The article reports on the political impact of Palestine's bid for membership with the United Nations. The President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas or Abu Mazen, announced Palestine's application for full status as a member state, but was granted recognition as a state with observer status only. The move would allow Palestine to press charges against Israel before The Hague for building and populating settlements that are illegal by the standards of the fourth Geneva Convention.
