The US, Apartheid Israel and 6 US lackey states - Australia, Canada, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, and Tuvalu – invite comprehensive global Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against their citizens, institutions, goods and services by voting against a UN General Assembly motion, passed with 119 in favour and 45 abstentions, allowing for the raising of the State of Palestine flag at the UN Headquarters and offices.
UN press release (10 September 2015): “The world body adopted the resolution on raising the flags of non-member observer States at the United Nations (document A/69/L.76) by a recorded vote of 119 in favour to 8 against (Australia, Canada, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Tuvalu, United States), with 45 abstentions. By the terms of that text, the General Assembly decided that the flags of non-member observer States maintaining permanent observer missions at Headquarters shall be raised at Headquarters and United Nations offices following the flags of the Members States of the Organization” .
Before dealing with the moral bankruptcy of the “No” voters, a short history lesson is required about the ancient land of Palestine, US-backed Apartheid Israel and the racist Zionists' ongoing Palestinian Genocide.
The names Philistia, Palestina and
The shocking dirnensions of the Palestinian Genocide by genocidally racist Zionists and
(1) Since 1936 there have been 2 million Palestinian deaths from violence (0.1 million) or imposed deprivation (1.9 million );
(2) There are 7 million Palestinian refugees and all of the 12 million Palestinians are excluded from all or part of
(3) Of 12 million Palestinians (half of them children), 6 million are forbidden to even step foot in their own country, 4.3 million are held hostage with zero human rights under Israeli guns in the Gaza Concentration Camp (1.8 million) or in ever-dwindling West Bank Bantustan ghettoes (2.5 million), and 1.7 million live as Third Class citizens as Israeli Palestinians under Nazi-style Apartheid Israeli race laws;
(4) 90% of
(5) GDP per capita is US$2,900 for Occupied Palestinians as compared to US$37,700 for Apartheid
(6) Through imposed deprivation, each year Apartheid
(8) Occupied Palestinians are deprived of essentially all human rights by Apartheid
(9) Nuclear terrorist, serial war criminal, genocidally racist, democracy-by-genocide Apartheid
(10) US-backed Apartheid Israel in its genocidal treatment of the Palestinians ignores numerous UN General Assembly Resolutions and UN Security Council Resolutions, the UN Genocide Convention, the Geneva Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Rights of the Child Convention, the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and many other aspects of International Law;
(11) Apartheid Israel has attacked 12 countries and occupied 5 with 1950-2005 avoidable deaths from deprivation in countries neighbouring Apartheid Israel totalling 24 million ;
(12) Apartheid Israel and its racist Zionist agents have subverted and perverted Western democracies with appalling mortality consequences: 17 million avoidable deaths each year globally and 1,500 million such deaths since 1950 (this including 600 million Muslims), this carnage being linked to Zionist perversion of US aid and foreign policy ; 13 million Muslim deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in the Zionist-promoted, post-1990 US War on Muslims [5-7]; 11 million Muslims deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in the US War on Terror instigated by the US Government's false-flag 9-11 atrocity (that may well have involved Apartheid Israel); and 23 million American preventable deaths since 9-11 inescapably linked to Zionist-beholden US Governments spending $7 trillion on killing millions of Muslims abroad instead of keeping millions of Americans alive at home [8, 9].
The UN General Assembly finally recognized the State of Palestine in 2012. The United Nations General Assembly resolution 67/19 was for the admission of

Analysis of the “No” voting pariah states.
The “No” voting pariah states fall into 2 categories (A) wealthy, serial invader, serial war criminal, climate criminal, genocidally racist, violent, exceptionalist and grossly human rights-abusing states founded on the genocide of the Indigenous inhabitants (Australia, Canada, Apartheid Israel, United States) and (B) impoverished, acutely climate change-threatened, US client Pacific Island micro-states (the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Tuvalu) .
The US, Apartheid Israel and 6 craven, US lackey states - Australia, Canada, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, and Tuvalu - all voted against a UN General Assembly motion, passed with 119 in favour, and 45 abstentions, allowing for the raising of the State of Palestine flag at the UN Headquarters and at UN offices.
The US, Canada, Apartheid Israel, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau (together with the Czech Republic, Nauru and Panama) also voted against UN recognition of the State of Palestine that was overwhelmingly passed by the UN General Assembly in 2012 (genocidally racist , US lackey, pro-Zionist and pro-Apartheid Israel Australia, then under a Labor Government containing a small rump of decent human beings, in this instance adopted the cowardly and unprincipled stance of Abstaining).
The US lackeys the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, and Tuvalu by supporting Apartheid Israel are complicit in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide but are themselves facing a Pacific Island Genocide, a Marshall Islands Genocide, a Micronesian Genocide, a Palauan Genocide and a Tuvaluan Genocide through sea level rise with their climate criminal, fellow Apartheid Israel supporters Australia, Canada and the US being disproportionately responsible for these looming genocidal atrocities . Indeed the pro-coal, pro-gas, effective climate change denialist, pro-Zionist, pro-war and US lackey Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott, disgraced himself recently by laughing heartily when his Minister of Immigration made a tasteless and offensive joke about the sea lapping at the doors of climate change-threatened Pacific Islanders .
