1. South Sudan?
Rachel ,   US   (08.06.11)
I don't believe it.
2. Call me suspicious..
briton ,   bourke   (08.06.11)
But look what has happened to Americas economy since Obama demanded Israel be divided. And Norway after they declared they would vote for the Pals, New Zealand after they declared Pal support............
3. I recognize Nasrallah as being the Hezz BIG kahuna
Devorah   (08.06.11)
But that doesn't mean I am going to give him money or embrace him. Well, I couldn't embrace him even if I wanted to since he obviously lives on a diet of deep-fried Twinkies and cheese fries.
4. Meaningless.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (08.06.11)
Only one vote really counts: ISRAEL'S. Without our cooperation, you have nothing. Add in the US veto in the Security Council, you have no independant state. And, the EU is very divided on the issue, most will vote no. What you will have are consequences, mostly financial. And if the Israeli leadership has any balls (on this point, you might luck out) we will nullify the Oslo Accords & annex Area C & stop all cash transfers. You will be us sh*t's creek without a paddle. In the very near future, you will lose the financial support of the US & the EU. Don't count on the Arabs either, they won't give you squat. While I'm sure you'll try to distract your public from this fiasco by inciting against Israel, you can't even be sure this will work - they might turn against YOU. Is Abbas any different than Mubarak or Assad? You're all a bunch of crooks & embezzlers & your people know it.
5. LOL!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.06.11)
Israel's not trying to stop this "wave." Israel is merely trying to stop the ersatz "Palestinians" from REALLY shooting themselves in the foot. A United Nations General Assembly resolution? Yummy. How do plan to enforce it, what with the General Assembly not having enforcement powers? And the Security Council? There goes that one. The United States is not going to let it happen. And -- even were it to do so -- it would be a resolution passed under Chapter VI of the United Nations Charter, meaning it is entirely nonbinding and unenforceable. What the ersatz "Palestinians" will come away with their efforts is a meaningless resolution with no enforcement powers and no intention of the Security Council to enforce such a resolution. Back to square one, assholes. Except this time, Israel is not going to entertain your silly notions that you actually deserve and should have a state. Israel is not going back to the negotiating table (yay!!). The ersatz "Palestinians" can have Gaza. Or, since Israel WILL formally annex Judea and Samaria, face the prospect of being repatriated to Jordan. Take your pick. Take your pick. Either way -- the ersatz "Palestinians" are toast. Were I (G-d forbid) an ersatz "Palestinian," I'd be finding myself a brand new leadership. Leaving the private Abbas Gulfstream behind, this time, needless to say. Israel: 8 Ersatz "Palestinians:" 0 Gee .... what else is new? LOL, LOL, LOL! Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of terrorist scum.
6. "122 states have recognized Palestine thus far"?
Doug ,   Rochester, USA   (08.06.11)
That is almost 2 out of every 3 nations. I bet that is more than the number of nations that have recognized Israel thus far.
7. South Sudan just not be recognized by Israel anymore !

11. they were already recognised back in 1988
tomer ,   herzeliyya   (08.06.11)
fat lot of good that did them.
12. It is high time, indeed, very high time the EU and its...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (08.06.11)
... leaders understand: The core cause of the Arab Israeli conflict, local and regional, has nothing to do with "Jerusalem", "settlements", "borders", "refugees", "security" or "water"; it is rather the total and categorical refusal of the Muslim-Arab world, local and regional, the PLO included of course, to accept Israel's very RIGHT to be - and not only the FACT that it is - to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people on ANY parcel of land between the River and the Sea. Thus, instead of focusing on symptoms of the conflict, be they what they may, the EU and its leadership must first and foremost demand of the Muslim-Arab leadership, the PLO included, to accept Israel's right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people, and to view a peace treat as the "end of the conflict and the end of all future demands". The fact that the Muslim-Arab leadership refuses to accept the above, for many, many decades, should give the EU and its leaders a clue as to the reason why peace is not presently within reach, only the management of the situation, until and unless the Muslim-Arabs are forthcoming.
13. Shove it CLOWNS...!!!!!

Nameless one ,   Jerusalem   (08.06.11)
Check the definition of "Nonsense"
19. salma come to palestine here
eurabia   (08.06.11)
20. Palestinian Self Delusion
yonatan ,   tel aviv israel   (08.06.11)
10,000 countries could agree to vote for recognizing Palestinian statehood but it will make no difference The UN does not have legal or practical power to translate the palestinian state into facts on the ground The only thing the Palestinians will get in September is a state of mind
21. PA State Has No Intention to Live in Peace Beside Israel
Dallas ,   Canada   (08.06.11)
So that means that all these countries are voting for a new terror state? Is the world insane?
22. The Leaders
Mary Snow ,   USA   (08.06.11)
The Leaders of many of these countries are being paid off personally to recognize Palestine most of the people don't care. You know they were bribed.
23. #17 Just a matter of time...and the time is not now.
24. # 17 /t's just a matter of Time

Khader ,   Bethlehem, Palestine   (08.06.11)
India and Brazil recognize Palestine, you want me to continue now or after September?
26. To: No. 17
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.06.11)
Reborn? When was it ever born the first time? Is al-Maliki and the rest of the terrorist thugs that you call a "leadership" planning to have a big public boo-hoo session? Well, that's not embarrassing, is it? Big terrorist babies crying.
27. YES!"Israel is busy fabricating plots on future protests."
JEWISH DOCTOR ,   Atlanta GEORGIA USA   (08.06.11)
IT's all based on previous experience with the ragtaggers, beggars, squatters and bomb vest carriers...oh yes, & the constant rain of rockets on Israel civilians... No RECOGNITION,NO SCHALIT, NO STATE...period...and no more gestures, and no more acceptance of acts of war that any other country WOULD NOT tolerate...
28. Question ????
Serge ,   Antwerp, Belgium   (08.06.11)
What exactly are these countries recognising ? Palestine is not a state untill the Palestinians declare it to be independant. Untill then, all these recognitions are a good PR move, but are legally meaningless.
29. More likely, be prepared for
A ,   Belgium   (08.06.11)
a wave of disappointment. The "palestinians" are expecting recognition for their new terrorist state from S.Sudan? After their people have been starved and butchered by moslems from the north? "In Darfur, in western Sudan, the United Nations has accused pro-government Arab militias of a campaign of ethnic cleansing against non-Arab locals." A quote from BBC news. So I dont think they will get much support from NON-MOSLEM S. Sudan. Honduras? Ok, if that makes them happy. Probably the Qaddafi of S. America...Chavez...will support them too. Dont figure on Merkel, Sarkozy and Berlosconni preparing celebrations for the new "palestine" terrorist state. So what "wave of recognition" is this guy talking about? Prepare for disappointment, Slima and the rest.
30. Recognition of Palestine
Moishe Kapoir ,   Nanuet USA   (08.06.11)
Jordan should be recognized as Palestine. Case Closed.
