We what? They what?

We abstained from the Palestinian vote.


UN members voted 138 to 9 in favour of recognising Palestine as a non-member state.  There were 41 abstentions.

I don't get it.


  1. I get it.

    The world just shoved a wooden stake through the bleeding left/liberal heart of the four state solution.

    A good thing too.

    Time for Israel to stop fucking around with these genocidal fascists and their Western allies.

    Israel is required by international law to annex Judea and Samaria and declare the borders where they are and at the river.

    It should have happened in 1920.

    Not too late.

    All that cash and effort to get a seat on the gig, and when it's time to stand up and be counted we fold our arms - funny old world, but there ya go.


  4. Justin - yeah, that was exactly my thought. Desperate for temporary power and influence: excise of influence by doing nothing.

    Geoffff - I gather you think this is a good thing, which I don't understand. Of course, I also don't understand the whole annexing of Judea and Samaria either (hadn't heard of any requirement) - who lives there now, is that pre or post 1967 border?

  5. I don't think it is a good thing because I still held out a forlorn hope for a two state solution

    This has killed it stone motherless dead.

    It has rewarded Hamas for its attacks on Israelis. Murdering Jews works. See?

    In that sense it's a good thing. It helps to clear the thinking.

  6. It has also killed traditional Jewish support for the ALP stone motherless dead. They'll miss them when they're gone.

    Michael's a good bloke and well liked but if he wants to get re elected in that seat in Caulfield my guess is he'll change parties.

    My sense is this is a sea change.

  7. I decided to use your kindly provided delete function to remove the last paragraph of this comment because some could consider it gratuitous and unnecessarily Islamophobic

    Even though it was true

    Judea and Samaria (or Judea/Samaria) is the correct name for the patch of land that the world has been miscalling the "West Bank" for the last 50 years. It is a term that dates from the Jordanian illegal occupation that ended dramatically in 1967.

    It was also a term that Jews and liberal Zionists went along with while they were under the extraordinary delusion that these genocidal monsters from the Dark Ages truly wanted their own country and were not in fact driven by some primeval instinct from the reptilian side of the mind to steal someone else's country and to rape and murder all its inhabitants.

    Which is exactly what they do. It is going on now in Africa where Islamist imperialism is rampant.

  8. Arrhh - West Bank, yes, that rings a bell.
