I understand you people have a very hard time treating world wide politics without emotions and self made morals getting in the way, so this is the
very little help I can offer:
The US (and Israel for that matter) want the Palestinians to have a functional government before they declare independent and form a legit state. In
reality, postponing the UN bid for statehood only helps the Palestinians in turning into a country.
For example - Last weeks there was a cease fire between Gaza and Israel that could not hold grounds due to the fact Hamas (closest there is to a
ruling factor in Gaza) could not control "it's" people from shooting rockets at Israel despite the cease fire. Whether it was it's own people or
people from little unknown different organizations, it does not matter. The fact of the matter is that nobody is able to control the population in
Gaza at the moment.
Now, would it seem logical in your eyes to give the Palestinians independent status and as a state while this mess is going on back there? Hint: when
they are declared as an independent country and cannot hold their people from shooting at Israel, they will be punished severely, as it will not be
considered a shooting by a terror force like it is currently, it will be considered an act of war by an independent nation. They will be dealt with
not by using smart/precision bombs, but with heavy carpet bombings that will make the last years look like a joke compared to what they will
Or, in other words, an all out war. - And if anyone had any doubts, Israeli air force holds enough firepower to completely demolish every inch of the
Gaza strip in about 10 bombing runs which will take less than several hours. So far it did not happen because there was no need to destroy the entire
strip, but if an independent country fires at us be sure that this is what will happen.
That is not a scenario that Israel or the west wishes (and I'm sure none of you want it aswell), so it is rather obvious the better option is to let
the situation in Gaza turn more stable for them to have a strong leadership that can control it's people.
But of course, you guys cannot even begin to think logically and only use your emotions in issues like these, so the answers we get are much less
constructive than the above claims.
Example of common answers for this issue: "US uses their stupid veto powers to hold back the Palestinian oppressed people!!!" - "Israel controls the
US and does what it wants!!" - "Western leaders don't give a damn about the Palestinians!!!". You know, the usual Boo hoo everyone is against us and I
can't see why!!!
