    O 29 Nov 1947 the UNSC voted to create an Israeli state and a Palestinian state. Israel exercised the option, and "unilaterally" declared on 14 May 1948 its independence. Now, 63 years later, the 'West' is fretting over the Palestinians' intention to do the same. Am I missing something. Does the US have to beg the Israelis to throw them some bones in order to sabotage the Palestinians' rightful prerogative to exercise their self determination?. Israel staked its position loud and clear. Leave her alone and let the UN General Assembly do what it deems right and lawful.
