    Obama has maintained U.S. ties with Israel, but like most of the world, he views increased settlements as a land grab and illegal. He did not endorse the resolution with a "yes" vote specifically because he DOES support the nation of Israel, but he did not veto it because he believes that, in the instance of the settlements, Israel is in the wrong. That's what ethical individuals and nations do, they put justice above the ties of friendship.
