The United States declares that there is no such state as Palestine, but that concessions must be made to Israel before Palestine will be a state.
The talk examines the status of Palestine. What exactly is the Palestinian Authority? Why it matters whether Palestine is a state. How Palestine’s status effects possible prosecutions in the International Criminal Court for war crimes. How Palestine’s status affects whether it can become a member of the United Nations.
