Commenting article: UN Recognizes Palestine as Non-member Observer State

As expected, the UN General Assembly has voted Thursday evening to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer State.

Despite the strong opposition by Israel and the US, the efforts of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas culminated in triumph and gave Palestinians an indirect recognition of the sovereignty of their State, the Bulgarian Focus news agency writes Friday, citing Reuters.

Out of 193, 138 members of the assembly voted in favor, 9 – against and 41 nations abstained.

...and though Susan Rice said: "This resolution does not establish Palestine as a state."---I'd reply: sorry, Susan. Sorry, USA+ 8, i.e. + Izrael(any doubt?)+Canada (USA is always right)+Czech Republic (the expected USA credit) + Panama (part of USA) + Pacific island nations: Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau (super independent States in all their moves in UN)........

Congratulations, Palestine.

It's the state of mind of Palestine.
Palestine is only as big as you think it is.
