"In 24 hours the UN Security Council will meet, and the world has an opportunity to embrace a new proposal that could turn the tide on decades of failed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks: UN recognition of the state of Palestine.
Over 120 nations from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America have already endorsed this initiative. But the the Canadian government opposes it and wants to proceed with US led failed talks, even though Israel's far right wing government is ignoring President Obama's calls to stop building settlements and draw up a map for two nations. Only a massive public push now could tip the government to back this momentous opportunity to move towards Palestinian self determination and an end to this bloody conflict.
This bold new initiative could be the best opportunity to jump start a resolution of the conflict. Let's ensure Canada supports it, and make clear that citizens across the country support this legitimate, non-violent, diplomatic proposal. Sign the petition and send this to everyone:

I have signed this petition and also tweeted it. I am a strong supporter of the right for the Palestinian people to have a sovereign state. Thanks for posing this link!
The Muslims there want a nation... tell them to move to Arabia and found a new one.

Liberty and Justice for all--that's what my country is supposed to stand for. Shame we have lost it.
Well... I like to give you all, the Leant Leftists and Progressives, the benifit of the doubt and assume you have a lil more intelligence than my study wall.
I mean... I equate speaking to you all, as to repeating my dog's, or two year old's name, over and over.
But hey... you all know yourselves better than I.
So a wall it is.
Senator McCarthy declares he will go after 'all the Communists in Hollywood" after getting a rejection letter from the Producers of "The Munsters", saying he was to old to play 'Eddie'
If you don't know mcCarthy had nothing to do with hollywood black-listings or hearings, Greek... then you are not so well informed.
Hint, think HUAC.
OMG!!! The new Eddie Munster is Eric Cantor!!
It depends where in Palestine you will be staying. If you are going to Ramallah area or Hebron area, the weather will be very pleasant. On certain nights you might need a light jacket.

In a 90 minute 'debate', neither Joe Biden nor Sarah Palin even once used the dreaded P-Word. Both candidates made a point of declaring their unquestioned support for their no.1 ally and friend in the Middle East, Israel. Biden, once only, allowed for the possibility of a "2-state...
