Abstract

As the Palestinian bid for statehood at the UN looms closer, Britain remains non-committal and hints that it will abstain from the Security Council vote. Claims that such a move will encourage both sides back to the negotiating table are false, writes Guy Burton, and are indicative of political beliefs that favour a relationship with the US over that with the nations of the Middle East.
