UN recognizes Palestinian State in Historic Vote - NN

UN recognizes Palestinian State in Historic Vote - NN | Mapmakers | Scoop.it
The UN General Assembly has voted to upgrade Palestinians’ diplomatic status to a “non-member observer state,” thus implicitly recognizing a new Palestinian state. This comes despite strong opposition from Israel and the US.
“It's a great feeling to have a state, even if in name only,” a civil servant Mohammed Srour told in Ramallah. “The most beautiful dream of any man is to have an independent state, particularly for us Palestinians who have lived under occupation for a long time.''
Peter Hoeve's insight:

These are historic times. Over the last couple of years we've seen major changes in the political arena. Changing borders, changing leaders, and now even new countries on the rise. It's time to welcome these changes and build a new world order around them. New changes bring new chances for peace. Let's celebrate this week's wisdom of the UN.

   This means that our workforce and economy will be reshaped by the experiences and expectations that these 'Super Empowered Hopeful' Gamers will bring out of their games.

   She distinguises the 4 Core States of the SEH Individuals:

- Urgent Optimism - to rise upon the Challenge; 

- Social Fabric - and the sense of understanding other Gamers;

- Blissful Productivity - and Hapiness about our Achievements;

- Epic Meaning - and Mastery of our Results.
