An American Abstention
Is it possible that the United States will simply abstain from both or either General Assembly or Security Council votes regarding the creation of a new nation of Palestine? I contend that it is indeed possible that Barack Hussein Obama will either wash his hands of an action he innately favors but does not want his finger prints on, that being the creation of a Palestine overtly intent on supplanting the Jewish State or even worse, that Obama believes he has lost Jewish support already anyway and like James Baker allegedly once said those people "don't vote for us anyway" and Obama is not concerned with further alienating a group he sees no way to win back. Either way, an American failure to veto a Palestine conceived in hate and bent on genocide will not only harm Israel but the Palestinians themselves, the region as a whole, and ultimately the world.
