The PA has been hard at work of late lining up votes in the UNGA for the recognition of the state of Palestine with pre ’67 borders with the eastern part of Jerusalem as its capital.
They intend to use the “Uniting for Peace” procedure to avoid a possible UNSC veto regardless of whether the procedure is legal. (See; The UN Charter Cannot Support GA Resolution 377). Were they to get such recognition the repercussions would be significant.
Alan Baker, who was legal counsel for Israel in the drafting of the Oslo Accords and is currently associated with the Jerusalem Center of Public Affairs, recently published The Palestinian UN Gamble – Irresponsible and Ill-Advised. He summarized his article as follows

Pretty sweet if you can get away with it (and I would not bet against the UN going along with this sham) First, you shell/rocket your sworn enemy and when they "defend themselves" you (a) warn them that if they persist (in defending themselves from "your" attack) you will ramp it up and (b) go to the UN for protection.
Many warned that with the "Libyan Project" (fashioned and advanced by the Anti-Jewish/Israel Loon and architect Samantha Power) that this would lead to a similar type plan for Israel and could actually lead us to take Military action against our ally, not that Dear Leader, who is a Pali/Moozie supporter and good "bud" would object, but either way, if this should come to pass or the UN declares that the so called Palestinians should have their own country, this will either lead to the destruction of Israel or perhaps, WWIII.
Send war in our time, O Lord.
