Palestinian UN Membership Roulette - by Stephen Lendman

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

As Palestinian legal advisor in 1987, Law Professor Francis Boyle drafted its Declaration of Independence, creating a Palestinian state.

Palestinians now want and deserve official recognition and full de jure UN membership. Washington and Israel remain obstructionist. 

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.

If all 193 nations vote, only 129 are needed to admit Palestine as the UN's 194th member. According to Boyle, it's achievable by mid-October if Abbas follows proper procedures.
