Statehood is Palestine's birthright since the 1948 UN declaration. After over fourty years occupation, that birthright needs affirmation.

A declaration of statehood is an affront to the policy of occupation. On the other hand, Israel could start dismantling its policies of occupation as a visible sign of good faith.
