PA's New Plan For Statehood
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
The Palestinians are still going to try for UN recognition at the General Assembly. The new session begins on September 15.
But there is a new twist to their plan. The Palestinians have changed their strategy and now they want to embarrass the United States. They want to go to the Security Council and make certain that the US will use its veto.
Afterwards, the Palestinians will go to the General Assembly and ask for recognition without the Security Council. That recognition will have no legal authority, but it will be very well received.
The PA will have accomplished two goals. Their first success will be embarrassing the United States. The second will be achieving their political ends in the General Assembly where the vast majority of the member states will support the declaration.
As Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said in his cabinet briefing: The General Assembly could declare that the world is flat and there is nothing that we can do about it.
