Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

The United Nations voted overwhelmingly Thursday to recognize a Palestinian state, a long-sought victory for the Palestinians but an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the United States.

The resolution upgrading the Palestinians' status to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations was approved by a more than two-thirds majority of the 193-member world body — a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions.  - Yahoo! News

Could a new Palestinian state bring Israel to the ICC? - Yahoo! News UK
If Palestine achieves UN "non-member observer status" on Thursday, it could open the door for the International Criminal Court to investigate crimes committed during the decades-long Israel-Palestinian conflict.
While the possibility of swift prosecutions of Israelis is slim, the spectre of such cases being brought before the ICC has overshadowed the Palestinians' bid.
