The Lion that Squeaked
After the upgrading of Palestine, by the United Nations, to a non member State, Israel immediately said that they would build 3,000 new houses on Palestinian soil.
This not only showed disrespect to Palestine but also displayed a total disregard for the United Nations.
Several nations instantly voiced their disdain at Israel’s actions, some European States even considering the removal of the Israeli Ambassadors from their countries.
President Obama, of the United States, also voiced his displeasure at the Israeli statement.
Israel though remains unrepentant and insists that it will continue with its stated plans, regardless of world opinion.
This behavior comes as no surprise to many, as Israel is responsible for ignoring more UN initiatives and rulings than any other country, including Syria, Iran and North Korea.
Many though, may be surprised that Israel ignores the voice of the United States, after all it is the United States that arms, finances and protects Israel.

Perhaps the only country that has the potential to sway Israelis decision is the United States but they won’t.
It is perhaps a little ironic that in the “jungle” of the world, the self proclaimed tamer of the beasts (the US) cannot even keep its pet on a leash.
Perhaps that analogy is wrong!
Of the United States and Israel: Which is the master and which is the pet?
- Fingers Up to the United States
In Israel there was a court case, a symbolic case to try to just bring closure to a sad death. The case was for $1 but Israel gave its own gesture.
- Man Up America
Once again it would appear that the US media are more concerned with protecting their elite leaders than informing the public of the truth. It is time that the leaders of the US "manned up" and starting taking responsibility for their actions and sto
