Fatah official: The US veto represents "the mark of Cain"

Following the US veto of the recent UN Security Council resolution on the issue of Israeli building in Jerusalem and the West Bank (Feb. 18, 2011), the Palestinian Authority stepped up its verbal attacks against President Obama personally and the United States in general:
"Palestinians burned again by the American veto fire..."
"Secretary of the Fatah movement in Nablus, Mahmoud Shtayyeh, told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that the American veto represents a mark of Cain on the forehead of the Barack Obama administration, which boasts of extending its patronage to the peace process. Ashtiyeh stated that it is impossible to trust the American administration as the patron of the peace process following its declared agreement to continuation of construction in the settlements and in the occupied city of Jerusalem. He noted that for decades the American position has been the same, unchanging position, always leaning towards Israel's benefit." Click to view bulletin
