Predictably, the UN allows PLO to fly their flag at the assembly

The UN's PLO-worship goes even further as they voted to allow their dictatorial flag to be flown at the general assembly:
Palestinians overwhelmingly won the right to fly their national flag in front of the United Nations headquarters, a symbolic step opposed by Israel and the United States.

The change was made by the UN General Assembly, when a vast majority of member countries voted in favour of a resolution granting what are known as non-member observer states the right to fly their flags alongside member states.

[...] The Israeli ambassador, Ron Prosor, described the resolution as a cynical action. “Make no mistake, the goal of this resolution is a photo op,” Mr Prosor said.

“The Palestinians want to bring together world dignitaries and the media to gather around and watch as Mahmoud Abbas raises a flag. They plan to use the prestige of the UN as a backdrop for this charade.”
All those countries who gave their full backing to the PLO should be ashamed of themselves, and are showing as much disrespect for America as they are for Israel. Ron Prosor also said:
[...] Prosor, in his last speech to the UN General Assembly before returning to Israel after a four year stint as ambassador, took aim at the world body, saying that rather than flying the Palestinian flag, it might as well just wave a “white flag” and surrender its principles.

He argued that not only was the measure procedurally flawed, in that it was brought to a vote without the requisite debate and discussion, but it also allowed the Palestinians to manipulate the institution for its own public relations stunts.

“In my four years, I have seen hypocrisy, I have seen duplicity, and I have seen a triple standard -- one for democracies, one for dictatorships, and a special standard designed only for Israel,” Prosor said. “I thought I had seen everything,” he continued. “But I have to admit, this time, the Palestinian managed to take cynicism to a whole new level. The goal of this resolution is a photo op. The Palestinians want to bring together world dignitaries and the media to gather around and watch as [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] Abu Mazen raises a flag. They plan to use the prestige of the UN as a backdrop for this charade.”

No vote, Prosor said, can turn “empty symbolic gestures into a state.”

Instead of playing along, he said, “the international community must make it clear to the Palestinians that the only way to achieve statehood is through direct negotiations. As long as the Palestinians believe they can achieve their political goals without making concessions, they will continue to avoid taking the difficult decisions needed for peace.”

Prosor took a swipe at the EU, as some of its 28 members voted for the Palestinians, while some others abstained.

Regarding an imaginary resolution brought by the Palestinians declaring the world flat, the EU would “probably try to reach a consensus to abstain on the vote,” Prosor said. “But some EU countries would consider it a matter of principle to declare that the world is, indeed, flat -- if this is how the Palestinians see it.”

The EU's vaunted consensus on foreign policy matters, he said only holds firm when “their consensus is against Israel.” But, he said, tThe principle of “maintaining a holy consensus cannot withstand Palestinian pressure.”
Oh yes, the EU is just as dangerous as the UN. But what principles did the UN ever have? Nothing significant, I'm afraid. And now, they've been totally bankrupt for years.
