Well, how nice to find Ms Clinton has caught up with the world’s people.

Despite what their governments may say under various kinds of pressures, most people in the world know Israel’s policy of settlements is not legitimate. Indeed, it is outright theft, besides breaking international agreements on occupations.

It is disheartening to see the way Obama – starting with a fresh mandate, a good mind, and the knowledge that there can be no peace without real pressure on Israel – has given in to the relentless efforts of the Israel Lobby.

There seems to be no hope for a rational and humane settlement. Israel just carries on with apartheid and a gradual, relentless ethnic-cleansing while it stands in contempt of dozens of UN resolutions, any one of which could have been used as a reason for UN military intervention.

And we are to simply pretend it is not happening and never criticize Israel for fear of being called anti-Semitic.

A true nightmare for human rights and freedom.
