I'm happy for Palestine as they will probably gain their status. What worries me is what will the Israeli response be? Both the US and Israel have claimed that there will be consequences if they go forward with this bid.
Here is another piece of information that pissed me off:
The US and Israel have opposed the UN application, insisting only direct talks on a peace accord can produce an accord that will create a Palestinian state.
A successful vote could cost the United Nations money, as US law prohibits funding to international bodies that recognise a Palestinian state.
About $US200 million ($A191 million) in development aid to the Palestinian Authority is currently blocked in the US Congress, and State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that could also be at risk.
"Obviously, if they take this step it's going to complicate the way the Congress looks at the Palestinians," Ms Nuland told a briefing.
This is more proof of how much Israel controls the United States foreign policy,
Why on earth would the US have a law that prohibits funding to international bodies that recognise a Palestinian state.
This leaves me speechless.
I do not see it in your link so I will mention that the draft for their bid has been submitted
