Just How Close Are We?

From the Jerusalem Post article,

British Ambassador to the UN Mark Lyall Grant spoke on behalf of Britain, France and Germany on Friday and condemned Israeli settlements as "illegal under international law," Reuters reported.

The three countries hope an independent Palestinian state will join the UN as a new member state by September 2011, Grant added.

1) The settlements are, of course, not illegal under international law. This doesn't stop everyone from saying it though.

2) Given everything else happening in the region, I can't wait for the country of Palestine to come into being, only to be convulsed by revolution just like every other Arab country around.
