The "honest broker"

Exactly 36 members of the House of Representatives have the courage to vote against a resolution calling on the U.S. government to oppose the Goldstone report (vs. 344 voting for this piece of, pardon my Yiddish, dreck). And I'm willing to bet a considerable number, if not all, of those 344 (and maybe even some of the 36 and the others voting "present") would still describe the United States as an "honest broker."

As Gideon Levy wrote yesterday, "The United States begs for a settlement freeze and Israel turns up its nose. This is what happens when there are no consequences for Israel's inaction."
