Is there any justification in blocking Palestinian bid in the UN?

"Palestinian leaders in the West Bank will ask the UN to upgrade Palestine's status by the end of the month.
The request to admit Palestine as a "non-member observer state" is being made despite US and Israeli opposition."

What argument do people think can honestly be made to justify refusing this? The settlements may be an issue along with militant attacks and territorial disputes but nations have been admitted into the UN after far worse.

I'd take the UN over a 3rd world war any day.

Have to understand Israel wields an absurd control over international politics. If Palestine is recognized as a sovereign nation Israel will have to answer for crimes against humanity.

It dissuades certain other groups from claiming statehood.

Given the 'Palestinians' penchant for joining extremist groups to achieve their ends I am not in favor.

Hamas has on numerous occasions said they will never recognize Israel as a sovereign state.

Issues with women's rights, ethnic and religious equality, homophobia, and so forth all make the case that a
Palestinian state should not be recognized until they get their asses off of their heads.

It doesn't matter that currently recognized states do the same or worse. The fact is we, as a global community, should have at least some standards.

Plus, fuck the UN.:iconbirdplz:

"Issues with women's rights, ethnic and religious equality, homophobia, and so forth all make the case that a
Palestinian state should not be recognized until they get their asses off of their heads." - The very same argument could have been used to justify the British aggression in the American War - "just imagine the carnage (The US Civil War) that could have been avoided by 'pacifying' the 'patriots".

On a tangent, yes, the UN is a dummy for US.. Very little good seems to come of it..
