Why is it a problem Palestinians have access to the court. If Israel is innocent it has nothing to worry about. Their effort to do everything they can to keep Palestine from having a voice actually makes Israel look guilty. If they don't have a case against Israel then nothing will come of it. This will give them an oppurtunity to express greivences they have. Maybe the extremists among them won't laucnch rockets at Israel if they see they are finally being listened to. Maybe not, I don't know. But this much I do know. Continuing to silence them will only add fuel to the fire.

Yeah. It's fine that some terrorists can shoot thousands of rockets over their border, hoping to kill women and children, so they can be "listened to".
How would you feel if someone broke into your house and murdered your wife and kids, then claimed they just wanted to be "listened to".
We need to make sure such jerks are being "listened to" by God - in person.

Wrong, again, anon. If Palestinians wanted peace, all they needed to do is stop attacking Israel and recognize their right to exist. Israel has offered them a two state solution. All these parasitical palestinians want to do is kill every Jew, and destroy the nation of Israel.

The West Bank and the PA have stayed out of conflicts with Israel while pursuing nationalism.

Their land continues to be annexed by Israeli settlers regardless.

The Israeli solution is increasingly looking like a 1 state solution with a permanent unrecognized underclass of people isolated in enclaves at their mercy.

Have they agreed to the two-state solution? What gives them any more right to the west bank than the Jews? Was it the PA or the Israelis who took the west bank when they were attacked?

"Have they agreed to the two-state solution?" Yes, with final details to be determined in negotiations.

"What gives them any more right to the west bank than the Jews?" They were living there first. And the UN resolution that created Israel and called for a Palestinian state. That they lost a war to Israel means their land is currently occupied, but is still their land.

"Was it the PA or the Israelis who took the west bank when they were attacked?" Israel occupies the entire land.

Why do we still support the UN?

Despite recent conflict in Gaza, which erupted after Israel decided to no longer tolerate the constant barrage of rocket fire across its border, the UN General Assembly has decided to recognize Palestine as a state. This afternoon, it granted Palestine “non-member observer state” status.

Doing nothing to ease US and Israel’s apprehension regarding the vote, UN Secretary General sent out a mistaken tweet urging a one-state solution:
