    If the palestinians try to go it alone without a negotiated agreement with Israel then this decleration of statehood will turn into a decleration of war with Israel. Israel can't just abandon hundreds of thousands of jews in the land the arabs will declare as being their state and the result will be a full scale war and create regional instbility. Bibi has said today that if they declare unilateral statehood then Israel will annex settlements that means both sides will be fighting to defend their territory. The last thing that the EU wants is to do anything thats going to spark a war so if it comes to giving the palestinians the support for unilaterally declaring statehood then they will say no. We support a negotiated solution & will back that but if you go it alone we will vote against you. If the palestinians go to the Security Council they don't have a hope of getting support but if they do try going it alone its all over. The peace process will not be stalled it will be dead.
