    The UN will vote to upgrade Palestine's status from a "non-member observer entity" to "non-member observer state." The US and Israel are the leading opposition in this vote.

    I personally am in favor of this measure. What do you guys thing?

    Zach,
    I have for the longest time been a supporter of Palestine. Even though I admit they have sometimes done crazy things or handled themselves badly. For the most part I feel that they are the victim that Israel always claims to be. I think that Israel bullies Palestine and fights with US weapons while we thank them for buying them. This is done while Israel manuveres to steal all of Palestines land. This has been discussed here on previous threads. While the UN was voting on the Palestine issue, Israel threatened to develop massive amounts of settlements on land they have been told to stay off of (as a nuetral zone). The US and Israel were very much against Palestine getting the "non-member observer entity" status because it might give Palestine access to international courts. Boo freaking hoo !!!!!!! access to international courts............ that's what the complaint is about ? Really ? How SAD

    I wonder what John Sunnuu would think about this. Rumney was kissing Netanyahu's arse a few months ago while his front man was telling how Rumney was gods gift to the USA! I guess politics makes strange bedfellows!
