As usual Epic misunderstands what's happening here.
This has nothing to do with Islamicists. Every other member of the UN Security Council agrees that the settlements are illegal.
The US -- at least officially - has always agreed that the settlements are illegal. Even though in practice the US has looked the other way -- and protected Israel's illegal settlements with a veto.
Every judge on the international court -- including the US judge -- agrees that the settlements are illegal.
So what's the big deal -- if the US finally decides to stop vetoing the Security Council and to vote with the rest of the world?
The only people who disagree are the Zionists -- and their strange allies, the fundamentalist Christian idiots like Epic who have not one iota in hell about the background and how all of this came to pass (just as they have no clue about what Jesus actually taught.)
If Obama has decided to take a teensy-weensy step and join the international consensus- - well and good.
But in reality it amounts to no more than acknowledging what everyone already knows.
You have to suspect that what's happened in Egypt has tipped the scales, here. Revolution is sweeping the Arab world. For decades, US policy in the region has been a disaster. Siding with dictators, in part, because Israel wanted it that way ultimately isolates the US, makes us look like hypocrites given our Declaration of Independence (and our constant prattling about freedom), in a world where we need friends more than ever.
