If Murica wants a two-state solution, why it vote no?

Nothing like terrorists being allowed statehood.

Symbolic, will just divide Israel and its allies from Europe and the lesser countries any way.

Next they will be on the human rights council.

"Palestine, only 4700 rockets launched against civilian cities this year! We know human rights!"

I've heard that a large amount of support that Israel gets from US Christians is due to the fact that they believe that they're helping bring Jesus back. Don't they also believe that Israel has to be destroyed to bring about the second coming? Or am I mistaken?

ONE-HUNDRED BRAZILLION AND EIGHT PERCENT SUPPORT for Israel is required at all times. I think it's in the Constitution.

Fine, then give the people in the West Bank and Gaza full Israeli citizenship and political representation and compensate for lost property. Somehow, I think you'll hate that choice too.

The historic vote came after impassioned speeches from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who asked the UN to "issue the birth certificate of Palestine,"

WHAR LONG FORM? WHAR???

Not sure if they need to be destroyed, but they definitely don't get to go with the Christians to heaven.

From wiki

The ongoing expansion of existing settlements by Israel and the construction of settlement outposts is frequently criticized as an obstacle to the peace process by the Palestinians[24] and third parties, including the United Nations,[25] Russia,[26] the United Kingdom,[27] the European Union,[28] and the United States.[25] In July 2012, the UN Human Rights Council decided to set up a probe into Jewish settlements. Israel responded by saying it would bar the Council's experts from access to the sites.[29]


It's hard to side with the Israelis.

They believe Jerusalem will be destroyed and Israel will be conquered, yes.

Actual headline: UN recognizes Palestine as non-member observer state

For all the symbolic significance this has, the practical significance is minimal, even by UN standards.

So since "some" in palestine are terrorists and "some" in the US are terrorists, does that make all of us terrorists?

Meanwhile Israel only killed 35 children in the last two weeks alone.

So can any group of people without a country also apply? Come on tea-baggers and SEIU thugs, apply for a seat in the UN.

Do you have any insights, or anything constructive to say? Or do you just threadshiat insults on people you disagree with (or people who ask questions you don't like, like this guy), and otherwise contribute nothing?

I'm sure this thread will be perfectly reasonable and we will all be able to calmly and rationally discuss the relevant stakes in the process of finding a two-state solution to the long-standing conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians.

There's a billboard along I-75N in Atlanta stating something to the effect of "the watchers of Israel" or "what does the Bible say about Israel". I'll have to get a picture of it on my way home tonight and post it.

The UN didn't agree to anything. The UN is not an actor in these situations. 140 odd states that are members of the UN voted to upgrade Palestine to non-member state status. The Reuters headline says this is "implicit" recognition because a general assembly vote is usually considered recognition, but isn't quite the same explicit thing.

runaway06: So, the US didnt block the resolution?


So, being a member of the UN isn't the same as being a state.
For a state to become a full member of the UN, the security council has to approve too. The US has a veto in the security council, but not in the general assembly.

Either Palistine is a nation state, or Israel is guilty of running the worlds largest slave ring. It's necessarily one or the other.
