    THINK about it! The PLO is an "observer entity", so if this bid goes to an immediate vote then the UNSC will be voting on TWO questions Q(1) Is Palestine a state? Q(2) If "yes" then can it join our club? But if this bid goes to committee then Q(1) becomes moot when the UNGA elevates their status to "non-member state". Get it? THIS time the "facts on the ground" actually shift in the PLO's favour, because the "facts" being established in the UNGA will strengthen their bid.
