US: We stand by Israel at UN

"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and America will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." - Jewish Prime Monster, Ariel Sharon
The US says it would not withdraw its support for Israel at the UN, denying reports that it would let the body target the occupation of the Palestinian lands.

British newspaper The Guardian said on Thursday that the US deputy Middle East envoy David Hale had promised the Palestinian Authority that Washington would consider letting the United Nations Security Council attack Israel if it found Tel Aviv's settlement construction in the West Bank "provocative."

The paper said this meant that Washington was to abstain from voting on the council's anti-Israeli resolutions instead of vetoing them.

Washington has invariably invoked the veto power to block the UN resolutions against the Israeli aggression on the Palestinians and the regime's building up the occupied lands.

White House spokesman Tommy Vietor rejected the Guardian report, thus confirming the trend.

"This report is inaccurate," he was quoted as saying in a piece published in the American news and analysis website Politico. The US "policy about issues relating to Israel at the UN is clear and will not change."

"We will continue to speak out strongly for Israel's right to self-defense and to oppose efforts to single Israel out unfairly for criticism," he added.

The comments came as the Gaza Strip is far from recovering from the January 2008-September 2009 Israeli raids which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians.

The UN headquarters in New York is, meanwhile, set to host a review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The meeting is expected to make mention of Israel's non-membership of the treaty despite its widely-reported ownership of hundreds of nuclear warheads.

Analysts, though, dismiss the prospects of any anti-Israeli progress, citing Washington's guardianship of Tel Aviv's interests PressTV

'US weapons' destabilize Middle East
Amid US and Israeli claims of arms transfer against Damascus, Syria says it is the United States' military reinforcement of Israel which harms the Middle East.

"What destabilizes the region is the United Sates supplying significant quantities of sophisticated weaponry to Israel and the fact that Washington adheres to the unjust allegations made by the Israeli government against Syria," Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem was quoted by AFP

'Israeli attack to provoke retaliation'
