Bias breeds disillusionment
US pro-Israel bias, evidenced again in Geneva, has even the top levels of the Palestinian leadership thinking about ditching the two-state solution, writes Khaled Amayreh in Ramallah
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has voiced deep disillusionment over the "diluted and duplicitous" American stance towards the issue of Jewish settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Palestinian officials in Ramallah called the American position unacceptable and incompatible with the rule of international law. "The US says it is against settlements and settlement expansion, but what we see on the ground is that the US government is voting against any international resolution critical of the Israeli settlement policy."
