Palestine already is a state. Now official recognition and full UN membership are essential.

Doing so further isolates both countries. Globally, Obama and Netanyahu are laughing stocks, more caricatures than leaders. 

Their contempt for rule of law principles, democratic values, and equal justice is palpable.

On the Progressive Radio News Hour to air October 2, Boyle said 170 nations support Palestinian UN membership, according to the Financial Times.
