, at times, seemingly reluctantly, the Egyptian people and applauded the departure of dictator Hosni Mubarak, a long time and loyal ally of the US. In Libya the US went one step further. It spent billions of dollars and actively participated, along with NATO forces, in bombing Gaddafi's bases. But for the UN resolution   sanctioning   NATO intervention, the Gaddafi regime would still be in power in Libya.
