UN Sec Council to meet on Jerusalem declaration Friday

Eight permanent Security Council members, including Britain and France, have convened a UN Security Council meeting for Friday in the wake of the US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. They are joined by non-permanent members Bolivia, Egypt, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, Britain and Uruguay. UK Prime Minister Theresa May opposed the Trump decision, saying: “We believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region. The British Embassy is based in Tel Aviv and we have no plans to move it.” The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is expected to address the meeting. He said earlier that Jerusalem is a final status issue and must be resolved through direct negotiations.  Germany said that it “does not support” Trump’s decision. The European Union expressed “serious concern.”

    Palestinians interests have been donaldized to the most unbearable extend.
    In the light of the tragic set back generated by president Abu Barron al Amreeki, we shall address the United Nations Secretary general António Guterres for due restoration of the Palestinian pride.
    We imperatively ask the UN for no less than complete accord to move the UN Headquarters from New York City to Jerusalem in the following months.
    Let this unique gesture be remembered in the history as the Abbass Supersmart Solution! With the undestandig that only the arab people have the right to have a tatoo with this title anywhere they wish, in both English and Arabic, of course.

    Not “Eight permanent Security Council members”, this is an error I think, there are only 6 permanent members: China, France, Israel, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

    This matter is NOT up the United Nations. ANY nation state can recognize any other nation state and put an embassy in that state’s capital. The UN has no jurisdiction in the matter.
    The Palestinians HAVE NO NATION STATE. Therefore, they cannot be recognized by as a nation state. They cannot recognize an existing nation state; not the USA, China, Russia, or Israel. The cannot claim anywhere (Jerusalem, East Jerusalem, Gaza City or elsewhere) as their capital because they are not a nation state.

      To maintain peace in the region, export all Palestinians to Iraq. Israel will have peace forever. No more Palestine. Let the Arabs take care of their own and old Palestine becomes New Israel.

    The UN should be abolished as they give tacit acceptance to genocide in the Muslim-Muslim terror war which has taken hundreds of thousands of lives in the Middle East and North Africa while they work their UN propaganda campaign against Jews because the Islamic religion is all about Jew hatred and the UN is a Muslim-dominated hate club.
