United States has deliberately chosen blindness over sight where Israel is concerned since the establishment of it. On every step, it only supported Israel and from all aspects helped them because Jewish lobby is powerful in United States and the mass media.

The outgoing President Mr. Bush gave recent statement in which he clearly declared Hammas as extremist. Where as the new elected President Mr. Obama has so far given no such statement - except that the current policy and support with Israel will continue. So what we will get, more likely than not, is continued US patronage of a state that sponsors terrorism as a birthright. What will continue to be forgotten is the basic fact that any nation under foreign occupation has a right to resist.

A person need not be sympathetic to the Hammas cause to shed a tear for the Palestinian children killed by Israeli bombardment. It does not require the wisdom of a sage to realize that Hammas or Hizbullah are trying to fight an enemy they can't possibly defeat. What is required is peace but peace can never break out so long as US keeps turning a blind eye to Israeli barbarity and refuses to assess the situation on the ground in the capacity of an honest broker.

For the US, Israel can do no wrong whereas much of the world thinks otherwise. The distinction between the aggressor and the oppressed is clear even in European minds. What one finds in the European media is, relatively speaking, objective analysis. It is sometimes claimed in America that the European soft spot for Palestinians stems from prejudice rooted in the treatment of Jews in Europe. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are racists everywhere, and America is no exception. It is just that in some parts of the world an ear is lent to both sides of the story.
