Barack Obama has told the UN General Assembly the Palestinians deserve their own state, but that this would only be achieved through talks with Israel.
The US president's speech came as diplomatic efforts for Palestinian UN membership intensified, while thousands rallied in the West Bank.
"Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the UN," he said.

Everybody refers to the Samson Option like it's unheard of... there's not a country out there that would do any different if facing annihilation. That being said it should be expected of everybody surrounding Israel as well.....maybe they don't have the nuclear arsenal but the amount of conventional weapons is enough to do the job. The Israeli submarines are probably the only thing keeping Israel from being a pockmark on the Earth if the Muslim world was to unify and attack.
If Palestine gets statehood and Israel attacks then aren't we bound by contract to protect Palestine from Israel and vice versa??
I heard Israel has 200 Nukes and maybe up to 1000.. well considering the yield would be around 100sq miles of death per warheard 1000x100=100,000sq miles. Iran is roughly 7,890,000sq miles and Israel is about 8,000sq miles I don't think Israel can effectively Annihilate any surrounding country as efficiently/quickly as they can be Annihilated.
I know I'm not taking into account fallout an etc etc I'm just talking instant Death range because that is what will stop retalitory strikes. Israel is a formidable opponent to say the least but in terms of destruction Israel can be Erased compared to them just damaging country's
