Palestinians may end run UN Security Council

As the Palestinians try to maneuver a unilateral declaration of statehood by the United Nations in September, most commentators say that such a bid won’t be possible without the approval of the U.N. Security Council where the United States is certain to exercise its veto, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

But will it?

Even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that while Israel cannot stop the U.N. General Assembly from recognizing a Palestinian state, he said that “it is impossible to recognize a Palestinian state without passing through the Security Council and such a move is bound to fail.”

“No one has the power to stop the decision to recognize a Palestinian state in the U.N. General Assembly in September,” he said. “It can also be possible to make the decision there that the world is flat.”
