Dore Gold: Palestinian 'State' Would Fail to Recognize Israel

Complete video at: Dore Gold, President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and former diplomat for the state of Israel, argues that Palestine's unilateral bid for United Nations statehood ignores the concerns of Israel. Gold asserts that Palestine seeks recognition, "without having to recognize my people's right to a nation state, even though I'm being asked to recognize his people's right to a nation state." ----- The U.N. Should Admit Palestine as a Full Member State: An Intelligence Squared U.S. Debate. This program was recorded on January 10, 2012. FOR THE MOTION: Dr. Mustafa Barghouti Daniel Levy AGAINST THE MOTION: Dore Gold Aaron David Miller MODERATOR: John Donvan On September 23, 2011, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas appeared before the U.N. General Assembly to request full membership for the State of Palestine. America's veto power renders their bid largely symbolic, but there could be leverage gained-- like indirect recognition of statehood-- in the process. After 20 years of failed talks with Israel, can this plea to the international community be the only path left to a two-state solution, or have the Palestinians set the peace process back by bypassing negotiations? Dore Gold is a world renowned expert on Middle Eastern affairs, a bestselling author, and an accomplished diplomat. During his career as the Prime Minister of Israel's Foreign Policy Adviser and later as Ambassador to the United Nations, Gold distinguished himself in negotiations with world leaders which included the President of the United States, the US Secretary of State, and the British Foreign Secretary. He also served as a special envoy to the leaders of Arab states.
