1. Having it both ways

On the 1 hand the Palestinians say they are occupied so that everything Israel does is a crime - no matter what they do. On the other hand they say the world has recognised them as an independent state, with an ancient history, culture and identity - and a flag flying at the UN. If this is so - then how can they claim to be occupied? I agree with the UN - they have a barbaric, corrupt, violent state of their own making and should be held accountable for their actions, rockets and terrorists - and FOR SURE they are not occupied.
2. Both, the Vaticane and Pal, are...
Beary White ,   Norway   (08.26.15)
..are hoaxes... The insane belief the pope is the G_d's substitude on earth !!! and the pals perception there is a country without borders, a country without civilized justice, without legal elected leaders, a country based on terror...... They are both HOAXES.
3. Strip out the PR stunts and what have we got
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (08.26.15)
Does the 'leadership' have ANY vision for Palestinian Statehood other than increasingly comical and useless stunts and total confusion? Nobody knows if Gaza is part of the Palestinian narrative when Hamas ideologies are totally at odds with the PA and when we even fly different flags! Why are the Palestinian Leadership not ASKING Palestinians to choose the route to a State that will coexist alongside Israel 1. Two State Solution: Independent Gaza and West Bank 2. One State Solution: Unified Gaza and West Bank 3. One State Solution: Created from Greater Gaza formed from land exchanges of West Bank for parts of Negev and possible land purchases from Egyptian Sinai Lets put the cards on the table.....AND START DEALING

Based on your response. I can only say, that I can not be sure if you are a Dad.... But the first part of your pseudonym is certainly accurate.
6. Palestinians in the with the Palestinian flag
jon ,   uk   (08.26.15)
UN should look at this masked faced people picture most people will classify them as terrorists and if they let them fly their flag in time IS will also ask to fly their flag
7. Why not? Most UN members are Arabs are Arabs inclined

Sure I am a dad - father of 3 with 1 grandson. Mad - that's the way I feel - given when it suits them - they are occupied, and when it doesn't - they are a recognised nation. Sometimes I feel that Israel missed an opportunity after its unilateral withdrawal - when Hamas "liberated" Gaza from the PA after their election -to recognise them as a separate state (the "Unoccupied Free State of Gazastan.")
9. Nope from the pope. Not full support more like a badge of

Neo Nazism for the #1 'religious oppressor of the Jews, the Vatican's pope. No wonder they have fewer and fewer attendees and tithes. The pope should grant the pals a state within the Vatican. Then, the pope would have to watch out and try not to lose his head. KEEP BUILDING !!
10. # 5 Sarah B is that really you?

11. # 2 Yes to that !!

the pope is now a politician who sadly chose the wrong side but, don't they always? Neither the pope or his pals will survive the next century. This pope does nothing to save his congregation. Soon, there wont be any left to save but, what does the pope care? He invites pal terrorists to share in the Vatican's lies and thefts. Thankfully most people know Israel belongs to the Jews too bad the pope does not. KEEP BUILDING !!
