    Yes. Since 2010/2011 I think, by UN mandate.

    The Arab State was supposed to be Cisjordania.

    I think it was voted on by member nations. I don't know much else about it mind.

    That was definitely NOT a shot at you Martin...just the uselessness of the UN...and I can't wait until the day some politicians finally kick that anti-American organization out of my country.

    Any takers out there who want to host them?

    Oh...they're fucking hopeless. I couldn't agree more.

    Can't admit to knowing much about military stuff but I know that if I was in a position, armed and loaded for bare and some smelly, bearded, Serbian cunts were dragging kids off to execute them, that I'd shoot them in the face and face the consequences.

    Useless bastards.

    Based on what I can find:, Wiki has it as a de jure state:

    I'm thinking that the Israelis aren't giving up control any time soon.

    I don't think Palestine was admitted as a full-fledged UN Member (US would veto that). However Palestine was admitted in 2011 as the 195th Member of UNESCO, which is one of the UN's sub-organisations. The US cut funding, then withdrew (along with Israel) from UNESCO.

    Only thing the UN has pulled off was the Berlin airlift and then only in a quasi way, pretty much everything else it has touched has turned to shit, case point Bosnia, that was a complete disaster when the UN were in charge, so many innocent deaths, no scratch that Murders, are on the UN's hand, that is why ISAF took over, and then finally NATO, we at least then tried to do something and not just sit and watch as villages were wiped out in front of our very eyes.

    What about Berlin for a good while after WW2?

    Imagine what would have happened if the East Germans (supported by the Russians) would have "claimed" West-Berlin to be included to their capital or the West Germans (supported by the Western Allies) would have "claimed" East-Berlin and moved the West-German captial from Bonn back to Berlin at the same time?

    So moving the Embassy shouldn't be a big deal.

    Oh no! Trumpy has turned Muslims against us. They were so friendly before.

    Next thing you know he'll be telling us London is the Capitol of the UK when everyone knows it's Mecca,
