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.
Better report them to #AttackWatch...
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.
Obama should be such a patriot.....alas....no comparison.
Nah, he just wants to destroy her.
To anyone who wants to missed it live here are the full speeches in video. Abbas’s speech you might think you should read instead but no you should listen to the reaction he gets from the hall at the UN. Netanyahu’s speech will be quoted for decades and contains many powerful moments including my favorite bit about a millennium old ring bearing the name of a Jewish official named Netanyahu.
Copying and circulation is encouraged, noting that the original (Grant Hamilton's "Spanish Brute") is in the public domain due to age. The original was in fact probably unfair to Spain, which was never proven to have blown up the U.S.S. "Maine." It is therefore fitting that the same excellent image be put back into service in a (psychological) war against genuine enemies of Civilization.
He's aging well.
So what happens next? Will there be a vote or just some vague promise of “getting together to negotiate”?
Interesting times we live in, that’s for sure!
They want freedom? Let them earn it by negotiating with Israel ( they must recognize Israel as a Jewish State) ot let them fight for their freedom. Obama trained the West Bank invasion ( so called police) force by sending US Army advisors .....The Sinai is full of jihadis, and Hamas is ready on the North and Syria is ready to the East.Let them come.
I doubt the Palestinians have what it takes....which is why they are whining to the United Nations.Obama thinks they have what it takes,,,,,which is why he has been playing both sides of the fence ( to get elected by NOT losing the Jewish vote at home) but in truth Obama has helped engineer the unrest which is pointed at the heart of Israel, from all points of the compass.
Obama is following the fascist pattern from his Alinsky play book.He fools no one who reads history.
