I dont get why we care? so what if they say they are a state. Maybe then they would act like one.
If they don’t “act” like one now, there’s no reason for them to “act’ like one if they get statehood. All out war and bloodshed with an ally is the reason most people care.
There is no such county as “Palestine”, there never was.
Comment: The Palestinians’ illegitimate UN gambit
I wish they would and the next day all that decide to live within the borders of "their" state can experience the power and excellence of the IAF before those Palestinian terrorists orgy with their 72 virgins.
Because as far as they are concerned, their “state” encompasses all of Israel, from the Jordan to the sea, and they will, at once, go to war with those interloper Jews.
For the same reason the U.S. cannot tolerate secession by a state.
Terrorists don't care if they have a state or not, they will still insist on killing because it is what they "live" for.
The Palestinians who are good people live within the borders of Israel with content.
Could someone please explain to me, if a group of people has the ability and function to declare themselves a state, why they should care what that collection of zoo exhibits on the East River in Manhattan declares or doesn’t declare.
PLO and Hammas are Terrorists. State run terrorism is the outcome of recognition.
No one sane wants that for Israel!
because the world will recognize most of Israel as Palestinian land?
If they were a State maybe they wouldn’t pretend “Pls” is a word.
They might even learn when to capitalize.
Maybe you should try to be a State. Or at least semi-literate.
Because ALL the leaders of the Palestinians have as their #1 priority the destruction of Israel.
All they have to do is pledge to live at peace with their neighbors and they can become a state.
Among some of the good reasons posted above - there are agreements in place on how and when a “Pali State” can be recognized and - this ain’t it
“There is no such county as Palestine, there never was.”
Once there was a Poland. Then, for about 130 years, there was no Poland. Then it disappeared for 5 years. Then it came back.
countries come and go. I don’t like the Palestinians, and I think their leaders are ghouls, but they have as much right to declare themselves a nation as anybody else.
Our ancestors settled in America, fought the Indians, manhy died because of the diseases we brought, and we created a nation that never previously existed.
I read something earlier this year here...about how “Palestine” got its name....had to do with a PALEOntology study going on in that area.....nothing more....I’ll go see if I bookmarked it.
“Because every time Israel would retaliate for a rocket attack or some other terrorist act originating in the Palestinian State, the Palestinian state could claim invasion!”
Actually, the first time the “Palestinian state” fires a rocket or mortar shell, it would be an act of war and Israel could hold “Palestine” collectively responsible as a state. When you’re held collectively responsible, it means retaliation can be directed against ANY military-related asset, including industries, infrastructures, and port facilities in your “country.”
