They are a sovereign state!! Palestinian, but will the U.N. ever recognize them?! Well today they took a small step!!! Small!
Say your an owner of a beautiful house and gardens and your neighbor down the step invites their friend of their bank minister over to your house and moves you out to the garden shack while the friend who now runs your house as their own starts to make your life miserable and beats on your head to the point your just about ready to expire then you plead and petition to your local city for recognition that its your right to live in your house the new owner just about does you in as a psychopathic killer when all of a sudden a verdict from the city well we might recognise your right to exist someday. Wow is this good news or just making the patient suffer more.
They just about KILLED off poor palistine for gods sake at least give these poor people a place on the planet that they can call their own and not be a victims as traumatized as they are!! I really don’t care about taking sides by I do care about this supreme injustice and still can’t fathom a people such as israel that we have grown up learning about the horrors of auschwitz and the gas chambers AFTER THAT How Israel could have NO empathy for the horror THEY themselves are causing. I just can’t come to grips with those two facts!!!
Oh yes they are the victim true to the end poor Israel defending themselves against big strikes from small stones, kids throwing rocks and handmade missles that usually smash harmlessly in the street, while Israel has obtained 300 nukes and the most advanced air amunitions launched against a primative people of women and children that are not only defenseless but can’t even RUN they are stuck in a confined space of a prison to be obliserated if they got the unlucky number of having the bomb drop on them. Gee Israel get a GoD! One whom loves people not butally destroys them, that’s the other guy we call Satan.
1463 palestinian children have been killed by israelis since september 2012
HOPEFULLY THIS DOES START TO STOP THIS MADNESS BUT AS LONG AS THE ELITE JEWISH ROTHSCHILDS WANT WORLD GENOCIDE I SERIOUSLY DOUBT VERY MUCH STOPPING ISRAEL. IT IS A STEP AND TODAY PALISTINES CONGRATULATIONS TO PRES. ABBAS FOR THE HARD WORK THE MORAL HIGH GROUND CAN’T BE FULLY EXTINGUISHED WITH ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The 193-nation U.N. General Assembly on Thursday overwhelmingly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the world body to issue its long overdue “birth certificate.”
The U.N. victory for the Palestinians was a diplomatic setback for the United States and Israel, which were joined by the hip only a handful of countries in voting against the move to upgrade the Palestinian Authority’s observer status at the United Nations to “non-member state” from “entity,” like the Vatican.
Britain called on the United States to use its influence to help break the long impasse in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Washington also called for a revival of direct negotiations.
There were 138 votes in favor, nine against and 41 abstentions. Three countries did not take part in the vote, held on the 65th anniversary of the adoption of U.N. resolution 181 that partitioned Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states.
Thousands of flag-waving Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip set off fireworks and danced in the streets to celebrate the vote.
The assembly approved the upgrade despite threats by the United States and Israel to punish the Palestinians by withholding funds for the West Bank government. U.N. envoys said Israel might not retaliate harshly against the Palestinians over the vote as long as they do not seek to join the International Criminal Court.
If the Palestinians were to join the ICC, they could file complaints with the court accusing Israel of war crimes, crimes against humanity and other serious crimes.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the vote “unfortunate and counterproductive,” while the Vatican praised the move and called for an internationally guaranteed special status for Jerusalem, something bound to irritate Israel.
The much-anticipated vote came after Abbas denounced Israel from the U.N. podium for its “aggressive policies and the perpetration of war crimes,” remarks that elicited a furious response from the Jewish state.
“Sixty-five years ago on this day, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 181, which partitioned the land of historic Palestine into two states and became the birth certificate for Israel,” Abbas told the assembly after receiving a standing ovation.
“The General Assembly is called upon today to issue a birth certificate of the reality of the State of Palestine,” he said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded quickly, condemning Abbas’ critique of Israel as “hostile and poisonous,” and full of “false propaganda. (see for yourself pics speak louder than words)
“These are not the words of a man who wants peace,” Netanyahu said in a statement released by his office. He reiterated Israeli calls for direct talks with the Palestinians, dismissing Thursday’s resolution as “meaningless.” (spoken like a true snake)
ICC THREAT- (It’s only a threat to the ones who violate the law!)
A number of Western delegations noted that Thursday’s vote should not be interpreted as formal legal recognition of a Palestinian state. Formal recognition of statehood is something that is done bilaterally, not by the United Nations.
Granting Palestinians the title of “non-member observer state” falls short of full U.N. membership – something the Palestinians failed to achieve last year. But it does have important legal implications – it would allow them access to the ICC and other international bodies, should they choose to join.
Abbas did not mention the ICC in his speech. But Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki told reporters after the vote that if Israel continued to build illegal settlements, the Palestinians might pursue the ICC route. (or bombing people,women and children stuck in a prison-Gaza)
“As long as the Israelis are not committing atrocities, are not building settlements, are not violating international law, then we don’t see any reason to go anywhere,” he said.
“If the Israelis continue with such policy – aggression, settlements, assassinations, attacks, confiscations, building walls – violating international law, then we have no other remedy but really to knock those to other places,” Maliki said.
In Washington, a group of four chicken-shit Republican and Democratic puppet senators announced legislation that would close the Palestinian office in Washington unless the Palestinians enter “meaningful negotiations” with Israel, and eliminate all U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority if it turns to the ICC.
“I fear the Palestinian Authority will now be able to use the United Nations as a political club against Israel,” said Israel’s Rep. Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the sponsors.
Abbas led the campaign to win support for the resolution, which followed an eight-day conflict this month between Israel and bombing children in the Gaza Strip, who are pledged to Israel’s destruction and oppose a negotiated peace.(see photo)
The vote highlighted how deeply divided Europe is on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Europe which has a partial concience and sorta can recognise truth and sorta can see evil but just quite can’t stand up to jewish bankers who run the entire centralized banking and media cartel. But they almost get it!! They aren’t hook line and sinker sunk like AMERICA’S Congress and President! thanks to the ponzi money scheme in place where US gives Israel billions each year that Israel turns around and BUYS Congress. We got the best congress money can buy if your a state called Israel.
At least 17 European nations voted in favor of the Palestinian resolution, including Austria, France, Italy, Norway and Spain. Abbas had focused his lobbying efforts on Europe, which supplies much of the aid the Palestinian Authority relies on. Britain, Germany and others chose to abstain ( bankers too strong here to take a stand on truth and justice)
The pro-Israel puppydogs Czech Republic in Europe, joins the United States, Israel, Canada, Panama and the tiny Pacific Island states Nauru, Palau, Marshall Islands and Micronesia in voting against the move.
‘HOPE SOME REASON WILL PREVAIL’
Peace talks have been stalled for two years, mainly over Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which have expanded despite being deemed illegal by most of the world. There are 4.3 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.
Gee I wonder why they don’t give us our settlements we just want a little more room! Says the genocidal maniacs with the unhuman appetite for bombing children in a barrel.
After the vote, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations pit-vipor Susan Rice called for the immediate resumption of peace talks (over the barrel of a gun).
“The Palestinian people will wake up tomorrow and find that little about their lives has changed save that the prospects of a durable peace have only receded,” she said. (no help for your voting, Isn’t she trully discusting!)
She added that both parties should “avoid any further provocative actions in the region, in New York or elsewhere.” (they make her shine when they want her for secratary of state the rothschild’s pet snake.)
Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said he hoped all sides would use the vote to push for new breakthroughs in the peace process.
“I hope there will be no punitive measures,” Fayyad told Reuters in Washington, where he was attending a conference. (don’t suiside me, spoken as a real victim)
“I hope that some reason will prevail and the opportunity will be taken to take advantage of what happened today in favor of getting a political process moving,” he said.
Britain’s U.N. ambassador, Mark Lyall Grant, told reporters it was time for recently re-elected U.S. President Barack Obama to make a new push for peace.
“We believe the window for the two-state solution is closing,” he said. “That is why we are encouraging the United States and other key international actors to grasp this opportunity and use the next 12 months as a way to really break through this impasse.”
