Listen, there's a difference between facts and opinions. In this case, Palestine being a country is an opinion, not a fact. You do not get to decide if a territory fulfills all the requirements to be a State; I would say that everything points to Palestine not fulfilling these requirements, so I think it is a little stubborn to just affirm that it is a country, without at least giving an explanation stating which criteria is used to make such affirmation.

which is probably why it's already filled in on the quiz and you don't have to guess it. There's no way to do it where everybody's happy but this is probably the best compromise.

But apparently, YOU get to decide what those requirements are and whether or not Palestine fulfills them?
reply

Apr 20, 2015

The requirements have been determined by the international community, in the 1933 Montevideo Convention; it is precisely the international community which gets to decide whether or not Palestine fulfills these requirements, and since major world powers like USA, UK, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, and Australia have yet to recognize Palestine as a sovereign country, and the UN has refused to accept them as a member, everything points to Palestine NOT being a country rather than the opposite. I don't get to decide anything, but I also don't get to impose my opinion.

Yes, it did (8 'yes' votes, two 'no', and five abstentions). The vote was symbolic anyway as the USA had already indicated it would use its veto to block a positive outcome. The lack of democracy in the UN is its biggest failure, if you ask me. Allowing a handful of countries to block any vote that doesn't go their way is a peculiar way to run an organisation which is supposed to represent the entire world.

Tell that to the vast majority of countries in the world who do, in fact, believe it exists and have indeed recognised it as such. Maybe they're just unaware of your opinion, and will change their stance once they know that you settled the issue once and for all?

"vast majority" is a really bad overstatement.

Countries that do not recognize Palestine include 1st and 3rd world countries from every continent. Those within the USA's sphere of influence and those outside it. And together represent more than a quarter of the 196 countries on JetPunk's CotW quiz. Most nations that have any sort of concept of civic responsibility toward the world do not recognize that the PNA is the government of Palestine (which is what people really mean when they say "recognize Palestine") because they understand that this is not a reflection of reality and giving credence to a myth is dangerous and irresponsible. These countries include the USA, the UK, Germany, Australia, Japan, Denmark, The Netherlands, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, South Korea, France, Austria, Belgium and others.

Countries that DO recognize the PNA's authority over "Palestine" fall mostly into one of three categories. Many are Muslim countries that hate Jews and believe the false narrative that foreign Jews stole native Muslim lands. Many are African countries that feel they have suffered from colonialism in the past and have now bought into the false narrative that Israel is the product of European colonialism. And a few are countries that simply have a problem with the USA and are trying to give the proverbial finger to America but don't give a rat's patoot about the people of Palestine. This list includes such civilized and forward-thinking places as Iran, North Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Uganda, Syria, Afghanistan, Congo (both of them!), Kuwait, Egypt, Cuba, China, Niger, and so on.

Funny, I seem to recall you commenting previously about how the United States should be ashamed of being on the same list as some of these countries when it came to still using the death penalty.

That's a little disingenuous, Kal. Of the countries that don't yet recognise Palestine, many have stated that they recognise there should be a Palestine but they do not yet recognise that it exists, mainly for the reason you gave, ie they don't recognise that the PNA is in full control of both parts of the 'country'. For example, both houses of the Irish parliament unanimously voted for recognition, but Ireland does not yet formally recognise the country of Palestine, Japan accepts Palestinian nationality, but does not yet recognise the State of Palestine, and so on. Also, New Zealand can't be placed in the 'does not recognise' basket, since they don't formally recognise anyone, they simply imply recognition through their relations.

How am I being disingenuous? I agree with what you just said. The United States would also like to see a workable two-state solution that would lead to two stable, peaceful, preferably democratic states existing side-by-side in harmony and cooperation. They would like nothing more. They've been endeavoring toward that goal for decades. But wishing for something to be true doesn't mean it is true.

Israel has tried and tried and tried and tried and tried again to get to a stable two-country solution, and five times it's been rejected. Yet now, Palestine is being established as a country without any agreement from Israel, which just goes to show the ridiculousness of it. Everyone - even Israel - would love a two-country system, but the supporting countries will only go with the two-country system if Israel doesn't support it.
