Jewish NGO at UNGA for PA Vote..

"It felt like once again it was us against the world

“When Mahmoud Abbas came out the entire room was cheering like Jesus himself had just got up on the stage, like a rock star had just come out.”

This is the description Natalie Solomon, manager of the Israel Programs of Taglit-Birthright‘s Alumni Community, gives of Mahmoud Abbas’s entry into the UN General Assembly Hall Thursday. She was the leader of the small group of young Israel supporters who were originally refused admission to the assembly hall at Thursday’s “The Question of Palestine” debate that concluded in a vote to upgrade the status of the Palestinian Authority to non-member status.

In the end the group was allowed into the hall–sort of[...]

“We found ourselves in a sea of Palestinian supporters – including the 100 brought in by the UN’s own Division for Palestinian Rights. (In total there were about 320 seats in the visitor’s gallery, with some reserved for members of the press),” Bayefsky added. Revealingly, during Abbas’ lengthy speech the outbursts of clapping across the gallery would commence **before the translation of the Arabic sentence into other languages had finished. It was an exercise in what one might call Benghazi-style spontaneity,” she concluded.

Solomon said that while the crowd cheered for Abbas, “when the Israel ambassador was speaking you could hear a pin drop. There were two or three points when we clapped and afterward we stood up and gave him a standing ovation.”

**A commenter noted this about the what Abbas was saying in "Arabic". I am unsure if it was in a radio broadcast or at the UNGA-
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas succeeded in his appeal at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, Nov. 29, to upgrade the status of the PLO as an “observer state’ at the UN.

All presentations that Abbas made to his people in the Arabic language made it clear that his concept of an “observer state” will include all of Palestine, “from the river to the sea”, in accordance with the PLO Covenant, which was never cancelled.[...]

“Today the whole world recognizes the criminality of the occupation, the existence of a Palestinian State. Everyone except the United States, which has prevented Palestinian aspirations in the past, and Micronesia, a country of only 30 kilometers.

Today is a proud day to be a Palestinian, and we must be united. Today we take the first step towards ending the occupation, and reclaiming our homeland, from Gaza, to Nablus, Jerusalem, Haifa, Afula, all of Palestine.

We will use our newfound recognition to hold the occupation accountable for its crimes against humanity in the past two weeks.

We are all one Palestine, and now more than ever we must be united because this is the beginning of the end of the occupation.

Our brothers in Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Gaza, we now all speak with one voice”.

Now is the time to stop US aid to the Palestinian Authority[PA]. If you so choose to demand no more of our hard earned tax dollars go to the PA, here is some info:
It is up to US citizen to write to every members of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the US House Foreign Relations Committee,[members of both committees listed on the internet] to demand a suspension of US aid to the Palestinian Authority, as a response to their heinous action at the East River today.

The Capitol switchboard number is: 202-224-3121. You can reach your representatives this way. The comment line for the White House is: 202-456-1111;1414. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG, PRESIDENT ISRAEL ADVOCACYTASK FORCE

Now, what are we gonna do about the f'n UN?

Oh, and Xariif: F**k you bitch! You aren't welcome here.

1 Whine, whine, whine. The world is waking up and it's about time. When the zionists realize others in the world count perhaps everyone in the world wouldn't be turning against them. Better keep sucking up to and buying American politicians because the zionist cat is out of the bag.

Why? Why should the United States even be taking a side in what happens in the middle east? We don't have enough problems here?
Why doesn't every US citizen write to every member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the US House Foreign Relations Committee and demand suspension of US aid to Israel, as a response to the many massacres committed against innocent Palestinians people? Or better yet, perhaps a nation 17 trillion in dept should suspend aid to all foreign countries.

"RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG, PRESIDENT ISRAEL ADVOCACYTASK FORCE" Contact a Rabbi to get an unbiased opinion? How about contacting a Muslim scholar for another one? I'm sure he would be just as unbiased.

3 @WTFup: You have your opinion above, and this is my opinion. Why don't you go and crawl back under that rock you just crawled from out under jackass. You, like your buddies Greyrooster and Xariif aren't wanted here anymore. Go suck each others dicks somewhere else.

4 If you mean in your own liberal way, switching zionist for Jewish, yes I am. By facts, I don't see where you listed one fact, just your opinion. And opinions are like assholes, everybody got one. You have a nice day.

5 "I find a difference between zionists and what I consider you're normal American of Jewish descent."

You've got to be kidding me. People like you only say that because for people like you, there really is no differentiation between Zionist and Jew. This excuse allows people like you to hate, then when called out on it, say but I'm only against the Zionists, when in fact your just anti-Jewish period. Throw in some bullshit numbers about how all the Muslims and Christians hate the Jews, and then say that they shouldn't be allowed to vote and you've just shown us how you truly think. BTW, I believe ignorant flypecks like yourself should take a civic's test before they vote. Or at the very least be able to show that they know the difference between fact and facet. Anyway, nice new name you got there Grey, did you think of it all by yourself, your did you have help from someone?
