Game Time: UN Palestine Vote Edition

Game 1: Count the number of outright lies and defamatory statements against Israel:

Game 2: Find one good reason why Europe deserves to avoid impending life under the rule of an Islamic Caliphate

So how did Europe vote? It about split between voting for the Palestinian bid and abstaining, with only one “no,” from the Czech Republic.

Game 3: Create your own tombstone for the “peace process” using this site and paste it in the comments.

    New Pat Condell Youtube video out. Same old, but topical. He, too just gets it. Wish it was possible to play it to UN Gen Assembly straight after Abbas address.
    Game 1: I lost count at 27 (just the blatant outrageous ones, but to start again, I would have to listen to that drivel again.
    Highlights were
    1. “forced out of their beautiful, embracing, prosperous country into refugee camps” – where they lived in complete oblivious harmony for nearly 20 years, without complaint, but also without rebuildinng their beauty and prosperity, until they awoke to their horrendous circumstances. 1948 Naqba mentioned quite a few times, and for me, a simple person that I am, it becomes difficult to work out whether it’s 1967 or 1948 they would like to reverse.
    2. The Palestenian people have always strived not to lose their humanity…” and with a straight face. If not a statehood, how about an Oscar? “Always” obviously made an exception for the humanity of last week, when 6 men were murdered for the suspicion of collaborating with Israel and one dragged through the streets.
    3. The “Ethnic Cleansing” – he did not say that! How did Israel miss the 1.5 million Palestenian citizens of Israel in their cleansing? We fail at cleansing. We should have some lessons from the moderate Abbas with his plans regarding a Juderein Palestine.

    Well, that’s 22 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. I’m reporting you to the UN for crimes against good taste for even posting this garbage. It was my own personal 22 minute nakbah.

    • Inessa

      I’m sorry to remind you about how words can come and bite you on the bum, but a certain someone recently wrote that the way to destroy Hamas is to show how nicely Israel is negotiating with Abbas. He wouldn’t sell Israel out at all, would he? The problem with trying to be fair and honest and left and good, is that you expect others to act the same and they keep disaapointing you.

      • Jim from Iowa

        Inessa, are you actually the kind of commenter who would tell another commenter who faithfully posts on this wonderful site, “I told you so?” Because, if that is the case, I can’t think of anything more hideous or underhanded than that. I never said Abbas was much of a winner. (To me, he vaguely resembles Floyd the barber from “Mayberry” mumbling on incoherently in Arabic.) In fact, if memory serves (it was several days ago), I implied that Abbas is such a pathetic loser that Israel would have to prop him up for him to have any chance of success with the Palestinian people. At least that’s what I think I meant to say.

    • sams

      We have to sue this site for reparations …

      Game 1: lost count at 25 – 30 lies by 5 minutes in.

      Game 2: The end of European wine … unless you think it is red urine and only drink Chilean or Aussie wines like me.

      Game 3: Gravestone Generator

  • Inessa

    Really? Having watched this, you can’t think of anything more hideous and underhanded? Nothing comes to mind?
    I don’t know what’t more vile and frightening – his speech or that so many countries voted for him. Dooooom.

    • Jim from Iowa

      My world is pretty much limited to singing show tunes and reading IsraellyCool. Sorry. But it does make me a reasonably happy person. I recognize your central argument that the Palestinians, and Abbas in particular, are maddening to have to deal with in any kind of rational way. But what else you got? Moshe Feiglin in the Knesset? Tell me how that works out for the Israeli people a year from now.

      • juvanya

        Why do you think Feiglin will sharply change the direction of Knesset?

        • Jim from Iowa

          I think as an MK, Feiglin could more effectively undermine any effort for the Israeli government to enter into a negotiated settlement with the PA. This would be the case even in the likely event that Likud forms the core of the new Israeli ruling coalition with Netanyahu returned as the prime minister. I can’t imagine that Feiglin would actually be given a position in the new government, although his assignment as the men’s room attendant at Ben Gurion would be acceptable to me.

          • mrzee

            Feiglin could more effectively undermine any effort for the Israeli government to enter into a negotiated settlement with the PA

            The palesimians themselves would certainly never do that.

            • Jim from Iowa

              Indeed, the Palestinians have shown themselves to be very bad at making peace with the Israelis. They’re going to need a lot of help to get the job done.

  • mzk1

    Elections have consequences. A previous President, I think it was the anti-Israel George Bush I, stpped this last time. The US could have stopped this. If Romney had been elected, it never would have happened. Thank you, Barack Hussein.

    We have a country with no borders, no nothing. The proper response would be to define those borders, annex the settlement areas, and recognize the Palestinian state. The problem is that this would abandon those settlements not within the areas, and curb our ability to prevent terrorism.

    • Jim from Iowa

      You left out the part where Romney would have had Abbas carried off by winged monkeys.

      • mzk1

        I give up – is he witch or a vampire?

        • Jim from Iowa

          I’m not sure myself, but there is something unsettling to think that the person who nearly was our next president would have as his Thanksgiving feast some take-out from Boston Market. Maybe it’s best for America to just think of Romney as Tinkerbell and have him quietly disappear.

          • Inessa

            I think it’s more unsettling that he’s into that polygamous, mysogenistic, homophobic, racist religion (something for everyone in that one). On the other hand, it may be more relevant to see how he ran his business. Either way, wishful thinking isn’t useful

  • liamalpha

    Interesting that Serbia voted “yes”. I wonder if they recognized Kosovo yet.

    • juvanya

      Spain, China, Russia, Morocco, Turkey…

    • Nenad

      Like I’ve just said Serbia supported Palestine because USA and its satellites were against it.

  • Norman B.

    This sort of “recognition” by the General Assembly is in the end just sound and fury, signifying nothing. It is nothing more than Abbas’s latest shuck and jive to avoid his responsibility to negotiate a settlement with Israel based on compromise. Meanwhile, there is a law on the U.S. books that penalizes with defunding any part of the UN that tries to act on that “recognition.” Congress is not about to repeal that law.

    • Inessa

      Of course it’s all symbolic, in the end. But it is significant that it sends a message to Israel. It also sends the message that all is forgiven for Hamas – no consequences. It also allows this ass to pump out his chest and strut as the leader f the Palestenians. I guess this does offer the fool some protection – from what Hamas did to him in Gaza t o happen in West Bank. I can’t understand why he can’t be sued for libel – the ethnic cleansing charge alone, for example.

  • Nenad

    During a voting in UN 2 or 3 years ago when leaders of countries discussed if declaration of independence of Kosovo was in accordance with International Law Israel abstained while USA supported so called declaration. Besides Serbia has nothing against Israel but against Israeli mentors i.e. the United States. I guess that’s why Serbia supported Palestine.

  • juvanya

    Props to Czechia and Ukraine (I guess). Shame on Grenada (homeland of our housekeeper). Props to the 40 or so abstainers, especially Haiti, Mongolia, Togo, Cameroon, Congo-Kinshasa, Colombia, Paraguay, etc..

    • Joshua

      I don’t think Ukraine was present. Or, for that matter, Kosovo.

  • clive

    Canada voted no

    • mzk1

      If Harper were President of the US, this never would have happened.

      With 25% of the finding (not to mention the subsidiaray agencies), the US has a termendous amount of pressure.

      Reality today is determined by Google and Wikipedia. As someone who’s worked on Wikipedia, it is difficult to underestimate the amount of damage this has done. Thanks, Barack Hussein!

      • mzk1

        Sorry, that should be “overestimate”. Negative logic, y’know.

      • Inessa

        I’m not arguing, but how exactly wound Harper have prevented this?

          That Gravestone Generator made me want to give up on the two-state solution myself.

    The best answer to this travesty is the Second Psalm.

    “Why are the nations in an uproar,
    And why do the peoples mutter in vain?
    The kings of the earth stand up
    And the princes conspire together
    Against God and His anointed.
    ‘Let us break their bands asunder.
    Let us cast away their cords from us.’
    From on high, God is laughing at them.
    He shakes His head in derision,
    Then He will vex them with His sore displeasure.
    ‘Truly it is I who have established My kingdom
    Upon Zion, My holy mountain.’”

    • Jim from Iowa

      Or, How’d you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island (or even Channukah)? I think they’re one of the nine who voted “No.”

      • Norman B.

        The UN is a joke and each year it becomes a little harder for the State Department to justify funding it.

  • Inessa

    I found this great quote in an article by Alan Dershowitz.
    As Abba Eban once put it: “If Algeria introduced a General Assembly Resolution that the world was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass 100 to 10 with 50 abstentions.” That’s pretty much what happened the other day.
