U.S. Vetoes Resolution Condemning Israel for Three UN Worker Deaths

This is a judgment call. Since this is an Arab backed resolution ... and we're the only country that backs Israel, it doesn't seem out of place that the US would stand for its own when the Arab League does the same thing. These were UN workers that were killed so the Arab League felt they could slip something through on sympathy, or make the US veto it and show favoritism.

Well, okay, favoritism shown ... but UN workers can also be a little smarter. Don't have Palestinians with guns hiding in your building and don't hold your cell phone in your hand anywhere near them when you do it. These are soldiers, after all, in a place where everyone wants to kill them.

The Arab resolution demanded that Israel "refrain from the excessive and disproportionate use of force in the Occupied Palestinian territories." Force would be completely unnecessary if they would simply stop funding the Palestinian culture of death.
