What Israel shares with the US?

""Barak said the United States and Israel share the same beliefs in freedom, liberty, democracy and human dignity. The United States, he said, is a "moral beacon" to the people of the turbulent region."

General Assembly must first sort out its status. The fear is that Palestine would try to bring war crime charges against Israel.""
