With today’s historic vote, the UN General Assembly now recognizes Palestine as a nonmember observer state, giving them a huge victory in their quest for statehood. The 130 nations who voted in favor of Palestine voted for freedom and justice. This was a huge blow to the U.S. and Israel who have tried to prevent Palestine from being recognized as a nonmember state.
Congrats to the Palestinian people for this historic vote. I am including a pic where I was at the homeless world cup in Mexico City this year. Here am I with Mel Young, the founder of homeless world cup. I am proudly wearing my Palestine soccer jersey!
