'First in line'

Once more the United States has blocked a United Nations resolution condemning the barbaric acts of the Israeli army recently in Bit Hanuon. There were 21 people killed, including eight children and 13 members of one family and more than 45 injured.

The United States used its veto more than 40 times to protect Israel in the U.N. How many Palestinians have to die before the U.S. will support a resolution and stand by the Palestinian people? When it comes to condemning the Palestinians, the United States will be the first in line to do so.

Can anyone see the mediation the U.S. is doing between Palestine and Israel? All I see is the U.S. taking the side of Israel 100% of the time. Now I understand why the Arab world does not like us.
