UN Official: Security Council Could Unilaterally Declare a Palestinian State if Israel Doesn’t Freeze Settlement Construction…

Weasel Zippers

And the first rocket fired at Israel by “Palestine” would be an official act of war. Note: John Bolton thinks the Obama regime may actually go along with such a UNSC scheme…

The United Nations Security Council could support the Palestinians’ unilateral bid for statehood if Israel does not renew its freeze on new settlement construction, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry warned Israel on Tuesday.

“If the freeze is not renewed, then yes, maybe this is going to happen,” Serry said as he spoke with The Jerusalem Post in an olive grove in the West Bank village of Turmus’ayya, located in the Binyamin Region near the Shiloh settlement.

He held a joint event there with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to mark the founding of the UN 65 years ago.

But he qualified his remarks by noting that he was an official of the UN and not a member of the Security Council, whose 15 member body would make such a decision.

Palestinians have threatened to turn to the Security Council rather than hold direct negotiations with Israel, unless settlement construction is halted. Israel in turn has said it would considering curbing such building if Palestinians recognized Israel as a Jewish state; a move they have refused to do.
