"1 Thes 5:3 (Destruction) and Dan 11:22 (by a flood) both connected to the Palestinian UN Bid?"


 
US will block Palestinian UN bid
Saturday, September 17, 2011
The United States has threatened to veto the Palestinian application for recognition in the United Nations through the Security Council. The council is composed of the five permanent members, the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China and ten non-permanent, elected members.
In a move that has infuriated Washington and Israel, Palestinian leaders have said they will lodge an application for full membership of the UN or go to the General Assembly for enhanced observer membership on September 23, 2011.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is expected to speak at the United Nations, claims the Palestinian move could harm prospects for peace talks and further destabilize the Middle Eastern region.     
The United Nations vote on the Palestinians’ bid for statehood will be one of the most momentous taken at the world body for decades, and arguably the most dramatic since it approved the creation of Israel in 1947.
