This request should serve as a wakeup call to the United Nations and to the West that the Palestinians are not going to give up their legitimate rights. They are instead saying enough is enough. This vote has represented the first time in a long time when the Palestinians have been able to unite. Rallies in the street are proof that the PA has gone to the U.N. with the approval of the Palestinians. That should come as no surprise. They have waited 65 years to see any real change. That is more than anybody could ask for. Over the years they have given concession after concession. Ultimately that has to end. There is nothing more to concede. The Palestinians must be allowed to move forward with dignity. Hopefully, this vote will be a crucial reminder that there are millions of people suffering because of the inaction surrounding Palestine and the supposed peace process.
