UN Vote on Palestine


Vote had nothing to do with statehood. Palestine has been a state for over 24 years.

Haaretz said Israel suffered a humiliating defeat in New York. So did truth about what actually happened, what it means, and what's likely going forward. More on that below.

Thursday's vote expressed overwhelming support. UN Member States number 193. Five didn't vote. Of those that did, 138 said yes, nine voted no, and 41 abstained.

Countries voting no included America, Israel, Canada, the Czech Republic, Panama, and four small Pacific island states: Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau. They're in lockstep with all US/Israeli policies. They spurn Palestinian rights.

Countries abstaining included Britain (after expressing support) Germany, Australia, Colombia, South Korea, Haiti (under US-installed puppet Michel Martelly), Singapore, Rwanda (under US puppet Paul Kagame), the Netherlands, Paraguay (under coup d' etat puppet Federico Franco), Poland, Hungry, and 29 others.

Netanyahu was typically arrogant. Palestine "must be prepared to end the conflict with Israel once and for all".No decision by the UN (changes) the rights of the Jewish people in this land."
