U.S. Stands Alone Beside Israel’s Policy of Pissing Off Muslims

Since I’m being a news dork this week, allow me to paraphrase an AP wire report on our nation’s latest outrage:

UNITED NATIONS – The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution Tuesday demanding that Israel halt construction of a barrier jutting deep into the West Bank and dismantle the section already built. It raised the possibility of further U.N. action if Israel doesn’t comply.

The vote was 144 in favor, 4 opposed and 12 abstentions.

The United States … voted against it along with Israel, the Marshall Islands and Micronesia.

The resolutions of the 191-nation General Assembly are not legally binding, but they are considered a reflection of international opinion.

Of course, we vetoed a Security Council resolution last week, because it was written by hot-headed Arabs. So, they took their message to the streets and got it cleaned up by the EU, so that we could demonstrate just where we stand in our War on Terrorism: with a nation founded as a result of the Holocaust busily walling its religious minority in to ghettos.

When we ask, “Why do they hate us,” this vote might lend a clue.

I’m driving to Boston tomorrow. It will be nice to be away from my news aggregator project for nearly a week. I’ll take some pictures with the digital camera I recently splurged on and post them here. It is nice that I get to live in the United States, and not have to worry about things like a failed national security regimen, and an administration hell-bent on pissing off anyone who might feel compelled to take advantage of these failures.
