UN vote on Palestine will lead to war

Wednesday, June 29, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

The result of the Palestinian Authority's bid to win international recognition for a Palestinian state at the UN in September is likely to be war with Israel.

That according to a survey of Palestinian Arabs conducted by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Opinion this week.

While most Palestinians do not believe the motion on an independent Palestinian state will pass in both the General Assembly and the Security Council, if it does, they have very specific and violent ideas about what should happen next.

If the UN recognizes Palestine, 76 percent of Palestinian Arabs said their security forces must immediately exert control over all of Judea, Samaria and the eastern half of Jerusalem, even at the risk of open warfare with the Israeli army.

They also want Palestinian forces to seize control of the Allenby Bridge crossing into neighboring Jordan.
