some of these things are just like the others

first they sat Syria on the Human Rights Council…

France said on Tuesday it would vote in favour of Palestinian non-member status at the United Nations, boosting Palestinian efforts to secure greater international recognition.

Frustrated that their bid for full U.N. membership last year was thwarted by U.S. opposition in theU.N. Security Council, Palestinians have launched a watered-down bid for recognition as a non-member state, similar to the status the Vatican enjoys

…Britain is prepared to back a key vote recognizing Palestinian statehood at the United Nations

    Used to be where you could count on the U.S. Ambassador to veto such asshattery.

    France & Britain just want a designated homeland where they can ship their unwanted surplus Arabs. Hey, they did a similar thing with Israel.

    Until the Vatican starts launching rockets toward Naples, comparisons between the Church and the Palis are, shall we say, inappropriate …..

    LotF ^^ : If The Vatican ever started launching rockets on Naples, or anywhere, they would have to be some pretty-fucking-cool rockets. They would make Jewish rockets look like chump change. They would take Jewish rockets, run a few circles around them, grab them and backhand them a couple of times, and then nuke the crap out of them. And then wonder what was taking so long with the ham sandwich.

    They would be some really fucking cool rockets.
