Senior members of House urge Obama to veto Security Council resolution on 'settlements'

A group of senior members of the US House of Representatives has sent a letter to President Obama urging him to veto the 'Palestinian'-sponsored resolution condemning Israeli 'settlements' that is to be voted upon in the UN Security Council next month.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and five fellow senior Members of Congress sent a bipartisan letter today to the President, requesting that the Administration take a number of steps to advance security and peace between Israel and the Palestinians, including to pledge to veto a pending United Nations Security Council resolution that condemns Israel. The letter also calls on the President to hold the Palestinian leadership accountable for their actions that undermine opportunities for peace and security. In addition to Ros-Lehtinen, the letter was signed by: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor; House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer; Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Howard L. Berman; and U.S. Reps. Steve Chabot and Gary L. Ackerman, the Chairman-designate and Ranking Member-designate, respectively, of the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia.
The more I see of Ros-Lehtinen, the more I hope she'll run for higher office some day.

There's no guarantee Obama will do the right thing.

He doesn't want to be unpopular - even when the rest of the world would like to beat up the Jews.

What could go wrong indeed
