The repercussions of a UN recognition of Palestine
Israpundit ^ | April 10, 2011 | Ted Belman

The PA has been hard at work of late lining up votes in the UNGA for the recognition of the state of Palestine with pre ’67 borders with the eastern part of Jerusalem as its capital.

They intend to use the “Uniting for Peace” procedure to avoid a possible UNSC veto regardless of whether the procedure is legal. (See; The UN Charter Cannot Support GA Resolution 377). Were they to get such recognition the repercussions would be significant.

Alan Baker, who was legal counsel for Israel in the drafting of the Oslo Accords and is currently associated with the Jerusalem Center of Public Affairs, recently published The Palestinian UN Gamble – Irresponsible and Ill-Advised. He summarized his article as follows

    “While such a resolution would not have the authority to alter the legal status of the territories, the negative consequences of such a course of action would nevertheless serve to void the very basis of the peace process. It would undermine the legal existence of the Palestinian Authority and violate commitments by Yasser Arafat to settle all issues by negotiation.

    “Such unilateral action outside the negotiation process would constitute a fundamental breach of the 1995 Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, thereby releasing Israel from its reciprocal commitments.”

This would go so far as to release Israel from the confines of UNSC Res 242. How so?

According to the Palestine Mandate passed in 1922, Great Britain, the Mandatory power, had the following obligation with respect to all of that part of Palestine lying west of the Jordan River.

Interesting, the UN may become a true democracy, said the wolf.

I noticed somewhere today (maybe Drudge?) that Hamas was going to petition the UN to declare Gaza as a "No Fly Zone."

Pretty sweet if you can get away with it (and I would not bet against the UN going along with this sham) First, you shell/rocket your sworn enemy and when they "defend themselves" you (a) warn them that if they persist (in defending themselves from "your" attack) you will ramp it up and (b) go to the UN for protection.

Many warned that with the "Libyan Project" (fashioned and advanced by the Anti-Jewish/Israel Loon and architect Samantha Power) that this would lead to a similar type plan for Israel and could actually lead us to take Military action against our ally, not that Dear Leader, who is a Pali/Moozie supporter and good "bud" would object, but either way, if this should come to pass or the UN declares that the so called Palestinians should have their own country, this will either lead to the destruction of Israel or perhaps, WWIII.
