Palestininian President, Appeal to U.N. Security Council

| No Comments

The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, will appear before the United Nations Security Council to appeal for the membership of a Palestinian state, according to Ethan Bronner of The New York Times.
The United States has vowed to veto the bid that it sees as unilateral. President Abbas said that his plan will allow for negotiations with Israel once Palestine is a recognized state.
According to Joe Lauria of the Wall Street Journal, appealing to the Security Council poses a significant threat to the Palestinian bid. Lauria said that an appeal to the General Assembly for status as an observer-state would encounter fewer obstacles and still be symbolic for the Palestinian cause.
