Plus Ça Change…

Israel-Palestine After September at the U.N.

What is next on the Israel-Palestine front following the Palestinian application for statehood at the United Nations? Why is the Quartet still pushing for direct negotiations between the parties? Will those negotiations happen and do they stand a chance of succeeding? Should a borders-and-security deal replace the pursuit of a comprehensive, end-of-conflict peace?

With these questions in mind, we’ll take stock of recent developments, where the players are at, and what flashpoints to keep an eye on.
