    If they bring it up in the general assembly it will pass, although to be a full member it does have to pass though the security counsel. If it passes in the general assembly the Arabs will still use it against Israel.

    it will go to the general assembly. and we know that they will be granted some type of status. but it won't be as a member nation. it will also be an embarrassment to abbas... which i'm ok with.

    the arab world gets to shriek and moan and rail against israel and the u.s. The saudis get to "well, we tried to get the U.S. not to veto"... and mostly the pals get nothing they didn't already have...

    I thought Obama had turned his back on Israel, that is what the republicans have been lying about.

    I hope that wasn't the purpose of this thread my friend? You can ignore the facts all you like, it doesn't change them and the Jews in New York 9 know it. Just because you refuse to see it, and would rather cling to your ideology thats your business If Obama wins he won't need the Jewish and pro-Israel vote anymore

    "The Obama administration says ..."

    The Obama administration has no credibility.
