Well, for those of us actually interested in the thread, what are we thinking about statehood for the Palesteins? Should it be up to the Israeallahs or not?

But as far as your question goes, considering the US are the alien power intervening so consistently in this Middle-East matter, I think the real question is "should it be up to the US or not?" Particularly as Chomsky puts it, as the Obama administration's actions this year in respect of Palestine are not only in opposition to the US's own publicly declared position but also in opposition to "overwhelming international consensus".
