Palestinian seat

Why do the Palestinians get special treatment by being considered for a seat on the World Court?

They are a terrorist organization that has never been a nation.

There are many other groups in the world that have similar claims to independence, and don't have an obsession with violence and death.

Tibet should have a seat. They were a sovereign nation for centuries until the brutal occupation by China.

How about the Basque separatists in Spain, or the Catalonian separatists, also in Spain?All these groups are just as much deserving of observer status in the United Nations or a seat on the World Court as the hateful, murderous Palestinians.

There are many other separatist groups in Africa and Asia. Don't they all deserve equal opportunities in the allegedly fair United Nations?
