No Peace Talks, Only Conquest

Israel has never been serious about peace talks of any kind, because they know we'll let them do whatever the hell they want:
Israel has revealed plans to build nearly 1,300 housing units for Jewish settlers in occupied East Jerusalem.

Building settlements is illegal under international law and recent efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks have stalled over the issue.

The announcement comes as Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is on an official visit to the US.

Palestinian officials have reportedly described the move as an Israeli attempt to sabotage the talks.

"We thought that Netanyahu was going to the United States to stop settlement activity and restart negotiations, but it is clear to us that he is determined to destroy the talks," chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.
We have the power to stop this, we just choose not to. Obama initially looked like he was gonna take a hard line with Israel, but has since backed off.

I wish more people would acknowledge the direct link between our unconditional support of Israel and their monstrous actions, because...well... it does exist.

The rest of the world isn't blind to this, it would be nice if our media stopped reporting with it's head in the sand.
