    US: Resolution did not create Palestinian state - Israel News, Ynetnews

    The US position continues to be that there is no Palestinian state.

    no, it doesn't. but look on the bright side...it does open venues that were heretofore inaccessible to them, particularly legal venues like the international criminal court.

    None of this will improve conditions for the Palestinian Arab people living in the disputed territories. The ICC will have no jurisdiction with respect to issues between Israel and the Arabs living in the disputed territories.

    This was the biggest non-event event. All that it did was it revived Mahmoud Abbas and his party as legitimate players in the Palestinian equation. It was anything but about statehood or the people.

    Congratulations to the Pals defeating the Israelis, Americans and Canadians at the UN in a crushing and historic 138 to 9 vote.

    The UN does not create states. What they did was to recognize a state that already existed.

    Now how long has this state existed?

    I'm ashamed at the US' position over this.

    Well said: The Palestinian State is occupied and life may indeed get worse for the cheering Palestinian People...But one thing has changed, is the Palestian State of mind, because the vast majority of people on planet Earth support their cause against all odds of the Israeli Jackboot...

    A State of Mind like many of the world's ideas have always been more powerful than any army.
