For Palestine, this is not about a state; it is about the destruction of Israel and it is about Radical Islam gaining possession of Jerusalem and "The Temple". Sadly, it always has been and it always will be. A great statesman once said, "The only thing needed for evil triumph is for good men to do nothing". And if there are actually any "good men" in the U.N. , they appear as usual, to be doing nothing. ..Shame on them. Israel has a right to exist, and a right to defend itself. That Radical Islam wishes to destroy Israel comes as no surprise; that so many in the U.N. are willing to give them the lives of those Jews and Christians who live in Israel in order to appease them - does.
