Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Addresses the 66th United Nations General Assembly at UN Headquarters in New York

25 September 2011
 

In February 2008, US President said the US supported Kosovo's independence because "we believe it will bring peace ... Sooner rather than later you've got to say enough's enough. Kosovo's independent."

There was "a disagreement but we believe as many other nations do that history will prove this to be the correct move", the president asserted.

Serbia earlier withdrew its envoy to Washington in protest. It said Kosovo's declaration of independence violated international law.

Kosovo was part of formal Yugoslavia federation with a population mere 2.5 million, of which 10% are Serbs. NATO has been allowed to stay in Kosovo and control the national security matter after independence.

The UN Security Council was at a time divided over how to respond to Kosovo's move.

In September 2011, U.S. President said the U.S. would veto any U.N. resolution recognizing an independent Palestinian State, because peace would not be achieved “through statements and resolutions at the U.N.”

“We will only succeed in that effort if we can encourage the parties to sit down together, to listen to each other and to understand each other’s hopes and fears. That is the project to which America is committed, and that is what the United Nations should be focused on in the weeks and months to come,” the president asserted.

Israel earlier threaten to oppose the president's re-election bid but welcomed the latest move. It said Israel's rule over Palestine is good not only for Jews but for Palestinians.

Palestine was never historically part of Jewish state, and it has a population about 3.8 million, of which 0% are Jews. It is believed that NATO will have no chance to stay in Palestine and control its security matter after independence.

The U.N. members are united in supporting Palestinian independence, except the United States.

Further question: If a people lived in a land for a thousand years have no right to self-termination but can only be subjected to the rule of another group of people who left the land a thousand years ago and returned to reclaim the land rather recently, what is the right the British colonists should have to form a federation independent from native Indian's jurisdiction? For goodness sake, the White settlers never lived there before, not since homo sapiens' time, while the native Indians never left the land in 10,000 years since the Ice Age, should the land of the United States be returned to Indians and should the White and the Black migrants be placed under the rule of the indigenous Yellows?

Perfect Speech mr. president we all support you in this spark step...the whole world with you except america.

巴勒斯坦总统的发言精彩极了,全世界都支持你,除了美国。

HenryDavidT:

True, BOTH "Arabs" & "Jews" have been living in that region since homo sapiens wandered out of Africa.

But the MAJORITY of the Israelis living in modern Israel today, or grandparents, CAME FROM EUROPE.

On the other hand, I doubt very much even 2% of the Palestinians living in the "disputed" lands came from Laos, Argentina, Lituania, Poland, or Germany.

确实,阿拉伯人和犹太人自从猿人时代就生活在哪个地区了。但问题是绝大多数现在居住在以色列的是最近或两三代以前从欧洲移民过来的。而巴勒斯坦人呢,我怀疑是否有百分之二的人是从老挝、阿根廷、拉脱维亚、波兰或德国过来的。

Chris25698:

He's right. Peace efforts failed for one reason only: Israel refused to stop it's illegal building of settlements on Palestinian land. We are dealing with an ultra right-wing government in Israel that makes any deal impossible. Abbas had no choice but to go to the UN.

他说的对。和平进程的失败只源于一个原因: 以色列拒绝停止在巴勒斯坦土地上非法建立犹太人居住区。我们面对的是一个极右以色列政权,这使得任何协商都成为不可能。除了求助于联合国,阿巴斯没有别的选择。

lover3344:

How can America support Israel? they don't even give the Palestine the right to vote, this is Nazi rule.

美国怎么竟会支持以色列?他们连选举权都不给巴勒斯坦人,这简直就是一个纳粹政权。

Wikileaks Cable Suggests
the US Bombed A Building to Destroy Evidence
they Executed 10 Handcuffed Iraqi Civilians, Including A Woman, Children Under 5, And An Infant

The Center for Research on Globalization reports that Wikileaks has released cables that confirm the United States has been conducted targeted assassinations of Iraqi civilians.

Cable 59146 reveals one of the incidents of targeted assassinations in which the U.S. government tried to destroy evidence of the executions by bombing the building. The officials story was the building collapsed under heavy fire, but witnesses interviewed at the scene say 6 missiles fire by U.S. aircraft destroyed the building.

Unfortunately for the war criminals, autopsies of the bodies found in the building revealed at least 10 civilians found in the building were all handcuffed and shot in the head execution style before the building was bombed.

Even worse the victims including a woman in her 70's and 5 children under the age of 5, with the youngest being a 5 month infant.

The U.S. government then publicly covered up the executions by stating the deaths where the result of a building collapse that followed a search for ‘a foreign fighter facilitator for the Al Qaeda in Iraq network’ which the media reported without question.

Admin: If President Nicolas Sarkozy and PM David Cameron and PM Jens Stoltenberg and the leaders of the rest of the EU member nations who have participated in the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan and in Libya in the name of protecting human rights and freedom fail to take action against U.S. administration over its possible war crimes against the humanity, should these politicians' true motivation of going to the wars with the US deserves closer scrutiny by their people and by the world community?

About Taiwan's Indulgence in Military Expansion in Order to Help the United States to Prevent the Unification and Development of Chinese Nation:

复读机 (washeng.net):

根子的問題。。。恰恰是中國大陸自己。。。。換句話,因為08年金融危机以來,祖國大陸毫無原則的給了台灣一系列的不平等的貿易优惠,使得即將破產的台灣經濟有了救命的稻草,居然可以盈余有錢來窮兵黷武,抗拒統一,甘做美國在亞太地區的看門狗,來制衡祖國的崛起,民族的复興!

再比如說,同樣是海南和台南。。我們的香蕉受了災,卻宁可爛在地里,喂豬而無人問津,而台灣的香蕉卻被廣東、山東、。。。几倍的高价買回爛在超市里。。。嘿嘿,這就是差距啊。。。居然國台辦對台灣人民的關切超越了馬英九.

Omsk (washeng.net):

美聯社的報導指出,楊洁篪以正面語气結束演說,表示美中關系「將克服困難,持續向前推進」。 等于說,我們抗議其實衹是做個樣子,抗議完了我們照樣會拍你們馬屁跟你們搞好關系的,別擔心啊主子。
