Do you support the United Nations' decision to recognize Palestine as a "non-member observer" state?
You don't want to support a nation controlled by terrorist you say. Sounds fair, but in that case you probably
shouldn't support Israel or alot of nations for that matter.
Who knew ignorance could be so funny!
I didn't know Ahamadinejad used Show of Hands.
The UN helping Hamas? Wow.... I'm for one am shocked.....
@Spudman You hate them all? So does Obama! Obama hates anybody who isn't a Muslim!
If the Palestinians completely disowned and expelled Hamas, I'd be all for it. Until then, I'm not supporting any nation controlled by a terrorist organization. Period.
In 1967 Israel launched the surprise attack. They also attacked the USS Liberty (American ship) which injured/killed 200 Americans
Also means they can now choose to request to become an official member state and/or nation.
I really don't give a hoot what the UN does. ????????????????
There isn't any harm just some are so blinded by our one sided media and corrupt politicians. Just ignore the
people acting like it's a bad thing.
And I guess it's ok to support the killing and oppression of Palestinians.
Yeah because it's joke to help stop the oppression and killing of innocent people (Palestinians).
American Jews are actually divided on the issue. There are more evangelical and fundamentalist Christian super pacs lobbying for Israel than there are Jewish ones. Same in Israel, many there support a two-state solution.
Americans are so blind sided by media and all the rich Zionist Jewish supporters. It's hilarious to watch how ignorant most of us are to this issue.
They weren't supposed to win. Should of gassed the lot of them.
I don't know about everything you said, but the first one is definatly not true. How could they know they are about to be bombed in a few seconds? They have no time to defend themselves!
Thank you, gradsmart.
Are you serious? You think Israel gave them a home? How about Palestinians lived there first, And were forced into giving a home to Israelis! Now it's time for a two state solution with historic borders. Read some history! And by that I mean a book, I don't mean watch Fox News.
Palestine is not a terrorist organization
Palestine DOES NOT enforce sharia law and in fact many citizens of Palestine are Christians
The land was never theirs to take.
Typical lib....personal attack
Palestine was never a country. Get your facts straight.
Of course not. Any usefulness the UN may have ever had has long since dissipated. It is now the tool used by the rest of the world to steal American wealth and freedom. The UN is the King George of our day. Let us loose the bands of tyranny and withdraw from its voluntary(?) servitude at once!
The UN becomes even more of a joke!!!!
Those who disrespect Israel will fall victim to the Sheeny Curse.
Yes, its a good start. I support it and so does the Holy Father Though I am sure it doesn't matter to many of you, it should to the Catholic out there, even though it not a dogmatic teaching or infallible. Here a link the Vatican response: www.zenit.org/article-36067?l=english
I think that's going a little far. To the victor goes the spoils. Re 6 day war. I do think its fine to recognize them as a country. It would help talks.
So seven countries in 1967 tried to EXTERMINATE the Jews and Israel won....and now Israel has to give the land back??? Wtf have you people been smoking!
Clearly, because they helped create Israel in the first place.
No, I hate the jews. I hate the Christians. And I hate Israel. Obama is still shelling out millions annually to support the Israelis. And the United States voted against Palestine becoming recognized as a state, dipstick. This is one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Obama.
Bush started this. Obama can't stop it because it would destroy him covering up his anti-Israeli agenda.
Then why did we subdivide the British colony in the first place. The Israelites only owned 7% of the land and were 30% of the population, but received 55% of the land. Then conquered another 75% of what was to be Palestine
They are "occupied" because you technically can't take land from wars anymore
That's why we still give $8 million a day to them right?
OBAMA refuses to stop funding to United Nations. CLINTON says that Israel needs to be 'generous' to Palestine. The Obama Administration IS Anti-Israel. He HATES the Jews and he HATES the Christians and most of all, he HATES Israel!
Does Palestine even exist with any recognized sovereignty?
Really because every major country except US and Isreal voted for it, so apparently everyone other country is either anti sematic or maybe they realize that isreal has no right to simply claim they land from a people who dont want to live under them
The UN is clearly an anti Semitic organization
Both sides need to let go of their stupid racial and religious prejudices and just learn to agree to disagree. However, seeing as this is extremely unlikely to happen, I just want the my country to get the hell out before we get involved in an imminent war. Offer asylum to refugees, but that's it...
The UN is not needed. If the Palestinians want a state, let their Egyptian friends give them a chunk of the Sinai. Case solved. Israel should not be subdivided. It is waaaaaay too small.
What is the harm in recognizing them as a state?
The "Palestinians" are not incarcerated. They are refugees that were unwanted in Arab countries and Israel is the only one that gave them a home.
Naoman16, read Munkey's other comments. There is a lot of spiteful rhetoric that brought me to that conclusion. I didn't jump the gun or assume anything. I formed that opinion based on Munkey's statements.
@FRZNLGHT wow, way to jump the gun here! You can support one side without hating an entire religion/race. All Munkey said was that the Israelis have committed war crimes, which they have. He said nothing about any of the other peoples in that region, so don't make assumptions here...just sayin'.
@Jason19 that is an extremely narrow and unwisely sweeping way of seeing things. You can't say that everyone who votes for a certain political group is a terrorist. That is foolish. Sometimes, people are just TIRED of all the fighting and will seize the 1st option given to them for peace.
You've really only seen the Western media spin of things. You can't really claim something so accusatory like that because the US is so extremely biased in Israel's favor and, therefore, depicts Israel as the victim. Both sides are extremely petty and still hold grudges that go back millenniums.
The UN is a joke.
