Watch the live stream at the UN.
When he told the general assembly and held up a copy of the formal application for statehood (based on 1967 borders) he got a standing ovation. Must be feeling pretty lonely in Israel right now. Netanyahu is going to speak soon so keep your eyes on the livestream.
Obama got dissed after his ‘warning’, and his ‘love and peace for all mankind’ UN speech.
Let’s see how he responds, this time around is not like his Copehengen trip in failed Chicago Olympics bid by simply flying home.
This is a ‘slap in your face’ chagllenge, there is no chance Obama can find a way to ‘save face’ for himself (notice I didn’t say USA) or all the parties involved.
My bet is that we won’t come to this sad state with a President Hillary (spit).
“Admit us because we fulfill the criteria of a lawful civil society.. or we’ll kill you.”
This is absurd. The PA admitted yesterday it can't support itself. Abbas's writ does not run in Gaza, which does not support his bid. Will the corrupt thugs and fools who comprise the UN declare Gaza to be part of Abbas's "state" even if they don't want to be? Today we find out the so-called Palestinian "refugees" will not be citizens of this so-called state, even the ones living in "Palestine." This is a fantasy game played for political gain with no relation to reality. It's like declaring the sun rises in the west and everyone pretending it does.
I guess Abbas and the PA have taken the measure of the boy-president Obama, and decided there wouldn't be any consequences.
They want Jerusalem as their capital.......this must never be allowed.
The Palestinians are like filthy wild animals.....they don’t deserve a state.
Those were the borders between Israel and Jordan!
Jordan gave up the land, and they never even dreamed of making a Palestine nation out of it.
How on Earth can these creeps just declare a nation out of something that never existed is beyond me.
time to break out the popcorn . . . could get interesting
18:06 (13:06) During his speech Abbas said he was calling for a return to the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Better report them to #AttackWatch...
Abbas got a standing ovation from the UN Membeship while Palistinians celebrate in the streets....and that is telling as to the weakness of the US on the International Stage....no longered respsected let alone feared the world marches forward under ‘a different drummer’ now......
Netenyahue up in few minutes ...let’s hear his reaction to this...aljazerra let’s us see the ME response and good to know how they are reacting.
18:16 (13:16) Not everyone was cheering for Abbas at the UN. AFP was watching US ambassadord Susan Rice:
Rice led the US delegation listening to Abbas’ speech in the General Assembly hall. While the Palestinian leader was given wild acclaim at the end of his speech, Rice and two other US diplomats sat in silence and did not applaud. The Israeli delegation, led by deputy UN ambassador Haim Waxman, also remained stoically immobile during the raucous applause.
Same as Obama.
zer0âs arab spring may (now fall in the northern hemisphere) inflame the entire region. zer0âs election was America’s arab fall. Best guess ... Israel would be wise to call up all reserves, and go full alert. This situation should never have been allowed, where the palestinians have been allowed to burn the negotiating table (imho). Now the palestinians will never recognize Israel nor will any other arab nation once this vote takes place (imho). Still not certain zer0 will not change his mind at the last minute and say vote for the palestinian state. This is what my belief is of the corruption of the zer0.
Heads’s up....Bee Bee’s speaking now at UN after Abbass speech
Be-Be just revealed to the International Community Hamas is heading the Security Council...a known terrorist group...adding “you can’t make this up!”
“Peace must rest in security”...Netenyahu
