That will make the YNET Obama haters happy because there skin will crawl knowing that Obama supported Israel in it's dire need of help from it's only true friend in the world. I also wonder if the arrogant Israeli PM would even thank the US. What an ungrateful ally. like the former sec of def Robert Gates said.
2. ytzhak benhorin- "un votes..."
sjoerd ruurd van der ,   mankindnation   (09.21.11)
chance the law, legislation, charter etc. of/ for the un. abolish the security council right away/immediately, because of injustice. a vote in the un general assembly will be/is enough.
3. #1 put veto where sun dont shine
We wouldt be here if it was not for obamas anti israel policies. In the words of eminem we apreciate your support but arent begging for it. America should vote for its interests.
4. Abbas dose not want to negotiate with Israel because
ASHER ,   NY,USA   (09.21.11)
Palestinians dose not want to accept Israel as a Jewish state. All they have in mind is by taking advantage of their population in the future take over Israel through the nature of her democracy ruling ONLY in Israel and change that to another Islamic extreme country in the region....... What a delusion!!!!!!! The world knows by recognizing Palestine the world will be much more closer to the Extreme Islamic Empire in Middle East and then Europe and most of the world not much later..... It is ONLY Israel that can save the world from disaster and all it needs is some intelligence in the UN body to stop the madness... Vote NO to Palestine and vote YES to direct talks........
5. #1 NO BRAIN!
Participants there with a brain who are concerned about the consequences of a yes vote - will abstain or vote against. The US will be doing itself a favour by applying a veto. Why you ask? Have a little think about it....
6. May Gabon, Bosnia and Portugal Vote against
BA   (09.21.11)
or abstain...And last if not least, we can count on the US Veto. Most of the General Assembly is horribly uninformed of the truth regarding the non-state of so-called "Palestine".
7. Again Sheik, you view with a particularly
Robert Haymond ,   Israel/Canada   (09.21.11)
narrow focus. We (Israel) are the one true ally the USA can depend on in the Mideast. We always have been. There is something to be said for that although you appear too limited to consider anything but your own (consistently) less than broad perspective.
8. to Sheik #1
Mike ,   Atlanta USA   (09.21.11)
The reason Israel is in this mess is BECAUSE of Obama's policies.
9. Well Obama, This is Another Fine Mess
SLZ ,   NY   (09.21.11)
With apologies to Oliver and Hardy: "Well, Obama, this is ANOTHER fine mess you've gotten us into." Perry and Romney are probably right. Obama is at best naive and arrogant. He has, perhaps unwittingly, encouraged Abbas to seek statehood, while fanning the flames of radical Islam across the Middle East.
10. The Nations, United Or Not United
Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (09.21.11)
B"H - The upcoming UN vote maybe important for the secular State of Israel, it is not important for the Jews: We go by Hashem, our G-d, not by the nations, united or not united
11. this is not complicated ...
michael redbourn ,   Arad Israel   (09.21.11)
The PA will not accept Israel as a Jewish State but wants a Muslim State free of Jews. The above is a complete non-starter for any negotiations! Even anti-Israel supporters would surely be shocked if this new Muslim State started forcibly removing 500,000 Jews from their homes. And Israel would sit back and watch? Why does Abbas refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish State? He wants millions of Muslims to return (700,000 left) to Israel but can't insist on that if Israel is a Jewish State.
12. #1 : Hey Parrott
Do you have anything original in your head? No such thing as Obama Haters per say. People in Israel live on a knife edge , one war away from the end. Along comes a President who has unleashed Islamist empowerment wholesale in the area and rocked the boat on settlements. Go eat some more seeds Parrott
13. pals will sue Israel at International Court for "war-crimes"
mary of Bethany ,   singapore   (09.21.11)
100 % "NO" to full membership! one stupid flotilla investigation is enough for Israel. Hamas will kick out PLO and sue Israel for Operation Cast Lead. Jenin... you will open the floodgate and allow the medias to persuade even "those sitting on the fence-nations" to sway towards the arabs. may the L_RD bless Israel and her allies.
14. #1 sheik rattle & roll, USA
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (09.21.11)
If BHO issues a veto, then only for his reelection and not for Israel.
15. #2 mankindnation, justice for all, cosmopoltist
Phil ,   Ireland   (09.21.11)
What does "chance the law, legislation, charter etc. of/for the un" mean? This makes no sense. As for abolishing the UN, only the UN can do that. "Mankindnation" does not understand.
16. @1 Veto = no Palestine...tough luck.
17. How about the US-Gabon relations?(End)
Nora Tel Aviv   (09.21.11)
18. Bless the countries who stand by Israel
Phil ,   Tampa   (09.21.11)
