Palestine joins UNESCO and the United States goes wild! Part II

Israel and the US have no moral justification to continue resisting Palestine’s bid for statehood. Israel’s concerns against the Palestine Liberation Organization as a terrorist organization are no more valid, especially after both had exchanged letters of recognition as far back as 1993.

Ghana prides herself on being global leader in seeking independence, but so many of her offspring (Ghanaians) feel alienated from our infant -democratic process now.
