    Why use the word preemptive in the context of diplomacy, this shows that the only language is one of agression when it comes to the Palestinians. Everything to do with the Palestians is how Israel can dicatate the terms of both the dicussion and the eventual peace. I do hope the UN, in your words, preemptively gives their seal of international approval and recognise the state of Palestine, without recourse to whatever the Israeli government says. The middle east world is changing, and the dictatorship of a right wing government in Israel has to face its own 'Eygptian' moment or be forced to do so, hoefully by its own people. Or the real power broker in the tragic story of the Palestinians and their fight against this crual occupation, the US government.
