The UN Security Council holds monthly debates on the situation in the Middle East, with particular focus on the situation between Israel and the Palestinians.  This month’s debate on the topic this week was possibly the last one before September, when the Palestinians will possibly be asking for full membership in the UN, which would necessitate a security council vote.  The conversation got quite heated, with both those opposed and those in favor of the Palestinian move taking time to air their opinions.
