Full Court Press to Deny Palestinians Statehood - by Stephen Lendman

Palestinians again will be denied statehood and full de jure UN membership.

Palestinians deserved and were ready for statehood 63 years ago. Washington, Israel, other detractors, and naysayers say not now.

Libya's illegitimate Transitional National Council (TNC) puppet regime got theirs in less than 63 minutes. 

Palestinians overwhelmingly want what imperial America and Israel intend to deny them. In fact, they're applying hardball pressure for it right now.

Palestinians have other ideas.

On September 18, Haaretz writers Ron Ben-Tovim headlined, "Majority of Palestinians believe UN statehood bid will succeed," explaining:

They also think Israel and America will respond harshly. Nonetheless, an independent Palestinian Near East Consulting poll showed 84% of Palestinians support statehood now. Moreover, they think the PA is capable of running it.

On September 13, Haaretz writer Danna Harman headlined, " Poll shows Europeans overwhelmingly in favor of Palestinian statehood," saying:

The "Internet-based movement, Avaaz," requested the poll conducted by YouGov in Britain and Germany, and Ifop in France. They showed 84% of Germans favor statehood, 82% in France, and 71% of Brits.

In addition, large majorities in all three countries want their governments to back and recognize it.

Citizens across Europe and other countries express similar sentiments.

On September 18, the BBC reported poll numbers strongly back statehood.

"The poll of 20,446 citizens conducted by GlobeScan (showed among countries surveyed) 49 percent back (it), while 21 per cent say their government should oppose it." Others are undecided.

Support is strongest in Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, as well as other Muslim countries and China. Even Americans support it by a 45 - 36% margin.

GlobeScan Chairman Doug Miller said:
