for 30 years attempts at meaningful autonomy , (fiduciary , control of borders
true autonomy ) have not been meet by the us voting in opposition at the UN .
I can imagine , abstaining , voting neg. for independence along these issues
illustrate some conflict of interest along Israeli development in the territories.
development is not totally an negative influence because of the jobs and money
generated. but rebranding products , the imposition of tax collections,
w/ holding of tax revenue for political gain by Israel is dubious .
the israelian continuing expansion in the occupied territories against international
consensus , shows an total disregard for negotiations in good faith.
expanding land for latter barter/ land swaps w/out proper authority.
the uk and us by investing and financing projects for Israel in Palestinian lands
is complicity, adding ,abetting and somewhat reinforcing Israel actions.
