Thread: Palestinian statehood bid .

  1. Default Palestinian Statehood bid ( Part 2 )

    This is a continuation of the thread at;
    http://www.politicalforum.com/latest...nation-47.html

    The warnings sounded in that thread are taken seriously by pro-Palestinian groups, even ex-pat Palestinians themselves;

    How Palestinian Authority’s UN "statehood" bid endangers Palestinian rights
    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.

    Thats a good example for a complication, they can be rational or irational about this, personally i hope it will turn out for the best but it wont if they declare Hifae etc' as destinations, i really hope they'll make good use of the new state should they get it.

    The Israeli press features it every single day. For example;

    Israel warned against sending Peres to UN vote on Palestinian state

    Pro-Israeli diplomats in New York say sending the elder statesman will give more weight to the Palestinians' unilateral move.

    Not in your street, perhaps. It will be the main topic of conversation in every street and cafe with an arab in it.

    Report: U.S. trying to stall Palestinian statehood bid at UN

    Washington introduces plan to renew peace talks with Israel and convince Palestinian Authority to give up UN bid for statehood, according to New York Times report.

    Washington wants to continue the slow ethnic cleansing of Palestine , contrary to its own , publicly-stated, policy. That's Hypocrisy as Policy and the world is aware of it. The world is also rapidly coming to the opinion that American foreign policy is devised and conducted by American fools at the behest of Zionist brutes.

    Did the Zionists get permission from anybody before they declared the State of Israel and Independence, out of interest?

    If not, why do they have such a problem with the Palestinians emulating them?
    NEWSNET SCOTLAND..doesn't adhere to the Unionist view
    YOUR SCOTLAND. YOUR REFERENDUM
    Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right. Martin Luther King Jr.

    No, they went right ahead and declared their State , including territory which wasn't designated as ' Israel ' under UNGAR 181 from which they had ethnically cleansed the larger part of the indigenous inhabitants. For this they were called ' brave ' and ' plucky little Israel ' for sixty years.
