    I have been reading the comments on both sides of the issue. There are lots of passion, which, sadly are nationalist in rethorec and do not, for the most part apply reason. As a Canadian, let me make clear that most Canadians do not subscribe to Harper's view to vote against a Pal state. Moreover, the US is to blame for this qagmire because of its bias, one sided policy in the ME. Personally, I support Isreal; however, Isreal has had many chances to make peace. However, since Isreal knows that it has the US unbridled support it refuses--because it knows it can get away. On the otherhand, had the US uses a balance approach and treat PAL and Isreal equally--reward for good behaviour and penalty for bad behaviour, Isreal would have made peace long time ago. In my view, "justice" does not spell way for Isreal and another for PAL. The ocupation is wrong AND MUST BE STOP. Whether the UN is the correct furum to decide on PAL sate is not the issue. The issue in my view is does the PAL deserve a state? If the answer is "yes," then whether it's negotiated between Isreal or the SC should not be an issue. The reason why Isreal is so paranoid now is becasue if PAL is successful, then Isreal will not be able to get away with the excuses it uses to prolong this issue. I just hope and pray that all involved will come to their senses and realise that no otomic bomb; no military force; no blockade, no opression will be able to perpuate and supress people; because throughout the anals of history, we have seen that those opressive methods cannot sustain themselves; they only last temporarly.
