Below are links to compelling analysis from a variety of political viewpoints about the implications of the State of Palestine attaining UN membership and additional statehood recognition.

The US Campaign takes no position on this Palestinian diplomatic initiative. As a U.S.-based coalition, the US Campaign takes positions only on U.S. policy toward Palestine/Israel and believes that the United States should not oppose Palestinian efforts to achieve full membership at the UN. Neither should it oppose Palestinian efforts to have other countries recognize the State of Palestine. For additional information, please see our FAQs.
