The outline of a winning Palestinian strategy is emerging: 1) Unite. The reason stated in the UNSC report why the West opposes Palestine as a member is because we are not united. In response, the road is now clear to a unity government of technocrats with elections in May 2012. 2) Vote. Force an up/down vote at the UNSC even if the West abstains and the US vetos. I ask these Western countries: what will your reason be to vote no or abstain if 1) above occurs based on the UNSC report? 1) above might even give us “vote #9″ but the US will veto. NB: The US veto will have far reaching repercussions beyond Palestine. The non-West part of the world will demand equality at the UNSC as this structure is a remnant of the colonial past. Wish: Would be great if Saudi Arabia (maybe also Kuwait, Qatar, and UAE) say to those who voted no or abstained that their price of oil just doubled. 3) UNGA. Go to the UNGA and get acceptance as a non-member STATE. That’s progress. 4) UN Agencies. Go to ALL UN agencies and become a member including ICJ. That’s MORE progress. 5) ICC. Become a member of the ICC. That’s EVEN more progress. 6) Demonstrate. Start massive non-violent demonstrations across all villages, towns, and cities in Palestine. Initiate non-violent demonstrations in front of US and Israeli embassies worldwide, as well as those who voted no or abstained at the UNSC. 7) BDS. If the above fails, dissolve the PA. A winning strategy for certain. Palestine 194!
