US pushes back against Europeans on Israel

The United States has hit back against the United Nations Security Council for its criticism against the United States' protecting Israel in the Security Council. This is from the first link.
The White House stressed that it hasn't joined a UN Security Council condemnation of Israeli settlement construction because it does not believe that Security Council declarations are the way to restart talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland said that Israel knows Washington's position on the issue, and the best way to deal with the conflict is for the two sides to resume direct negotiations.
And the chances of that happening at the present time are slim or none.
