UN Approves Palestinian Observer Status Resolution

Dhimmi’s and Israel haters around the world rejoiced

(NY Times) The United Nations voted overwhelmingly Thursday to recognize a Palestinian state, a long-sought victory for the Palestinians and an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the United States.

The resolution upgrading the Palestinians’ status to a nonmember observer state at the U.N. was approved by a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions, in the 193-member world body.

A Palestinian flag was quickly unfurled on the floor of the General Assembly, behind the Palestinian delegation. In the West Bank city of Ramallah, hundreds crowded into the main square waved Palestinian flags and chanted “God is great.” Others who had watched the vote on outdoor screens and television sets hugged, honked and set off fireworks before dancing in the streets.

Palestinians don’t control their own airspace or borders. Half the leadership is comprised of terrorists. Their only exports are suicide bombers and armed missiles.

The vote grants Abbas an overwhelming international endorsement for his key position: establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, the territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war. With Netanyahu opposed to a pullback to the 1967 lines, this should strengthen Abbas’ hand if peace talks resume.

The overwhelming vote also could help Abbas restore some of his standing, which has been eroded by years of standstill in peace efforts. His rival, Hamas, deeply entrenched in Gaza, has seen its popularity rise after an Israeli offensive on targets linked to the Islamic militant group there earlier this month.

Abbas hasn’t been in Gaza in 6 years. After Hamas took over and threw members of Abbas’ party off of 12 story buildings, he hasn’t even seen the area. It’s a terrorist state, a bankrupt state, and undemocratic.

    Thank you for using the term “democratic” properly and in context. It is a verb. It is an describer of action. It is not a noun. It is not the official name of one political party. While the more descriptive “UNdemocratic” does reflect the nature of the party, it is not the official name of the liberals’ party.

    Yeah, tell me time is not drawing shorter and shorter. With the world turning more and more against Israel for merely existing. With more states and parties who have nothing in common with Islam and its terrorists, they continue to throw more support behind them.

    You should see this “state” plan that the terrorists have tried to foist upon Israel. It would bifurcate Jerusalem as well as the country of Israel. It would merge Gaza and West Bank together with a corridor bisecting Israel.

    Yes. that is purely logical and reasonable. yep. And the world has gotten behind it. Lunacy and vilification is now the rule.

  2. It’s simply amazing that most of the world is on the same side as Iran, instead of on the side of Israel.

    And, as we so often say, it’s long past time to get out of the UN and stop funding an organization made up of dictators, terrorists, and terrorist appeasers.

    Time to kick them out of the USA. Let them build their new billion dollar building in Babylon.

    Stop funding them,… that will help the budget a bit.

    Hell, stop all foreign aid. And yeah, at this point, I’m ok with stopping assistance of Israel just to make the point. And then, we can determine aid on a one on one basis and who will defend us in the world stage.

    But then… we aren’t in charge. Socialist terrorist-lovers are.
