    I can hear the howl from the ever-so-just UN.

    It could be very interesting. As pointed out in a JPost article, Israel hasn't ever 'gone back,' but 'it's never too late.

    Israel takes issue of Jewis... JPost - Jewish World - Jewish News

    I'd guess that Israel has mostly been of a mindset that their people have seen improving lives since the beginning, whilst others have leaders that have chosen a different outcome.

    Now with possible annihilation looming, supposedly because of Israel's 'unfairness' in refusing to allow terrorists in their midst, the time has come for real fairness.

    Has Israel ever listened to the UN? UN should do the same

    Because they are a member, they have same rights as all members. Why Israel hasn't kowtowed? Because the Islamic states refuse to hold Palestinians to regular negotiations. The bloc vote for condemnations, without any reasonableness for making a two state solution that can work.

    When Israel actually listens to the UN then they can make a case. Netanyhau offered no land concessions nor an end to settlements. And no Palestinian soveirgnty to control their borders to run their own economy. And he didn't even guarantee what little land concessions he would make. So it's the same exact thing, which is exactly what Israel wants for the Palestinians not to get anything. That's not a two state solution

    57 of the UN's 192 member states are also members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. Add to that the 3rd World nations who must throw Israel under the bus to protect their oil supply and you have a UN that is incapable of producing justice.
    It is disingenuous to claim that Israel can get a fair shake at the UN but I can see how one such as you would.

    Why can't the UN probe the settlements? Why won't Israel allow them into the occupied territories?

    SAYIT if Israel is for a two state solution. Why not allow the UN to look into the settlements. Those settlements are detrimental to any peace plan
