Palestinians See U.N. Bid as Their Most Viable Option

“The Palestinian decision to apply for full United Nations membership at the Security Council, announced Friday by President Mahmoud Abbas, was the most viable of the only options possible: surrender, return to violence or appeal to the international community, a senior Palestinian official said Saturday.
Mr. Shaath distributed a 35-page booklet he and his colleagues plan to give to every United Nations delegation. Titled “Recognizing Palestine: An Investment in Peace,” it lists four reasons the Palestinians have taken this course: acts by Israel that undermine peace, international responsibility toward the Palestinians, the growth of Jewish settlements and intensifying Israeli designs on East Jerusalem.”
