    After upgrading status, UN officially switches from ‘Palestine’ to ‘State of Palestine’
    The body now refers to Mahmoud Abbas as ‘head of state’

    I like it. The " State of Palestine" without Israel going back to the Borders that the Arabs themselves have never acknowledged or found acceptable. :D

    They can call themselves a kangaroo, but it still won't get them into the zoo for free.

    Nor will calling them a state make them one.

    They aren't a state and never will be- not here.

    Uh Oh, "State of Palestine." How will the Palestinians survive if that means self determination without having Israel to provide for them any longer?

    They were doing fine before 1967? ( After all, that is what we keep hearing about). I forgot... There wasn't a " Palestinian State" there. I wonder if Egypt and Jordan knew that?? :D
