Palestine's bid for recognition sucessful
(visit the link for the full news article)
The UN General Assembly has voted overwhelmingly to recognise Palestine as a non-member state, giving a major diplomatic triumph to president Mahmud Abbas despite fierce opposition from the United States and Israel.
The 193-member assembly voted 138-9 with 41 abstentions for the resolution which enables the Palestinians to join UN agencies and sign international treaties.

So the Palestinians are now recognized as a state, but because of their rocket bombardment they were denied U.N. membership. Sounds bout right.

Yes, let's take a closer look at the post and let's start with checking the source.
"His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."
Yet every day, Palestinians attack Israel, and state that they want the destruction of that nation, and the death of every Jewish person. Flowery political statements don't erase the reality of all the hate towards the nation of Israel. Plus, there is still no nation of Palestine. Not on old maps, either.

So , you are saying that Turkey and Iraq are being pressured into giving the Kurds a homeland ? For some reason I don't see anyone caring enough to push the Kurdish state issue . And truth be tole , the only reason any of these Arab states give a dam about the Palistinians is because of the Jews .
Another little secret I will let out , if Israel ever does fall ,the Arabs will not let the Palestinians rule over Jerusalem.
People who claim israel is stealing palestinian land are nuts. PALESTINE NEVER OFFICIALLY EXISTED AS A NATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Israelis have no more right to this area than anyone else. Learn to f'ing co-exist. Something greedy selfish racist jews could do with a big lesson in!
