The UN’s ‘utterly regrettable’ decision to recognize Palestine

Baird hits out at UN’s decision:
Foreign Minister John Baird said today that Canada was “considering all available next steps”
... Palestinians erupted in wild cheers, hugging each other and honking car horns after the vote of 138 in favour, nine against and 41 abstentions.
... Baird said the resolution will set back any two-state negotiations in the Middle East.
... Israel, the United States, Canada and a handful of other members voted against what they saw as a largely symbolic and counterproductive move by the Palestinians...
  Good show Canada!  Most of the rest of the world ... Booooo!

Update 9 (Nov 30): Defiant Israel approves 3,000 new settlements after UN vote

Yo JR I know where your coming from on this issue. I however think it’s a good thing that they get their own state or whatever. Look I’m no fan of Palestinians or the crap they cry and kill for. It’s just that if they get their own state, and Canada supports it 100%, then we can tell them to pound salt when they cry, whine and want to immigrate here for a better life or free health care, pensions, housing, welfare or you know……
They can no longer be refugees and get into Canada on a free pass of liberal compassion just like all the other muslim jihadists that are already here and like the precious little child terrorists piece of shi* omar khadr and his family.

Let’s support these idiots in their own state and let ’em stay there. Peace be upon them bla bla….

I know what you mean. I've got mixed feelings. As it is, Palestine is a dangerous parasitic basket-case that depends entirely on foreign/UN aid to stay afloat. As a supposedly "independent" state not much would change except perhaps they'll be able to import arms more easily. Their main aim of destroying Israel certainly won't change, but once the rockets started to fly again, from an independent Palestine, maybe Israel would feel free to declare all out war and pound them into absolute submission.

The make-believe people now have a make-believe state, go figure. Actually there is already a "Palestinian" state by the name of Jordan.
