This is a continuation of the thread at; http://www.politicalforum.com/lates...lestine-worlds-next-recognized-nation-47.html The warnings sounded in that thread are taken seriously by pro-Palestinian groups, even ex-pat Palestinians themselves; Certainly, it's all down to the wording of the forthcoming Resolution but we might get an insight into the effectiveness of the bid by studying the reactions of the opposition. There is panic in the Knesset and dismay in Washington- which has resorted to open threats; Nevertheless, the bid must proceed with caution and all advice heeded. Its major flaw is that it is proceeding without benefit of a referendum-generated mandate from the entire Palestinian nation. This isn't about putting a few Fatah members on chairs at the UN. It's about the rights of the Palestinian refugees to go home safely.
