A surprising diplomatic victory
On the 31th of october, Palestine became the 195 member of the Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). Over 173 lands voting, 107 accepted the motion, 14 refused and 52 voted blanc.
Palestine entering the Unesco didn’t make everybody happy. United-States got the news coldly. They decided to cut their subventions to Unesco, overall 60 millions dollars ! You can find in followinfg this links http://unesco.usmission.gov/amb-statement-36gc-palestine.html the declaration of the permanent representant in the Unesco where he explains the reasons why his country didn’t wanted Palestine to be admited in the Unesco.
However, some specialists describe this admission as a certain progress in the process of acceptance of Palestine as a entire state. Indeed this solution doesn’t bring the direct negociation process with Israel up but rather give no choice to the jewish state.
Is that the good way to stopp this conflict ? Which option is to be choosen ?
A Palestine sovereign state
Before initiating a motion asking the admission of the Palestine at the Unesco, the first minister Mahmoud Abbas deposed, on the 23th of september, a demand of admission for a palestinian state at the UN. This entry at the UN seems for the moment to be compromise. The admission comittee of the United Nations Security council was namely « disable to give a concordant recommandation to the security council ».
Must palestinian people go ahead in this way ? Or in the contrary shoulb they be satisfied from their status of « observer state » that they actually have and focus on the peace process ?
