The Israeli Lobby had its say. AIPAC said "Palestinian UN Upgrade Undermines Peace Efforts."
Israel, of course, bears full responsibility. It spurns peace, stability, and recognition of fundamental Palestinian rights.
Anti-Defamation League (ADL) national director Abe Foxman and national chair Barry Curtiss-Lusher jointly said:
"With this resolution, the General Assembly has handed the Palestinian leadership a pyrrhic public relations victory, which in all likelihood will make it even more difficult to move the process forward."
"The result of the vote is no surprise. The General Assembly has always given a rubber stamp to Palestinian declarations and grandstanding."
"In the long term, this resolution will have potentially disastrous consequences for future Palestinian aspirations."
"It brings the Palestinian people no closer to statehood, nor does it bring Israel closer to peace and security."- Advertisement -
Congressional, Knesset and Israeli Lobby hardliners prioritize war on humanity, violent confrontations, racist hate, misinformation, bald-faced lies, and support for Israel's worst crimes.
