...but some of those European nations will succumb to Israeli and American pressure. The majority will still favor the Palestinians in spite of the pressure. In reality, the position of America and Israel, that the Palestinians must "negotiate with Israel to gain a nation is a knee slapper. The Palestinians have no power and no influence that can compete with American influence. How can they negotiate under such conditions? How can they negotiate when time is on the side of Israel? America has a massive conflict of interest as arbitrator.

Only those votes that America and Israel hold captive will violate their moral code. This includes the UK, Germany, possibly France, and Italy.
