If the UN recognizes Palestine as a state, many things will happen that favor Israel. 1. Palestinians will lose their stateless status and receive Palestinian passports. The Pal right of Return will fall of the table. 2. Palestine will sign the UN Declaration on Human Rights which grants cultural, language and human rights to all minorities regardless of legal status under the previous regime. Jewish 'settlers' will no longer be settlers, they will be a recognized minority. 3. The WB/Gaza corridor is on recognized Israeli territory. Off the table. 4. Palestine will still have to negotiate final borders with Israel. They will be under pressure to exchange land with concentrations of Jews because expulsion of a minority is a human rights violation and a war crime. 5 they will have to negotiate security arrangements with Israel in return for troop withdrawal.
