Israel and US foreign policy

leave a comment »

Based on the US veto of a completely reasonable UN resolution condemning the illegal settlements that Israel continues to support, it seems evident that US foreign policy is dictated by Israel. The vote was against the best interests of the US (though I’m sure it saved Obama a lot of trouble with the GOP, and so far as I can tell, he will do just about anything to try to placate them), and it served to isolate the US further from its allies and the international community. It also seems to underscore that the US will support Israel in anything it does, however illegal and morally indefensible the action may be.
