Joe Lauria, journalist for The Wall Street Journal, discusses the IDF’s assassination of Hamas military chief Ahmed Jaabari; the Palestinian bid for non-member observer state status at the UN, and the legal rights conferred if successful; the similar political timing of Israel’s current aggression and Operation Cast Lead in 2008; US ambassador Thomas Pickering’s threat to “bring down the entire UN” in 1989 when Palestine last sought observer state status; and why Israel’s government is perfectly happy with the status quo in the occupied territories.
