There are only THREE other entities that are NOT members of the United Nations.

Can you name them??

Kosovo, Taiwan and Vatican City.

What's the big deal if Palestine (or WestBank/Gazians, whatever you want to call them) want to seek recognition with the UN??

Oh, here's the reason ..<from the article> "A Palestinian U.N. bid in September could hurt Obama’s re-election efforts."

so stupid. Why don't they just sit down with Israel and negotiate. That's what negotiations are supposed to determine. What changes, what compromises, what facts are to be agreed upon.

I asked my delivery nurse ... the saaame question..

Mahmoud Abbas, da'elected Prezident of the Palestinians, has a pre-condition for entering negotiations with the filthy land robbers international savage criminal zionists ...

....Mahmoud first wants to know ... what the results of the negotiations are going be,...... before he begins to negotiate ...

We put an add on all of our consumer's websites on the following spirit ..

"WANTED.
THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS LOOKING FOR A SMART CIRCUMCIZED CANDIDATE FOR THE OFFICE OF PRIME MINISTER.
ONLY CANDIDATES WITH TWO CRYSTAL BALLS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR THE A.M. POSITION"

OMG!!! LEARN YOUR FLIPPIN' HISTORY!!!! Palestinian leaders have rejected or sabotaged every proposal for statehood since 1947. In 1947 the Palestinians rejected the UN-sponsored division of the former British mandate into Jewish and Arab states on the grounds that they did not want to share Palestine with the infidel Jews. Instead of developing their own state, they tried through armed conflict to eradicate the nascent Jewish state. Their leaders took this big step just two years after the end of the Holocaust; and, guided by Hitler's associate Haj Amin Al-Husseini, their implicit goal was to continue the slaughter. But if you start a war of politicide plus extermination you had better win it; otherwise, like Hitler, or Tojo, or the Palestinians of 1948, you will very likely end up with a bombed-out wasteland, or -- in the Palestinian case -- as a defeated rabble of landless refugees.

The Palestinian leaders did not draw the obvious conclusions from what they call their "Naqba," their catastrophe. Instead, the next time a state was practically handed to them, they again turned it down, in favor of war with the Jews. Thus, when Clinton and Barak, reviving the stalled Oslo Accords of 1994, made Arafat an offer he couldn't refuse -- 95% of the West Bank, control of the Temple Mount, border adjustments, etc.-- he refused it, while giving an ultimatum that only a thoroughly defeated Israel could accept: the resettlement of some five million "refugees" within the boundaries of the Jewish State. No diplomatic pause to negotiate this new demarche: just "take it or leave it," and Arafat flounced out, to fire up the second, soon to be crushed, Intifada.

Why don't the Palestinians learn their lesson? Why won't they accept the grant of statehood? To repeat, perhaps because they don't really want their own country? A perfect example are these statements:

"Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all out war, a war which will last for generations.
~Yasser Arafat~
~~~~~~~~~~
"The Palestinian people have no national identity. I, Yasser Arafat, man of destiny, will give them that identity through conflict with Israel."
~ Yasser Arafat ~
~~~~~~~~~~
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel. For our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of Palestinian people, since Arab national interest demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism".
