The Pal's efforts have shown that that US and Israel do not support peace negotiations. These efforts have exposed US hypocrisy and Israeli's multitude of war crimes. In fact, the Pals never expected a state from their efforts at the UN bc they knew that the AIPAC owned US would veto. Their efforts gained them more international support than ever. They are now members of UNESCO. That is HUGE. And if the Pals chose to go before the UN General Assembly, they will win there. The ONLY thing dead in the water is Israeli Democracy.
