The Middle East is full of mirages. The definition (thanks to WIlkipedia is): "A mirage is a naturally occurring optical phenomenon in which light rays are bent to produce a displaced image of distant objects or the sky. " In other words what you see is not what you get. The danger here is that this UN recognition of Palestine, will only embolden the Palestinians to distance themselves from returning to peace negotiations because they falsely believe that this will bring them closer to having their own state. At least a state not born through violence (and non-recognition of Israel).
