US vetoes UNSC resolution on Israeli settlements

Dear friends,

President Obama has just missed out on an opportunity to bring a major change in direction to the Peace Process between Palestine and Israel by vetoing a resoltion which had been backed by over 130 members including all 14 other members of the security Council (even the UK):

Please write to President Obamam telling him how you feel about his decision:

Thanks for your support,

Suggested email to President Obama:

Dear President Obama,

After promsing a better relationship with the Arab World, I am astonished and bewildered by your cowardly response to the Resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories as an obstacle to peace.

All fourteen other members of the security council (including the UK) backed the resolution while you ceded to Israeli pressure groups. Israel has had problems with its neighbours since its formation and it is now time for a tougher stance from the US if a peaceful solution is to be found.

I urge you to lead the way to two-State solution. I urge you to change your position and back the resolution.

Your sincerely,
