US protests “State of Palestine” placard in UN

U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice objected Wednesday to the Palestinians’ latest bid to capitalize on their upgraded U.N. status when their foreign minister spoke at the Security Council while seated behind a nameplate that read “State of Palestine.”

It was the first Palestinian address to the Security Council since the U.N. General Assembly voted overwhelmingly on Nov. 29 to upgrade the Palestinians from U.N. observer to non-voting member state.

Rice said that the United States does not recognize the General Assembly vote in November “as bestowing Palestinian ‘statehood’ or recognition.” …

Since winning recognition as a nonmember U.N. observer state, the Palestinians believe they now qualify for membership in the ICC, although that remains unclear.

In opposing the Palestinian bid for upgraded U.N. status, Israel cited Palestinian threats to turn to the ICC to prosecute Israeli officials for a variety of alleged crimes. Israel does not recognize the court’s jurisdiction and believes its own actions do not violate international law, but officials are concerned legal action could embarrass the country. …

WHY THE HELL DOES THIS WOMAN STILL HAVE A JOB!

She has failed in every possible regard. She has proven herself an incompetent mannequin you can put BS into, and she’ll spit it back up on command.
The Palestinians. I am SICK of these fake people, terrorists, whiners, getting away with their schemes because of the incompetence of our own officials. I could have gotten the votes to keep this ‘so called’ country (which is about as real as Fantasia) OUT of the UN. How hard can it be? We give aid to the entire third world. Just threaten to withdraw it, you moron!
‘Couldn’t even get Antigua & Barbuda. Pathetic! You hear me, Susan? You’re pathetic!

The barista here is playing some annoying free jazz on the ipod shuffle and I’m in the State of Confusion right now. Can’t concentrate for $#!*

It’s like arrhythmic (C)rap with musicians playing guitars with a cheese grater while the vuvuzuela chorus bleets out the horns.

It's just verbal show.

Remember the Morsi weapons, the Libyan fiasco, CAIR, Hama, and radical islamists outside the DNC, expanding muslim/Islamist non assimilation in America, more Obama diversity and money going directly to Gaza and al fatah via our tax dollars, and of course the grand finale of the DNC where that vote clearly showed the majority of dems wanted NO GOD and NO JERUSALEM

Susan Rice is just a waffling mouth piece that should have been fired but she's Obama's squeeze so she say a few things but nothing but evil comes out of the UN, nothing good and nothing pro-America nor pro Israel EVER is positive.

As other have chanted, as do I," GET OUT OF THE UN NOW."

The only way to “get out” is to break the UN in pieces. Which should have been done decades ago.

Agreed. They should send all those nefarious idiots to the Gaza coast or Babylon, Iraq. The place does NO GOOD, nothing.

Please. No threats. Just withdraw it from everyone, including Israel. You need to finance your giant health care turkey anyway, and with all foreign aid removed from future budgets, the dollar might actually remain a viable currency. Marshall is dead and buried. So is the Marshall Plan.
