You posted: "Israel declared independence after the UN voted in favor of its creation. There is no way the UN Security Council will vote in favour of granting statehood if its not the result of a negotiated agreement with Israel." How quickly you forget history. The UN also voted in favour of a Palestinian state at the same time. Therefor, in reality, the Palestinians do not really need any aproval by the UN or anyone else. The right for the Palestinians to create and have a state of their own is in the UN charter. The same charter that granted us the right to create the state of Israel. You posted: "They were only in Palestine because they were given a League of Nations mandate to lay the groundwork for the creation of a jewish homeland & by 1947 they decided they wanted to leave" The Palestinians did not decide to leave, they were forced by Begin and the rest of the Jewish terrorist groups to leave. You need to re-educate yourself regarding the history of those times.
