The Jew-hating genie has been spectacularly unleashed onto the world stage once again. Following the decision by 138 of the 193 member states of the United Nations General Assembly to accord non-member observer state status to the non-existent state of Palestine, the vote also ominously endorsed another paragraph contained in the Resolution, that which reaffirms "the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and to independence in their State of Palestine on the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967."Such majority consensus supporting the view that all of this territory -- not just part of it - should comprise the State of Palestine - is destined to cause untold suffering among Jews, Arabs and other states caught up in the ensuing turmoil, unless it is quickly reversed.
