Yes it is! Palestine is recognised by most (135 out of 196) of the world's countries, not far short of the 160 that recognise Israel, and way more than recognise Kosovo (109) or Taiwan (22, although to be fair, far more recognise Taiwan in an unofficial way to appease China). Palestine's status at the UN is similar to that of Vatican City and, until 1992, Switzerland.

Palestine is not country because it only got to sit in during the united nations but its not yet a country. Israel is not recognized as much as palestine because countries in the middle east are ignorant and corrupt

By the way Jery928 Wikipedia is not always correct because anyone can write whatever they want.

I agree. The recognition of Palestine as a country by 135 world countries doesn't require us to look up Wikipedia to find that out.

Another excellent quiz! And I totally agree with your stance on Palestine; politics aside, fair is fair.
