What Happened to the UN Drive to Create Palestine?


It wasn’t very many days ago that the world’s attention was focused on the then upcoming United Nations fall session at which Palestine was supposed to be created by the UN. The mainstream media was focused on the move by Hamas and other Middle Eastern enemies of Israel to obtain a binding UN Resolution carving the State of Palestine out of the State of Israel.

Prime Minister Netanyahu was shuttling to the U.S. to meet with our President, who was not so subtly twisting Israel’s arm to get it to agree to the land takeover. Talk show hosts were arguing over how and when the UN would create the world’s newest nation.

It appeared that everything was in place – the Palestinians had ignored purported requests that they not push for the UN to act. The UN appeared to be ready to act. The media were poised to celebrate the bold move by the UN stealing land away from a sovereign nation to create a nation that never was a nation. So what happened?

Imagine if any other group of people in the world were seriously suggesting that they could take land away from an existing nation, because they wanted to – because they wanted to form a new country. Any other nation but Israel would cry out for help to ward off the interlopers, and the world would come to its assistance. Is that what happened to stop the drive for a new State of Palestine? Did world pressure kill the land grab?

Far from it. The European Union, the Vatican, the Muslim nations and some Latin American nations were all united in calling on the UN to do what the Palestinians asked for – to take from one nation to start up another. World pressure was at a fever pitch for it to happen.

So, again, what happened to put a pin in the balloon of formation of the State of Palestine?

Politics. American election politics. American 2012 Presidential election politics.

World News Daily has reported what happened behind the scenes:“The Obama administration told the Palestinian Authority it cannot significantly help advance a Palestinian state until after the 2012 presidential elections, a top PA official told WND.

The official, however, said the U.S. will press for a Palestinian state quickly if President Obama is re-elected.


"The main message we received from the U.S. is that nothing will happen in a serious way before the 2012 elections," said the official. The PA official said Obama "will not accept the Palestinian request of a state at the (U.N.) Security Council and cannot help on the ground for now. We were told to wait for Obama's reelection, and that before then nothing serious will happen for a state," the official continued. "But after the reelection, the U.S. said the schedule will be short to reach a Palestinian state."


The upset election of Republican Bob Turner to replace retiring Congressman Anthony Weiner in New York sent enough shivers through the White House that the Obama Administration pulled the plug on the Palestinian plan to create a new nation in 2011. How the President was mistreating Israel was a major issue in the special election campaign. The district that had not elected a GOP candidate since 1923. Once the results were in the vote totals spelled an end to a new State of Palestine, that is until after next year’s Presidential election. If the President is elected to a Second Term, he can be expected to keep his promise to dismember the land and take from Israel to give to the new nation of Palestine. We are all warned accordingly.
