    Since the end of that war, France and the UK have declined in world influence while China has risen. In spite of these changes, the original purpose remains. Now the security council nations will vote in such a way to eliminate "rifts" between them? Where does this leave the rest of the world? DO they need to start their own club in order to get a fair shake? It is still in the best interests of the Palestinians and the Arabs to push for a vote on this. Don't be bullied by others that don't care to take an official position on this important issue. The fact that they want to avoid this issue is the best reason to shove it down their throats and force them to take an honest stand.
