Palestine and statehood
I want to start a discussion on the events that occurred yesterday at the general assembly of the united nation. Palestine was granted the status of non-member observer state.
The vote taken was 138 votes form, 9 against and 41 abstentions.
United states, Canada, Israel, Czech republic and some pacific island states voted against.

My own view

Reciprocity

on the situation is that Palestine is finally going the non-violent route to reaching statehood. This is the same direction Israel attempted and won statehood with.

History

The question of who was there first is absurd in my opinion. The Jewish people were obviously there "first" since if we categorize "people" by their faith that is the answer since Islam was created in 600 CE (ish) and Judaism is older than that then of course then Jews have a older religion then Islam. But is is absurd because if Caucasians were told to go back to Europe from North America do you think there would be such an majority of the UN voting for that?

The violence

Well one has to do a simple Google search to view that since the 21st century there is a 1 Israeli to 6 Palestinians killed in the conflict.
With the completion of iron dome one has to assume that the death toll of the Israeli will even more so significantly diminish.

My understanding of the no side

Surrounded by Arabs

So Israel is surrounded by Arab countries that don't believe in it's existence. yeah it might be a lil scary but how much military power does Israel possess with US backing it. (answer a whole lot military power)

History

War of 1967 (hope I got that date right) - yeah as explained Muslim don't like the Jews there

Xenophobia/warranted xenophobia

Muslims kill people over cartoons of their prophet

If you are anti-Palestinian state and you think i didn't explain your reasoning correctly please do. If you want to add please do. Any thoughts
