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
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
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?
The following are some comments left by the
video viewers on Youtube site:
Perfect Speech mr. president we all support you in this
spark step...the whole world with you except america.
True, BOTH "Arabs" & "Jews" have
been living in that region since homo sapiens wandered out
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.
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.
How can America support Israel? they don't even give the
Palestine the right to vote, this is Nazi rule.
GO GO GO Palestine for freedom !!!
