More good news. I agree with this decision, although an outright NO would have been even better.

Tonight on the crappiest news ever delivered (Channel 10) they interviewed a Palestinian guy. No representation of Israel at all.

Balanced?

I think not.

Biased toward islamic creep?

I think so.

The UN is a joke these days. To even hold a vote while Hamas, a terrorist organization, is in power. Democratically elected or not.
yeah right

True. There was also an exhumation of Arafat's body recently to see if he was poisoned. The results are due soon I believe.

There was a long investigation by al-jazeera, but I don't believe anything these people say; obviously the claim is that Israel poisoned him.

INTERESTING TIMING? OR WHAT?

Arafat murdered innocent civilian during hijackings and suicide bombings. Whatever he got, he deserved. Now his stench must be beared again by digging up the trash.

Yeah, timing is incredible.

Apparently they couldn't get his whole body up - had to settle for bits and pieces. I'd like a bit more info on who's paying the medical examiners.

Why sure up your position to sit on the UN council and then not have the guts to vote yah or nay! If Gillard believes Palestine has the right to self determination....then her answer is a clear one....it is ridiculous to state what you believe, and then fail to vote and clearly reffect that.

Gillard is too scared of the United States.
Australia does not have an independent foreign policy.

Lies?

I did it all the time and not because a hung parliament forced me to change my position either.

There is a website somewhere that lists over 30 of my lies!

The fact is Labor dont want to upset the Muzztards in Australia so decide to sit on the fence. They realise the Muzzie vote is important for Labor and will do anthything to secure there votes.

I wont be surprised if they announce some pro Muzzie policies early next year to guarantee the 500,000 plus loony welfare dependant Muzztards vote for them.

Hamas, CIA and Mossad are all terrorists.

Many states in Africa, South America and Asia simply do extrajudicial killing and save on paperwork.

I think you are on a par...you are the first PM that ousted a leader without warning in his first term and then claimed(lied) that you knew nothing about it!

And you are a coward for not having the guts to apply an assylum policy that might offend the UN.
