Israel to Fight PA's UN Bid, Debate What to Do Next

The Foreign Ministry is already working on its strategy for the day after the Palestinian Authority submits its bid for “observer state” status to a vote on Thursday at the United Nations General Assembly. The 193-member world body is expected to approve the revised draft resolution circulated Monday by the PA.

If approved, the resolution would “accord to Palestine Non-member Observer State status in the United Nations, without prejudice to the acquired rights, privileges and role of the Palestine Liberation Organization in the United Nations as the representative of the Palestinian people.”
