The American Foreign Policy in the Middle East
Flawed, unfair or shortsighted at least,
Nations act in their national interest.
Yes, you care for the Jewish votes.
Unfriendly and insulting is this policy
Is it your religion, policy and creed,
Why is the result so little, so mediocre?
Let there be justice, let freedom thrive,
Check and see your policy reviews;
In the Holy Land, O America rededicate
--- Zaki Ahmad Sabih
Note: On 12/15/01, once again the United States sided with
Israel, and vetoed the UN resolution calling for the placement of International
Monitors between Occupied Territories and Israel. Also see, "UN impotence
