    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Palestinian president has ordered his government to officially change the name of the Palestinian Authority to "State of Palestine."
    Palestinians change their name following UN bid - Yahoo! News
    The move follows the November decision by the United Nations to upgrade the Palestinians' status to that of a "non-member observer state."

    President Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday that all official Palestinian stamps, stationery and documents will now bear the new name.

    A statement from his office said the move was aimed at enhancing Palestinian "sovereignty on the ground" and was a step on the way to "real independence." Israel still controls most of the West Bank.

    Israel objected to the Palestinian statehood bid at the U.N., calling it a unilateral step aimed at bypassing direct peace negotiations. Abbas denied that.

    Israel had no comment Sunday.

    There is no sovereign state of Palestine. There never has been and there never will be. So call it whatever you want. By any name it still does not exist. - Jeremiah

    To share with you. But I will share the truth with you.

    There never has been and there never will be a sovereign State of Palestine. Not now and not ever.

    I like the "pali" approach------WHAT A DIFFERENCE A NAME MAKES
    I am going to change my name to RITA HAYWORTH------then I will be able
    to sing and dance and I will be an IRRESISTABLE SEX POT
    or maybe I will try ELIZABETH TAYLOR----I thought her not only beautiful --
    but an excellent and intelligent actress----I WANNA BE LIZ ......

    can we put that to a vote?

    I like it! He should further articulate; " State of Palestine" without return to the 67 Borders that the Arabs thermselves have never accepted and without " Right of Return" :D

    Do you want to give someone third degree burns? Rita and Liz didn't have such a great ending anyhow. Your life is a far better story, Rosie. You are far more interesting and intriguing than either of them. A smart woman is the ultimate sexy and you've got it going on. Liz has nothing on you.
