The US is neither rich nor powerful enough to keep Israel and American Israeli
lobbies like AIPAC from controlling America’s foreign policy toward Israel: Every
US legislator knows his/her every vote regarding Israel is being scrutinized for any
sign of wavering from unconditional US support of Israel, no matter how
aggressively Israel steals Palestinian land. Any deviation from Israel’s party line by
the legislator? The Jewish network gets busy, and he’s out at the next election.

Cleansing of Palestine” “The Lemon Tree” (books).

going to do the same for the Palestinians?

This pouting behavior of the U.S. toward Palestine and toward UNESCO is such a prime example of cutting off your nose to spite your face that it is almost impossible to accept it with a straight face as a serious foreign policy response coming from the “richest and most powerful” nation in the world.
