Palestinian authorities have called for Irish support in its global campaign to have Palestine recognised as a United Nations member state. The Palestinian ambassador to Ireland met a cross-party delegation of TDs along with the so-called “flying chair”, a handcrafted symbol of the state’s statehood bid.

[...]

Ambassador Dr Hikmat Ajjuri said they wanted to convey to TDs the link between Palestine and Ireland.

“The historic relationship and the long friendship between us and Ireland, I think needs us to ask and to request from our friends in Ireland to support us in this move,” he said.



The United States aren't pleased:




The United States, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has said it will veto any application

My thoughts:



I believe that the Palestinians are persecuted. Whether or not their joining of the United Nations is good thing for them or could ever happen, I do not know. Futhermore, I do not know the potential extent of Ireland's support.

I look forward to the insight of other members.

It would be the only logical first step towards peace and stability in the region. there is no just reasoning to keep those people under occupation this long. Terrorism? the reaction to the problem causes the problem. They must keep them occupied because they will become terrorists, but they become terrorists because they are occupied and have no hope.

ending that cycle can only lead to peace (if the US and Israel allow it)

The Palestinians are not being persecuted. This whole thing is a farce, because the palies have a home already, its called Jordan. Most of what was originally Palestine, is now Jordan. The Palestine issue is nothing more than a ploy to Kill or force Israelis to move, in order to create the Middle Eastern Caliphate. Palestine/Israel belongs to the Jews first.

lol what are you talking about. Have you forgotten Israelis invaded Palestine & most of its GOOD land after the Arab revolt? Though I support Israel's supremacy over Arabs since I believe Jews are superior, get your facts right.

I wonder what the people of Ireland think about this?

They've got some experience with religious extremism, terrorism, and the occupation those things cause.

Put down the revisionist history books for a second... the Arabs Invaded Palestine first. Islam wasnt around 2000 years ago


Jews and Muslims lived in the *region* of Palestine under Turkish rule. After the Ottoman empire collapsed, muslims got their own states, and so did Jews. So, Jews had it, and Muslims took it

Exactly what power does Ireland have at the UN. I didn't think they had much say in anything.

As someone living in the north, I can assue you that Irelands citizens do support them...for the simple fact that they view Israel as the British.

This can be seen with murals, billboards supporting them in West belfast for one.

Also a few years back the prodestants where flying the Israel flag during the twelth to show solidarity to them.

Both sides over here take diffrent sides.

Lets not turn my comments into any form of bigority, we get enough of that over here.

Ps im in the view that the Palestinians are in the right, (coming from a prod)

Every group of people should have their right to exist recognized in the 21st Century world.

the peace process froze after the camp david accord when president carter tried to solve the problem.
decades of diplomatic useless hot air later, still no change.

membership in the un, from what i can see, is an attempt to end the paralysis.

while an eternal status quo suits israel's politicians, it benefits no one else.

king david had the palestinians fighting in his army, could israel ever have that level of wisdom again?
