  1. This is a VERY strong ruling for Palesrine and the equivalent of a “diplomatic” FU to Israel, which is a good thing. No mention of Israel’s so-called “right to defend itself’ or any of the other zionist lies we’re constantly bombarded with.

    Then again, EVERYTHING about Israel is a lie, broken promise or terrorist depredation, a moral and legal obscenity with no justification whatsoever.

    It’s nice to see the UN tell those filthy scumsucking reptiles to eff off, even if they did it rather politely and in veiled legalese.

  2. UN is a criminally formed Rothschild terrorist force & successor to the failed global coup called “League of Nations”. One of UN’s original goals was to establish the private Rothschild terrorist mercenary force called Israel, and to criminally grant it phony legitimacy and facilitate its mass-murders for a hundred years:

  3. It’s all good. Until now, the PA (Palestinian Authority) was a body of the State of Israel. All its taxes were collected automatically through the usual computerized system implemented under Israeli Administration & then transferred to the PA, subject to the approval of the Minister of Finances. Now, Palestine may declare its financial & fiscal independence. It will have no problem to find backing financial institutions among the countries that supported the UN resolution. Israel will not be able to fight this administratively.
