for anyone interested in the language being by some posters in this thread you should do a google for "The Israel Project’s 2009 Global Language Dictionary".
Last time its mentioned on boards is five years ago so might be worth mentioning again.
A few of the posts here are using that playbook,
and when you watch a few interviews you can nearly predict what's going to be said next.
the current ambassador to the UK is a dinger for it.

They need intervention on humanitarian grounds. It's obvious the U.S. and Russia have their agendas foremost.

Hadn’t seen that before but they have some necks.
Plenty of them in here too it seems.

The lobby is in the White House and at every level of US politics. Trumps daughter, Ivanka, is married to Jared Kushner, whose family is so embedded in the Israeli dominance of American politics that Netanyahu once literally slept in Jared Kushner's bed (Jared apparently slept in the basement that night).

Ireland thinks it has a special relationship with the US because once a year Irish politicians gets to visit the President of the US with a bowl of shamrock. Israel has 24/7 access to the US leadership. It is a rite of passage for US politicians to visit Israel and express their deep and abiding love of the country and their determination to advance it's interests at any cost to the US. US states like Florida have passed laws to make it illegal to criticise Israel.

Fantasies about the UN intervening and confronting the IDF in defence of Palestinians are exactly that - fantasies. Any force which did actually intervene must be non-UN (as the US would exercise its veto by default), and should the IDF prove unable to quickly defeat that force with indirect US support and funding, the US would go to war directly to protect Israeli interests regardless of the cost. Simple as that.

And basically, as with most things you can blame colonial powers for this mess

You would have to think this is not going to end well for the state of Israel.

Any rational reading of moves like this, from a historical point of view, have never resulted in a positive outcome if anything its usually the opposite.

Thinking that the United states is going to come to your rescue, maybe ask the people in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq etc how that worked out for them.

Compromise is the only way to peace.
