No problemo. The ever-lovin' Quartet has a plan:
Diplomats at the United Nations are already looking to limit the fallout from the Palestinian statehood application.
The Security Council could delay action on Abbas' request, giving the mediating "Quartet" -- the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations — more time to craft a declaration that could coax the two sides back to the table.Or maybe not:
But the Quartet, whose envoys met for several hours Thursday, may be unable to agree on a statement that could satisfy both Israel and the Palestinians.Yeah, that is a bit of stumbling block. I know--maybe they can convince the Jews to disavow sovereigty. Aside from that, I can't think of anything that will fly with the Naqba crowd.
