Sabeel Statement: The UN: Problem or Solution

Dear friends,

We are enclosing two statements from Sabeel:

1.“The UN: Problem or Solution.” This is a short statement (844 words) to help our friends understand what might happen in the UN after September 20, 2011. This was circulated on August 24, 2011 to a limited number of friends due to technical reasons. We are making it available now to all our friends.

2.“Dilemmas and Opportunities Facing the Palestinian People.” This is a much longer version (2284 words) offering our friends a more detailed background material about the pros and cons of what might transpire later on this month.
I hope you will find these statements helpful. With best wishes,

Naim Ateek
Sabeel, Jerusalem
