Supporting quotations

Victor Kattan. "The case for UN recognition of Palestine." The Electronic Intifada. June 13th, 2011: "If, in addition, Palestine became a member of the UN, it would be able to draft, propose, and table its own resolutions at the UN and vote on them and others. Palestine could also conceivably even be elected as a non-permanent member of the Security Council one day."


"Palestinian Statehood." New York Times Editorial. September 11, 2011: "Even the more modest General Assembly vote, which the Palestinians are sure to win, would pave the way for them to join dozens of U.N. bodies and conventions, and could strengthen their ability to pursue cases against Israel at the International Criminal Court."
