    Let's face facts. Israel has opted out of a two state solution, which it was never really commited to in the first place. Israel claims that an independent State of Palestine is an eternal,existential security risk to the State of Israel. It has just passed a racist loyalty oath that many Israelis find repugnant as well as the international community. Israel wants is an ethnocracy in which democracy applies to Jews and not Arabs. Be aware that this racist law will be the first of many disenranchising all Arab citizens of Israel. The Modovan pitbull has already insulted the French and Spanish delegations. They should return home and make clear that given this sad reality, the will advocate for a Security Council Resolution which will recognise a State of Palestine within the borders of June '67 and EJ as its capital. Given zionist intransigence and arrogance there is no other option. Unfortunately, the best we can hope for from the US which claims it strongly supports a Palestinian state is an abstention if this vote comes to the UN. But no doubt Israel will very rapidly be divroced from the civilised international community.
