Jordan, on behalf of the Palestinians, was scheduled to submit a resolution to the UN calling for the complete withdrawal of Israel from the West Bank by 2016.
Whether the resolution will pass was, as of press time, uncertain; and, if it passed, whether the US would veto it, was also uncertain. Our guess is that the US would veto it because it would not achieve Palestinian statehood via negotiations, which the US favors. Rightly so. Unilateral statehood, or statehood via resolution, would merely exacerbate the considerable tension that already exists between Israel and its Palestinian neighbors.
