China paper warns US against Palestinian UN veto

A Chinese state-run newspaper on Friday warned of a spike in tensions in the Middle East if the United States vetoed the Palestinian bid for membership of the United Nations next week.

As peace talks with Israel stall, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas is expected to formally submit a request for UN membership next Friday, despite strong objections from Washington that the move would be "counter-productive."

"If the US chooses to fly in the face of world opinion and block the Palestine UN bid next week, not only will Israel become more isolated but tensions in the region will be heightened even more," said the China Daily.

"The majority of the international community deems an independent state as the inalienable right of the Palestinians," the English-language daily said in an editorial, echoing Beijing's official position on the issue.

I do believe the Palis will get membership status next week. Tuesday is it? And yes one of these days a state. The players all say peace and security which is interesting since the Apostle Paul said one day they will say peace and safety.

Let's see - we have a jew-hating, terror-loving coward in the WH and we owe China our firstborn sons for the next 2-3 generations.

No wonder they have the "audacity" to warn us. Of course, they did give Obama an out - they said a no vote would "further isolate Israel" whcich would seem to be a fair trade of for the evil piece of trash stinking up the People's House.

The Saudis are warning against a veto as well.

Wonder if the Chi-Coms and Saudis know that they are bringing a curse upon their own heads. Genesis 12:3
