In a paper published by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), Tal Becker examines the scenarios likely to unfold at the UN this September, the regional and domestic factors, and the various implications of potential UN recognition of Palestinian statehood. While he notes potential threats, he also considers potential opportunities such as preservation of the two-state paradigm.

This connects further to Reut’s perspective that while September holds potentially threatening consequences, it will also present an opportunity for Israel re-engagement. The September campaign, which will coincide with the 3rd Durban Conference, the high holidays, and the beginning of academic year, will put the focus on Israel. We can seize upon this confluence as an opportunity for re-engaging with Israel and unifying our ranks against the assault on Israel’s legitimacy.
