1. Camelians; what is their real colour?
Tarbouche ,   Aswan   (09.18.11)
Arab asylum seekers from 1920 onwards came into the Land of Israel for jobs, Now hallucinating that they have rights to the land G-d allocated to Israel. May they all be shahids until they run out of virgins up in heaven, that can't have their honourariums patched with apple skin. As expected, they will shoot themselves
2. Will recognize you for what you are:terror butchers..
Anna M Sedda ,   Rome-Italy-EU   (09.18.11)
Yes Mr Abbas-Abu mazen and whatever names you will invent to escape reality.European will recognize you has the terror leader and antisemitic after arci Terrorist Arafat,and for this reason we will all say NO to Palestine !!!!
3. Norway has to learn it the hard way....
Jehuda   (09.18.11)
...that ''He who curses Israel will be cursed!'' Terror recently came to Norway ( just after arch terrorist Abbas was guestof norwas government .......! ) - if Norways government doesnt stop supporting terror groups like the socalled PLO, Israels God has many ways to deal with Norways extreme left-wing government.

If this was a card game the decision is an easy one. The Pals have no cards: 1) The USA is going to veto the bid at the UN Security Council, which kills it. So this bid is DOA. The Pals have no cards. 2) The lawyers in England basically told Abbas it was a horrible move, legally speaking, for the status of the PLO and the mythical "right of return". 3) Right now the EU states are split on those who will vote Pro vs Con on the UN bid. So the Pals want to trade a losing hand, into a bluff that wins the game. Why would anybody agree to that? But if the world had any brains this is when you go "all in". This is when you refuse the Pals (who are they to "demands" anyway). You tell the Pals: A) to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, B) to openly state Israel has a right to exist, and change their Charters in the PLO and Hamas to reflect that. C) that they renounce terrorism and stop the rocket attacks. D) That Abbas sit down without preconditions at the negotiating table. My point is right now, at this moment in time, the world has a chance to settle this matter. But only if the world unites against the Pal terrorism. The world will never be in a better position. So I expect the world to BLOW IT.
6. Did the PA Envoy in Germany mention Munich,1972?
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (09.18.11)
If he did,he might have pointed out that his boss,Mahmoud Abbas was the financier for the 1972 Munich Olympics terrorist atrocity.The same man who's demanding Germany's support and taking Germany's money. Maybe it's payback time,at last. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
7. to #5 Mark from Georgia
A ,   Belgium   (09.18.11)
"So I expect the world to BLOW IT." Sadly enough, I think you got that right, bro. I agree.
8. #5, Mark...there is NOTHING to negotiate,
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (09.18.11)
Israel must DECLARE Gaza = Palestine...and the whole world will just be HAPPY to recognise FREE-PALESTINE...and that it will be...a bit later on, Israel will ANNEX J+S >>> CASE CLOSED...!!!
9. a warning to Europe........
tiki ,   belgium   (09.18.11)
""We'll drop membership bid in Security council, if EU supports us in General Assembly"". People usually would call this 'blackmail, but when it concerns the "" Palestinians, different rules count and it's called 'negotiations. This group of losers is holding the world, out of whom's pocket they eat, by the throat and this pathetic world lets them & applauds.
10. Hungary will back Palestine
Avatar ,   Budapest, Hungary   (09.18.11)
"Traditionally Israel-friendly" Hungary seems to be willing to back the recognition of independent Palestine in change for Arab states' support in the General Assembly of Hungary's non-permanent membership in the Security Council.
11. External factors leave 1 option: BIG ISRAEL
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (09.18.11)
12. Desperation drives Abbas to Self Harm
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (09.19.11)
In the old days, illegitimate children were rejected. Need to sympathise with Abbas leading a people cut out by those they claim as their kin,Arabs Israel, despite having to absorb 1 M jewis refugees ethnically cleansed from Arab lands mostly in 1948-1951has been the kindest party to Pals. Abbas is a Mavin and knows where he stands. Damned if he will and damned if he won't, he is harming self and people with an idiotic claim that will fail to deliver his claim if he wins and hurt his people if he loses
13. History&geography teach : BIG ISRAEL practical compromise.
