Should The U.N. Admit Palestine As A Full Member State?

Israeli military officials say 20 Palestinians were evicted early on Saturday after the
activists tried to set up a cluster of tents near the village of Al-Tiwaneh,
south of the city of al-Khalil (Hebron), 2013.
The conflict between Israel and Palestine has a long history. On November 29, 2012, the General Assembly adopted resolution 67/19 entitled “Status of Palestine in the United Nations” with 138 votes in favor, 9 against and 41 abstentions. The resolution accorded to Palestine non-Member observer State status in the United Nations, marking the first time that the General Assembly considered Palestine to be a State.

After 20 years of failed talks with Israel, can the international community be the only path left to a two-state solution, or have the Palestinians set the peace process back by bypassing negotiations?


For admitting Palestine: Mustafa Barghouthi, former Palestinian National Authority Presidential Candidate and Daniel Levy, former Israeli Government Negotiator & Senior Fellow, New America Foundation

Against admitting Palestine: Dore Gold, former Israeli U.N. Ambassador & Advisor to PM Netanyahu and Aaron David Miller, former U.S. Mideast Negotiator, Advised Republican and Democratic Secretaries of State
