Wednesday, October 15, 2003 - U.S. vetoes resolution condemning Israeli security wall - U.S. vetoes resolution condemning Israeli security wall: "UNITED NATIONS (AP) — After a U.S. veto in the Security Council, the Palestinians promised to seek a U.N. General Assembly vote on a resolution condemning Israel for building a massive security fence that critics say essentially freezes the Mideast peace process.

The United States was the lone vote against the resolution on the 15-member Security Council Tuesday, though four nations abstained. The vote came after a daylong open debate in which most of the 40 nations that spoke condemned Israel for building the barrier, which cuts into the West Bank, as a grab for land."

Yes, just what I loove to see. The U.S. endorsing a large dividing wall that takes land from the 'natives'.
