Shawn from Dallas: The UN is a loaded bodied - the one country one vote situation allows the Muslim block states and their supporters to do what they want. If they this blockwere to fulfill previous resolutions of the UN ofthe issue. There would have been 2 States and the region couldhave been a constructive and substantial block in the world economic infrasrtucture. Unfortunaley the Muslim block do not want a Jewish presence in the area and ever since the they lost in the UN they have violently (even before the mandate ended) attacked Israel and have refused to resolve the impasse they caused by being defeated in war. They have further excabaretd the situation by not helping resettle the refugees who they caused to flee from the war they started. Pity for all those,on both sides, who have to suffer because of thisaggressive short sighted atitude. Let's hope that 2011 will see the situation being resolved and that the people of the region willbe allowed to develop politically and economically.
