'US firmly opposed to PA seeking UN statehood declaration'
Top White House ME adviser Dennis Ross tells ADL conference that negotiations the only way to produce a Palestinian state; former US envoy to Israel Indyk: Hold quiet talks while Arab world isn't watching.

We have consistently made it clear that the way to produce a Palestinian state is through negotiations, not through unilateral declarations, not through going to the UN, Dennis Ross told the Anti-Defamation Leagues annual leadership conference. Our position on that has been consistent in opposition.

<snip>

Despite the regional confusion and the stalemate between Israelis and Palestinians, Ross declared that one thing in this period of uncertainty that is certain is our relationship with Israel, bound with a set of shared values and interests.

He continued, The commitment to Israels security is unshakable and ironclad. Its not just words. We are giving it live and meaning each day.

1. Yeah, I don't think that Pennsylvania should do that, either.
;-)

On the other hand, I support a UN declaration of a Palestinian state.
