UN vote on Palestinian statehood in the offing Palestinian Observer Ambassador Riyad Monsour says that destiny is on the side of the Palestinian people as September approaches. He told the nations of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, as he argued for support for Palestinian statehood -- which he says is nearing reality. The Palestinian Authority has been busy drumming up support for it's bid for statehood. Uruguay reinforced its supportive stance -- which means that every South American state stands in support of Palestine -- except for Columbia -- which has sworn it won't recognize the Palestinian effort. Monsour used every tool at his disposal -- especially the recent UN report that states Palestinian functions are sufficient for statehood -- and that Israel should roll back its "measures of occupation."
Worries dog India statehood demand In the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, calls for a separate state for people in the Telangana region have raised tensions in recent weeks. If a separate state is created, natural resources would have to be divided between Andhra and Telangana. Many farmers say their biggest worry is who will have control of water from the Krishna river, which runs through Telangana and other Andhra regions. The river is a vital source of sustenance for millions of people. Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman reports. [April 3, 2010]
STATEHOOD / FALSEHOOD --- Pono Kealoha STATEHOOD / FALSEHOOD
Palestine turns to UN in battle for statehood Is recognition the road to a republic? With direct talks derailed, Palestinians are looking to the UN as a means to establish statehood. Brazil and Argentina announced this month that they recognise Palestine as an independent state, and other Latin American countries have signalled they will follow suite in the coming months. Now Palestinian leaders are looking to the United Nations for an official declaration recognising Palestine along its 1967 borders. But as Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports from New York, the victory of official statehood could be largely symbolic.

Palestinian Statehood Rep. Capps speaks in reluctant support of H.Res. 1765, which supports a negotiated peace between Israel and Palestine, and opposes a unilateral declaration of independence by Palestinians. Rep.

It is the system initiated by President Ronald Reagan (Republican) in the 1980s, called Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). The Democrats, the ***s in Hollywood, academia, late night comics, and the news media, all ridiculed President Regan saying it will never work and too complicated. They nicknamed it Star Wars and continued their attack upon this system till this day. Then how come the Democrats according them a system that does not work to defend our 50th state, Hawaii? Remember now in the 2008 elections Hawaiians who voted, 72% of them voted for the Democratic Party. The highest Democratic voting percentage out of the 50th states.

Palestinian Statehood - Legality of a Unilateral Declaration The Palestinian Authority committed in the 1995 interim agreement that neither they nor Israel would take a step to change the status of the West Bank before a permanent status agreement. Unilateralism is not allowed by the Oslo Peace Accords. If the Palestinian Authority is in breach of a core commitment, they are breaking international law. They may be hoping that international bodies will approve a declaration of statehood. In January 2009, the PA turned to the International Criminal Court with a declaration that recognized the jurisdiction of the ICC in "territorial Palestine." The Rome Statue that created the ICC declared that requests can be brought only on behalf of States.

Mindaugas III (Part 1: Lithuanian Statehood, The Great Invention of Boat and Paddles) Full-length high quality movie downloadable at blip.tv To recover the secret where the last descendant of the Great Lithuanian king Mindaugas resides - 8 brave men followed the advice of an old boat man Povilas (www.baidariu-nuoma.lt) and paddled down the dangerous Verkne river, meeting killer storks, angry grandmas and their mythical dogs (sumpurni).One night they find the next Lithuanian King Mindaugas III peacefully sleeping like Jesus Child and not having the slightest guess of this great future. Finally they return back home, though now they know the secret. A remark about the environment: polluters and greedy consumers, do not even poke your nose into this little paradise which is left on the earth. But I filmed a scene of crashing Chernobyl-type nuclear reactor in Ignalina, which haven't yet happened but is very probable - you deserve only to live next to danger you have created, and then maybe you will understand the priority of saving natural environment over your greedy consumer-driven desires. However, this is not a protest against the new-type Evolutionary Power Reactors currently built in Olkiluoto, Finland and Cherbourg, France, which are safe and nature friendly.

Kosovo hopes for statehood ruling The International Court of Justice is set to rule on Thursday on the legality of Kosovo's independence from Serbia in 2008, nine years after Nato bombed Serb forces to halt the killing of civilians in the two-year counter-insurgency war between Serbs and ethnic Albanians. The non-binding ruling could affect separatist movements around the world, as well as Serbia's stalled EU membership talks. Without compromise with Serbia, Kosovo's northern border, the shortest route to the European Union market, would remain blocked by its old adversary. Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports.
