The Birth of a Nation

Palestine's bid for statehood.

This article is available in:

This week Palestinians are moving beyond the Israel- and US-dominated peace process and appealing directly to the world. They are asking the United Nations to formally recognize Palestine as an independent, sovereign state within its 1967 borders.

There is a profound symbolic significance to this move.

It was with a vote in the General Assembly in November 1947 that the state of Israel first achieved recognition through a resolution calling for mutually occupied land to be divided into two states. Israel and most of the nations of the world have long viewed that vote as the source of Israel’s legitimacy as a nation.

If the United Nations General Assembly created the state of Israel sixty years ago, it can create a Palestinian state now.

A bold stroke of poetic justice like that could breathe new life into the whole region and beyond.

They said that even if it does happen, the refugees will not be granted citizenship and that US will have to keep giving them money, everything will work normally. The refugees will still be stateless refugees, without any benefit from Abbas state.

Finally. The fraudulent colony of "israel" can be sued in the International Criminal Court and "israelis" can now feel the poetic justice of not being able to travel for fear of arrest.
Any support for the concept of apartheid that is "zionism and "israel" is naturally support of racism, theft, white supremacy and Judeo-Supremacy and obviously cannot be tolerated any longer.
The Zionist Scum are finally dying by the seeds they sowed. Anyone with even a shred of intellectual credibility has abandoned not only "israel" but the preposterous concept of zionsim long ago. Defections from the rouge state are at an all time high and in the U.S and Canada, the two most virulent anti-Semitic/pro-"israeli" countries, more and more former Jews are eschewing the label of Judaism and deconstructing the cancerous victim-narrative that older Jews have attempted to foist on their young for a generation. On college campuses all across North America the Zionist Brown Shirts are being exposed for what they are and being a Jew who in any way supports the made up colony of "israel" is a liability where social acceptance is paramount. Attempts by "israeli" propaganda firms to combat this have only backfired and further eroded the plastic facade of Zionism and it's Jewish militant/terrorists.
The Apartheid fantasy-land called "israel" is spiraling into a vortex of self destruction.
Thank god!
Nah-nah-nah, hey, hey, goodbye!

Hate to break it to you, but Israel can already be put before the ICC on behalf of Palestine by other countries. If this succeeds, the only thing that will change is that Palestine will be under the jurisdiction of the ICC.

"more and more former Jews are eschewing the label of Judaism "

What's positive about that?

You mean aside from the obvious?
Guess I assume like most Adbusters reader that you are post-religious too. But apparently there are still some of you out there who cling to ancient fairytale cosmologies from the bible and yet think they have any place in a rational debate based on fact and logic. Sad really..
