The UN General Assembly has voted to upgrade Palestinians’ diplomatic status to a “non-member observer state,” thus implicitly recognizing a Palestinian state. This comes despite strong opposition from the US and Israel.

The Palestinian bid has been upheld with 138 votes in favour, nine against and 41 abstentions.

I'm torn. I'm glad they get recognition, but I despise the UN.

Biere.

I thought so too when I first heard it, but there seems to be very little fanfare.

While certainly not out of the realm of possible Jolly R, it strikes me as contrived spoofing of the playbook to another nefarious end, like divide and conquer perhaps.
