Huh? I was noting Ahmad's Hookah. I read that smoking with that device is twice as bad as cigarettes. If he didn't have one, I'd buy him one. 8>)

Actually it's not. Depending on what kind of tobacco you smoke, it's more nicotine and a lot less tar. It tastes great too.

so the whole world voted against the criminal israeli occupation !!! hope the palestinians succeed with their cases at the international court, the israelis are scared. the israeli at the UN said that this vote gives israelis the right to not care about the palestinians anymore, that they from now on will just act according to their self-interest. what shamelessness. how many more homes do they have to finally act in their self-interest?

It seems to me that you said almost exactly that when it came out. Are you sure you don't remember an exchange where I said something about being less biased when your relatives stop trying to kill my relatives? Hmm, maybe it was NaNa but I never hid it.

Maybe it just came as a surprise considering how unbiased I actually am. I do wish for peace and a nation of their own for your people, I just refuse to let it happen at the expense of my people. That's why I wish you'd accept another route...sixty-four years traveling the same wrong road should have taught Palestinians by now that you can't get there from here.

Pssst.

The ICC runs in both directions and Hamas have already been certified as war criminals by Goldstone. Can you say counter-suit?

well in that case the US and israel did not need to be so against this vote, did they. instead the ridiculously biased US did all it could to keep the palestinians from going to the UN.
but good for them, they did and israel can see how beloved it is by the world. even germany abstained.

This was not a vote againts Israel but for the Pals. There is a big difference. The last word was not said yet, anyway most Israelis are not againts it and maybe but only maybe this will force the savages to behave like human beings, its a big maybe. They might be real sorry for what they asked for, it will come later, its not as easy as it seems. This changes nothing in real terms on the ground, nothing.

Didn't need to be so against this vote? How "AGAINST" would have been acceptable?

The US and Israel have always (that's ALWAYS in all caps for emphasis) maintained that the route to Palestinian statehood is through direct negotiation between the parties. Every time they try an end around they demonstrate that it would be unacceptable to them to earn a state peacefully. They (the part of the Arabs wishing they were known as Palestinians) insist on resistance and it will only lead to disappointment. The longer they draw this out, the more of them are bound to die.

yes, of course, the US and its boss israel have forever been for the farce of direct negotiations. this farce has been very very good for israel. gave them lots of time to steal more land.
what does that have to do with wanting to avoid a trip to the ICC that this vote at the UN may provide for them?
anyway bon voyage to the criminal court.

Y'know what suzu? This is why I can't talk to you, you throw down the most rancid deceitful crap in the hopes that afterward you only have to repeat it a couple hundred more times until it's true on the internet.

Bullshit!

Abbas needed to hit a home run or he was through in Palestinian politics. He has pushed this through the UN at his own expense in order to come out ahead of Hamas's suicide "victory". He calculated the risk and understood the cost...then did it anyway.

Tick tock suzu. Resistance also works in both directions and I'm looking into a couple of those 3000 new E. Jerusalem houses as investment properties. You should get down on some while you can.

I'd like to see those 3000 units get inhabited when land grabbing settlers start getting blown to bits by Palestinian resistance.

"negotiating for peace" while simultaneously committing acts of aggression against the other party.

Crazy does not begin to describe the Arab approach to this situation. Until there is a Palestine it is Israel and Israelis have moved on.

You may think that there is some magic do-over that winds the clock back to 1948...so Arabs can mystically un-fuck their reaction and claim their side of the mandate but that ain't happening. The road to Palestinian statehood runs through Israel, not the UN.
