United Nations - The Palestinian U.N. observer is predicting that “a historic event” will take place on Thursday when a great majority of countries in the United Nations are expected to approve a resolution recognizing the existence of the state of Palestine.

Riyad Mansour praised France and other key European nations Tuesday for supporting the resolution, which would elevate the Palestinians’ to a nonmember observer state at the U.N.

Mansour said the Palestinians believe the resolution will pave the way for serious peace negotiations with Israel, and he urged all nations that want to see independent states of Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace to approve the resolution.

There are no vetoes in the 193 member General Assembly and the resolution is virtually certain of approval.

A state without borders? Interesting. Also, I'd rather the Palestinians have a "state". This way, when Israel is attacked, Israel can declare a war against another state, instead of battling stateless terrorist groups.

I really think that this is GREAT NEWS for klal yisroal, because moshiach can not come till the medina is gone, & instead it should happen thru a war or worse chas veshulem, it can happen by just putting it back as it was before the zionists made this huge chilul hasem in 1967,

which means it will be called palastine again as it was before, & not medinas yisroel, which is againsed th torah!

And where is the great and mighty Mr. Obama on this UN issue? His lack of a proper Mid-East policy and his failed attempts to make nice with the Muslim world have emboldened the so called Palestians to make this move.

This a genuine farce. If approved, then what? Would this free Israel from providing free electricity, free water, and free telephone service to Gaza or the West Bank Arabs ?? Will the UN provide it ??

Tell me that is the view of a person who cares for the lives of fellow Jews or one so blinded by a mis-guided religious zealotry....Shameful!!

not when so many yidden are here, en masse.
Before 1967 there were infamous massacres by the Arabs, and now we can expect much much worse. We would also need to go back to before 1948 borders.
I can imagine it could bring about a blood bath never yet seen in History.

Well, we gave the beis hamikdosh to the Romans, and we are still making a fuss out of THAT nothing. But the Arabs want to exterminate us all (that was their charter before 1948), and this may enable it. So not everyone is quite ready for that yet.
