Spotlight: Obama, the UN, and Palestinian Statehood

President Obama is rumored to be considering supporting (or not vetoing) a UN Security Council resolution unilaterally recognizing a Palestinian state during his final months in office. This would reverse the decades-long U.S. position that a Palestinian state should be established only after a final-status Israel-Palestinian peace settlement has been reached.

Middle East Forum staff and fellows have written extensively on this issue in recent weeks, and over the course of the Forum’s history. See the selections at right.
