Yesterday’s General Assembly Vote can be historic. The US & Canada, the clumsy allies that they are stood by while the world …
What exactly did the world do? Will we remember the vote next year? Do you remember the UNESCO vote the year before?
I hope that this vote gives the Palestanians momentum. I hope that it gives Israel a warning.
But hope is a thing I’ve decided to do without, as much as possible, and so I will simply sit on the sidelines and observe.
What people, and the media, forget to mention however, is the historic position IRAN took on the issue. Granted that an Iranian UN representative’s views can’t be taken for a significant policy shift, given how layered the Iranian leadership structure is. It also comes when the Iranian establishment’s relationship with Hamas is less than rosy. But Fatah had Hamas’s blessing in taking the vote to the General Assembly floor.
However, when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s words are MISTRANSLATED regarding Israel, Western media, political establishments, etc EXPLODE. But when in a HISTORIC move, Iran votes for a Fatah led initiative, OPENLY supports the Saudi Peace Plan (which directly acknowledges the state of Israel) … not a word is said. Hardly a sentence is uttered. Not a single fuck is given.
Why the complete and total media blackout surrounding it? They’re not, gulp, biased now, huh?
