Palestinians demand immediate statehood to counter Israeli 'unilateralism'
http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/palestini...

Israel's plan to build new homes in East Jerusalem and the West Bank should be countered by international recognition of a Palestinian state, the chief Palestinian negotiator said on Tuesday.

Raising the stakes in the deadlock over stalled peace talks, Saeb Erekat said it was clear from the latest announcement of building plans that Israel wants settlements, not peace.

"Israeli unilateralism is a call for immediate international recognition of the Palestinian state," he said in a statement.


As the efforts of the Obama administration are crapped on yet again, surely the time to go to the UN is NOW .

1. I agree. It is time to go to the UN...
It's doubtful any declaration of statehood would get US support, but seeing as how the US, Israel and Micronesia would be among the few countries that would oppose it, it's not like any declaration of statehood could be ignored...
