Peres said that, "for our existence, we need the friendship of the United States of America."

There were air strikes last night in central Gaza. It doesn't get a mention any more in UK news. Strange as the BBC were obsessed by the attacks not so long ago.
Arab countries will submit a draft resolution to the UN, protesting Israel's defiant construction of illegal settlements on the occupied Palestinian lands.

Shaath, however, claimed that it is “difficult” for the United States to stand in the way of the resolution "after it has publicly opposed the settlement."
The UN and the European Union have underlined the illegality of the settler units under the international law.
Hasn't stopped them before..
Why would it now??
