Looks like we are taking an interest in the problems along the West Bank:
The United States cast the first U.N. Security Council veto in nearly two years Thursday, blocking an Arab-backed resolution that would have demanded Israel halt its military offensive in the Gaza Strip.
The draft, sponsored by Qatar, accused Israel of a “disproportionate use of force” that endangered Palestinian civilians, and it demanded Israel withdraw its troops from Gaza.
I wonder how our buddies in Qatar feel about our veto. This could very well make extinct any bit of support we had left in the Arab world.
