Against adversity and arrogance, Palestinians have dusted off a Cold War era recourse known as “Uniting for Peace”, by means of which, two-thirds majority of the General Assembly can overrule the Security Council; however, it would only be a moral triumph, since the General Assembly does not have the mandate to bestow UN membership to a new Palestinian state.
Despite of all obstacles, this is an indication that the world demands justice for Palestine and sooner than later the Security Council will have to vote for the creation of a long overdue Palestinian state.
¡Viva Palestina Libre!
