If you learned geography just after WWII: - All of Africa except for Liberia, South Africa, Ethiopia, and Egypt was colonized => 50 new nations since WWII - The 15 Soviet republics were part of the USSR => total 65 - 12 Oceanian countries (essentially, all except for Australia and NZ) => total 77 - French colonies in SE Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia) => total 80 - a long list: Jordan, Israel, Philippines, Pakistan, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, SK, NK, (Taiwan?), Malaysia, Singapore, Syria, Maldives, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Timor-Leste, Brunei, Yemen => 102/103 depending on whether or not you include Taiwan. So if samiam was in school in 1946, yes, half of today's nations were not nations back then. his username says 1955 so maybe he was born in 1955, which might make his point invalid, but the message is still the same: independence in our world is HIGHLY DYNAMIC AND CHANGES QUICKLY.

Interesting that there are pages full of debate about Palestine (which is an observer member to the UN), but hardly anyone even blinks for Kosovo (recognized by less countries, not even observer to the UN), Taiwan (only recognized by a handful, no member of the UN) or even the Vatican (also observer member of the UN, but recognized by many). I do understand the sentiment, but some of the argumentation is very inconsistent. Why can't the answer be "JetPunk simply accepts those countries recognized by the USA", which in practice is how this site functions. This would end any debate on whether or not an entity is a country according to anyone's own interpretation.

It's easy to understand why.
#1 and most importantly, Mufti Amin al-Husseini was very successful in transforming his own personal political and territorial ambitions into a pan-Arabic and pan-Islamic cause; the racial/religious turf war of a million people became the central focus uniting and defining over a billion people worldwide, and those billion+ people have done a good job of transforming their partisan support of their racial/religious brothers into a cause du jour popular with billions more who do not share their ethnic or religious affiliations.
Serbia has had no such figure and has found no such success in popularizing their own partisan narrative. The only people that care about Serbia or Kosovo are the 11 million people living in Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania.

#2- Kosovo actually is a fully sovereign entity in control of its own borders and contiguous territory with a unified centralized undisputed functioning government. Palestine is not.

As to your second point... the arguments people make in the comments section and the position that JetPunk takes are not necessarily related. (once in a while Quizmaster will adopt a certain stance simply to avoid angry comments- I've seen him do that a number of times before) But Dan tries his best to adhere to reality and leave politics aside. It's not only about who the United States recognizes. If it were, then Taiwan would not be included on the countries of the world quiz. The USA has not formally recognized Taiwan since 1979.
