    Obama: US doesn't consider Palestine a sovereign state

    The United States believes that Palestine is not a sovereign state yet and therefore cannot become a member of the International Criminal Court.

    US President Barack Obama confirmed this position in telephone talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House press service reported on Monday.

    American officials said earlier that Palestine’s joining the International Criminal Court will lead to further escalation of the situation in the Middle East, because this step will allow Palestinians to bring accusations in war crimes against Israelis. However, Palestine is expected to become a full-fledged member of this organization on April 1, 2015. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has recently confirmed this.

    The UN Security Council earlier rejected a draft resolution planning terms for establishing a Palestinian state. The United States, which enjoys the veto right, voted against it. Eight countries, including Russia, China and Jordan backed the draft resolution. Australia also voted against the act. Other five states, including Britain, Lithuania, Nigeria, South Korea and Ruanda abstained.

    Palestine/Israel conflict can be resolve very easily. All Palestine have to do is stop the terrorists terrorizing Israel. Palestine for all intended purposes is a self govern State. Palestine government and outside forces do not want the conflict to end.

    Not gonna happen, even new borns are brainwashed from the time they are able to barely stand straight on their own to hate Israel and its people. Not to mention the undeterred moral support from rest of ummah around the world.

    Shouldn't happen. Even the kids there are extremists, dreaming of annihilating Israel.

    But of course Indian secular politicians won't talk about it, when the US is involved.

    Whole world crazy about the tiny strip of land. Palestine issue is just overhyped and Palestinian Arabs have far better quality of life compared to people living Asia, Africa and Latin America.
