In Search of a Palestinian Leadership
A united, legitimate Palestinian leadership rests on the creation of a new, non-factional and mass-based movement, independent of external patrons and free from international interference.

FN-søknaden kan gi håp for fremtiden
Søknad om medlemskap i FN kan gi Palestina sterkere kort på hånden, bl.a. i kravet om at 1967-grensene skal gjelde. Om det blir nei, kan statusen i FN oppgraderes fra ikke-statlig til statlig observatør.
