(Newser) – On last night’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart summarized the US response to Palestine seeking UN membership: To win a seat, “all you need to do is settle your differences with Israel!” Though a “spelling change” could also help--instead of “Palestine,” how about “Palestein”? Stewart likened Palestine’s membership effort to joining a housing co-op: The Palestinians are facing President Obama, “that one hardass on the co-op board who always shoots people down.”
