This vote isn't about Israel, it is about Palestine and it's right to exist.

Prime Minister Netanyahu was elected in the say way Trump was elected, in a right wing wave. Both can be replaced, too.

Israel has a great deal to be grateful for when the a unified global community cut out a portion of biblical historic land became Israel. Now, nearly seven decades later Israel has expanded it's boundaries multiple times, caused the organization of Hamas, saw a revolutionary icon die and now because of it's ideology the Palestinians are suppose to disappear off the map. That disappearance is genocide.

Palestine is allowed to exist. The Palestinian people need a homeland no different than Israelis did 68 years ago. The vote in the United Nations is long overdue, with the USA standing with the Palestinians to prevent genocide of their people.

Israel full well knows genocide is more than wiping out an ethnic people, it is the removal of borders, the defeat of culture and the calculated end of an exclusive ethnicity. Israel should be grateful for the resolution of the United Nations as it ends the demands of settlers and radicals.

Mr. Trump cannot reverse this resolve either. No doubt a different resolve to benefit the extremists of Israel will be brought before the Security Council, but, it will be defeated and the USA will stand alone backing genocide of Palestine.
