It's not a smart move to push for full UN membership, since it's pretty clear that the US will reject this in the security council. Abbas should be more modest and push for upgrade in status. Both Israel and Palestine should have the end goal in mind of them having full UN membership, but pushing for it immediately seems very counterproductive. I think both sides know that the only feasible solution that could last would be reached through negotiations. Also....didn't hamas say that they disagreed with Abbas going to the UN?
