Vetoes, Leaders and GazaEileen Fleming Salem-News.com
When 'leaders' fail-the people must and will lead!
(CLERMONT, Fla.) - As expected, the US has vetoed the Arab resolution at the UN Security Council that condemned the ILLEGAL Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories citing them as obstacles to peace.
All 14 other members of the Security Council backed the resolution, which had also been endorsed by the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).
It was also Obama's first veto!
Pressure came from Israel and 'occupied' Congress!
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the US veto, adding that his country remained committed to "a solution that will reconcile the Palestinians' legitimate aspirations for statehood with Israel's need for security and recognition".
And when 'leaders' fail-the people must and will lead!
"The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership; a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures."- William Fulbright
"We'll make a pastrami sandwich of them. We'll insert a strip of Jewish settlement, right across the West Bank, so that in 25 years time, neither the United Nations, nor the United States, nobody, will be able to tear it apart." - Ariel Sharon to Winston Churchill III in 1973
