Israel has had anumber of UN security council resolutions vetoed by 1

Correct, and isn't it just so significant that our veto means more than the French veto. But even more significant, even if we didn't veto these pathetic resolutions introduced by certain anti-Semitic Arab controlled European nations, who exactly would make Israeli comply? Who would dare face the Israeli military? Not the Arabs; they've learned their lesson there time and time again. The French? I don't think so. Just like who was going to stop us from bringing down the Iraqi tyrant no matter what the weak and silly and oil deprived and depraved Europeans said or thought.
Yet, there was one resolution that was introduced in the U.N. concerning Israel did pass. We did not veto it. In fact, we voted for it. But, that was when the U.N. actually stood for something.
