U.N. Security Council / AP

The United Nations Security Council voted on Tuesday to reject a resolution that would have called for the establishment of a Palestinian state by 2017.

The resolution, which would have called for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria and the establishment of a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, came just one vote short of passing, according to an Israel Hayomreport.

The resolution needed nine votes in favor (out of 15) to pass. It fell one vote short, obtaining eight votes in favor (Russia, China, France, Jordan, Chad, Luxembourg, Argentina and Chile), two against (the United States and Australia), and five abstentions (Britain, Rwanda, Nigeria, Lithuania and South Korea). However, even if the resolution had passed, the U.S. would have vetoed it.

Before the vote, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with the leaders of three of the nations that ended up abstaining, including Rwanda and Nigeria, and asked them to not vote in favor of the Palestinian resolution.

On Wednesday morning, Netanyahu said, “I want to express appreciation and thanks to the U.S. and Australia, and also special appreciation to the president of Rwanda, my friend Paul Kagame, and the president of Nigeria, my friend Goodluck Jonathan. I spoke with both of them. They personally promised me they would not support this resolution. They stood by their word, and that is what decided this battle. This was very important for the State of Israel.”

Israeli officials at the U.N. called the resolution “a preposterous unilateral proposal.”

I'm glad it went this way, but to be honest I was fearful about the US being Muslim Obama is president?

Some GREAT NEWS to start 2015 with!

This is starting off the New Years Right. GREAT NEWS

God is always in charge. God Bless Israel!

Great news!  But they lost the resolution by one vote!  Who are these pompous bastards to tell Israel they would have to give up land so the pali's could move in and destroy it and keep on lobbing missiles at Israel. 

I'm not up on this as I should be.. but why hasn't anyone demanded that Egypt or Jordan give up some of their land for the Palestinians?    

This article was originally written in 1999, but has since been up-dated and current.

The Palestinian cause has been used as a diversionary tactic for a long time, since the 1960s, to call attention away from the Arabs being realistic, responsible, and cleaning up their own crap: abuse of their own people. The Palestinians have been used and abused by their leaders (and leaders from other nations), kept in poverty with little work, and no education - aside from teaching hatred of the Jews as the scapegoat for their problems. The hatred of Jews and Israel isn't the cause of their misery. The Palestinians are the cause of their own misery because they keep rejecting the offer to have their own state and accept Israel's existence. The issue is also about how the Arabs and Muslims  treat Arabs and Muslims. An orchestrated and united anger and hatred is the fuel that keeps the Arabs and Muslims under control and without the ability to see what's really happening and who's truly responsible for it. They have been so brainwashed they are unable to see the truth. Until they can remove the veils from their faces (and I mean both men and women) and see truth there can be no positive change.
  • Israel is the only country in the Middle East that is a democracy, has equal rights for all of its citizens (including women, Jew and Arab, and homosexuals), and the only one that has a free press.

Wow! Actually some good news for Israel? At least they don't have to take on the entire World to keep their country in tact....yet

Finally, a ray of sunshine in this dark world. (No, that was NOT meant to be a racist remark!)

We need to reject the united nations. It is currently made up of our enemies.

ITS ABOUT THE ONLY POSITIVE THING TO COME OUT OF THE U.N. IN YEARS...PALESTINE SHOULD BE BOMBED BACK INTO THE STONEAGE FOR THEIR TERRORISTS ACTIVITIES AND ASSOCIATIONS.

Thank G-d the US did not vote against Israel.

-Genesis 12:3

Thankfully we have people in government who understand the importance of backing Israel.

Why should there be a "Palestinian" state?

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
