The UN Vote


Watching live the UN vote/debate:  For -138   Against -9     Abstentions-41. Place erupts in thunderous applause. G-d help us all.

US speaking to result....reiterates goal of negotiated peace so we oppose this "unfortunate and unproductive," resolution. "Today's grand pronouncement will soon fade and Palestinians will wake up tomorrow to see that little has changed." "We will oppose all unilateral actions. We will stand up against anything/anyone that seeks to delegitimize Israel  or affect her security." This is NOT a declaration of a State.

My take: only 9 world States do not want a terrorist, genocidal, intifada State next to Israel. G-d bless Israel because other than that you are in almost 100% hostile territory.
 One senior official said that the recent fighting in Gaza tipped the European scales, with the Europeans worrying that if PA Authority President Mahmoud Abbas would not gain some kind of diplomatic victory, he would loses all stature and authority.
"Had the vote taken place before the Gaza operation, the EU would have voted differently," one official said.
Yeah, right. Maybe some 4 or 5 would have voted no. Big deal. Here's who voted NO: The United States, Israel, Panama, Palau, Canada, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Czech Republic and Micronesia. What hurts is how few of her so called "friends," did so.

BTW hope you like the pic I added. Rumour has it that the t-shirt was donated to Abbas by a million dKos posters for good luck.

{And it was personally signed by Heathlander. - Editor's note.}

    1. It was, at least the part I saw. I came on late.

    2. Theater so takes the place of and obscures reality.

      Abbas, the peace maker, spewed venom and received a standing ovation.

    3. Which means that most of the world ACCEPTS that venom as truth. Sad day.

  2. Does this mean that those Palestinians who are not citizens of Israel are now responsible for themselves?

    That would be absolutely terrific.

    1. Now that Palestine is a state, wherever it may be located exactly, we can de-fund and dissolve UNRWA.

      I have to say, there is a part of me that considers this good news.

      I do not know where the new country of "Palestine" is located exactly, but I wish their people well as they build the economic and material and political infrastructure necessary for an actual state, rather than a terrorist organization hell-bent on the slaughter of the Jews.

      I wish them well and nothing but the very best in this world.

      They should write us now and again to let us know how they're getting on.


  3. By the way, here is one crucial difference between what happened today and what happened 69 years ago on this day.

    On November 29, 1947, the UN recognized Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

    The UN did not create Israel, it simply recognized conditions as they were. The Jewish people had labored for around 60 years, if not more, in the re-creation of the state of Israel.

    They built the necessary infrastructure, material and economic and political, for a state.

    They drained the swamps and hammered the nails.

    The Palestinian-Arabs are now recognized as a "state" by the United Nations but they have studiously refused to build any such similar infrastructure within the land that they control.

    The UN may recognize them, but they have yet to really acknowledge themselves.

    I wish that they would do so.

    Maybe some decades after they do so they will finally decide to stop harassing and murdering their Jewish neighbors.

    {But I wouldn't count on that, really.}

  4. Israel needs to leave the UN and dissolve the Oslo Accords.

    The Palestinian Arabs have made it clear they do not want peace with Israel.

    Its time to end the Oslo farce and end the illusion the UN will ever be on Israel's side.

    1. The Heathlander is one bad hair day from becoming a suicide bomber.


    2. Like his mom and aunt always said.....they blow up too fast.

  6. And while we're on the subject of Jew hating terrorist loving jerks, Kossacks are in the land of Joy with this news. What a surprise!

    1. I can hear David "Useful Idiot" Harris-Gershon's tears, cheers and choked-up sobs of joy, in between cries of "followmeontwitter!," from all the way on the other end of the Commonwealth.

      And my ears don't work for shit.




      I haven't bothered to look at that shitpile tonight. Should I? Is there at least some comic value to it?

    2. Well, I didn't have to look hard to find one of their diaries. Heh.

      Comment of the day, based upon a brief glance at a few dozen.

      Yeah, the US sucks. Everybody else rocks. Lol. Some of those 138 literally rock, of course. As in, stoning. That rocks, dude.

  7. I hope that states besides Israel will begin to press the Palestinians to affirm and support international instruments and treaties they regularly violate, as part of their responsibility to the international community.

  8. I was sickened by the first lines of Abbas' speech and never bothered reading further.

    **Palestine comes today to the United Nations General Assembly at a time when it is still tending to its wounds and still burying its beloved martyrs of children, women and men who have fallen victim to the latest Israeli aggression, still searching for remnants of life amid the ruins of homes destroyed by Israeli bombs on the Gaza Strip, wiping out entire families, their men, women and children murdered along with their dreams, their hopes, their future and their longing to live an ordinary life and to live in freedom and peace.
    Palestine comes today to the General Assembly because it believes in peace and because its people, as proven in past days, are in desperate need of it.**

    There are some huge issues here. Not the least being that the administrators of fictitious State of Palestine hope to change the status of land under Israeli administration since 1967 to "occupied territory" and they hope to change the status of Palestinian terrorists who have targeted civilians into legitimate fighters and prisoners of war

    1. Shirl, of course you are sickened.

      You damn well should be sickened.

      By referring to Israeli self-defense as a form of aggression, Abbas is essentially claiming that it's open season.

      And, ya know what?

      The extent to which the rest of the world agrees is the extent to which Abbas is absolutely right.

      It is open season. Not on Australian Jews and not on American Jews, but definitely on Israeli Jews.

      The world thinks that they have a moral obligation to lie down and die.

  9. To paraphrase Abba Eban “If Algeria introduced a General Assembly resolution that the world is flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would find overwhelming support in the Arab and Progressive world”
