    Video of the moment the UN voted overwhelmingly to fly the Palestinian flag.

    The belligerant manner of the Israeli representative's response late in this short video speaks volumes.

    Don't need one because former Confederates can vote in the USA.

    When I joined RHP, it did not offer members the choice of playing under the flag of Palestine.
    I initiated a campaign that made it possible for Palestinians here to play under their flag.

    You may be right but why is that bad? In 1980, the world’s seventeen established Marxist-Leninist states presided over roughly 1.5 billion subjects (out of a total world population of approximately 4.4 billion). At that apogee, over a third of humanity lived under regimes that professed the “communist” intent: and the encompassed populations represented a tremendous variety of cultures, ethnicities, levels of material attainment, and demographic structures. https://www.aei.org/publication/population-aspects-of-communist-countries/

    You probably intend the term "communist" to include Western states with socialist policies, which means most of northern Europe and perhaps some of LAtin America. Add in the 23% of the world's population that is Muslim, without taking away too much for overlap (muslim communists) and you have a plausible basis to argue that the united nations would not be doing its job if it did not have significant influence from the categories you suggested.

    Now those large population figures have to be corrected further to recognise that there is a mix of very large and very small states. On the one hand, the USA, which is our last hope against the ultimate degeneration of humanity into a muslim communist theocratic atheistic tyranny, is very large, so its big population has to share just the one vote for just one country. On the other hand, its large size gives it the economic and military muscle to bribe or bully sufficient countries to get its way when it matters and indeed, the size of its contribution to UN costs also gives the USA significant leverage. And besides, the UN cannot do much when the US exercises its veto.

    So fear not. On the one hand, democratic forces naturally and corrrectly allocate influence in the UN to people of all nations and creeds, while the USA - under the finger of its large corporations - can force the UN to ignore their democratic influence when it suits their interests. Your billionaires can sleep peacefully.

    I have not watched your video. Would that be an American Muslim Jew-hater and out of all those labels, which one chimes most with bigotry and racism? Well let's judge what we know about Americans by considering your contributions to this forum. You are a racist bigot and you spew increasingly foul insults in this forum against Muslims and Palestinians. Does that make you a typical American? Does this student make a typical Muslim? I am guessing the answer to both is "no". You have descended to a pit of vicious abuse that is no longer representative of Americans. You are just a miserable old git seeking attention on a pathetic internet forum with a tiny audience and no site moderation in place to kick you off and make space for some decent human beings to engage in more interesting debate. You are just a cut price, poor quality troll who has found a little niche for your madness to froth without restraint.
