2012 United Nations observer Palestine State Status

This piece of land has the oldest of any human culture and has been invaded by many different peoples, including Ancient Egyptians, Canaanites, Israelites', Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Sunni Arab Caliphates, the Shia Fatimid Caliphate, Crusaders, Ayyubids, Mameluks, Ottomans, the British and modern Israelis and Palestinians.  Just to give you an idea the Roman Republic influenced the region between 63-73 BC in the Third Mithridatic War and splitting the former Hasmonean Kingdom into five districts.

So since anyone can remember and looking back on history this land has been concurred,  sliced and diced.  Now moving ahead in time according to Alexander Scholch, (Former Professor of Modern Middle East Studies at the University of Erlangen in Germany) the population of Palestine in 1850 was about 350,000 inhabitants, 30% of whom lived in 13 towns; roughly 85% were Muslims, 11% were Christians and 4% Jews.

The 1894 Dreyfus Affair in France shocked Jews into realizing they would not be safe from arbitrary antisemitism unless they had their own country. It involved the conviction for treason in November 1894 of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young French artillery officer of Alsatian Jewish descent. Sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly having communicated French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris, Dreyfus was sent to the penal colony at Devil's Island in French Guiana and placed in solitary confinement, where he was to spend almost 5 years. Two years later, in 1896, evidence came to light identifying a French Army major named Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy as the real culprit.

In 1882 and 1914 the immigration of 65,000 European Jews came ashore. This was the beginning of the Zionist movement supported by the British in WW1. The Balfour Declaration was carefully negotiated after centuries of living in a land outside of Israel. The British secured Jerusalem in December 1917. The British moved into the Jordan valley in 1918 and a campaign by the Entente into northern Palestine led to victory at Megiddo in September.

The British were formally awarded the mandate to govern the region in 1922. The non-Jewish Palestinians revolted in 1920, 1929 and 1936. Land was being strip away from local inhabitants (The Palestine's) where for the people of the land could not figure how a European power could decide the use of a non European territory, this is when the first clashes between Jews and Palestinians began. Between 1920 and 1931 a total of 108,825 emergent Jews arrived. When Hitler came into power in Germany additional 175,000 Jews migrated to Palestine.

In 1947, following World War II and the Holocaust, the British Government announced its desire to terminate the Mandate, and the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution recommending partition into an Arab state, a Jewish state and the Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem. The Jewish leadership accepted the proposal, but the Arab Higher Committee rejected it; a civil war began immediately, and the establishment of the State of Israel was declared in 1948.

The 700,000 Palestinians who fled or were driven from their homes were unable to return following the Lausanne Conference, 1949. In the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Israel captured and incorporated a further 26% of the Mandate territory, Jordan captured the region today known as the West Bank and the Gaza Strip was captured by Egypt. In the course of the Six Day War in June 1967, Israel captured the rest of Mandate Palestine from Jordan and Egypt, and began a policy of Israeli settlements. From 1987 to 1993, the First Palestinian Intifada against Israel took place, which included the Declaration of the State of Palestine in 1988 and ended with the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords. In 2000, the Second or Al-Aqsa Intifada began, and Israel built a security barrier. Following Israel's unilateral disengagement plan of 2004, it withdrew all settlers and most of the military presence from the Gaza strip, but maintained control of the air space and coast. In 2012 the State of Palestine replaced the PLO as UN observer following United Nations General Assembly resolution 67/19.

It would seem that the British along with the UN has not really helped the Palestine people. But now with The Permanent Observer Mission of the State of Palestine to the United Nations, this could lead to War Crimes for the Jews.  It would seem to me if you were a people without a country and embarked on foreign land where you were not invited, you should be on your best behavior to be welcomed.  This did not happen and you know something the Jews might be boarding a boat again, might want to learn how to get along with fellow humans, or I guess you could blame The British if you can't fuss up, together you wrote history. 

Update Sunday Dec 2nd 2012:
Israel said to The Palestinian Authority that it is holding its transfer of tax revenue due to the fact that the UN approved the recognition of the Palestinian State. Reason being so they claim, that $200 million is owed to Israel Electric from the authority.  Well once again nothing like putting your best foot forward.
The cash-strapped authority, which exercises limited self-rule in the occupied West Bank, largely depends on the tax money ($100 Million per month) to pay civil servants' salaries, Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior Palestinian official, said Israel was guilty of "piracy and theft" by refusing to hand over the funds.

We, the Palestinian Arab people, based on our right of self-defense and the complete restoration of our lost homeland- a right that has been recognized by international covenants and common practices including the Charter of the United Nations-and in implementation of the principles of human rights, and comprehending the international political relations, with its various ramifications and dimensions, and considering the past experiences in all that pertains to the causes of the catastrophe, and the means to face it.
