In September/October of THIS year, the UN GA will almost certainly recognize Palestine as an independent state. By then, there is no likelihood that the US will allow the Security Council to accept Palestine as a UN member. But this might happen at some point when the rest of the world recognize the state and the US sees that it only losses it business (especially if other Arab states retaliate in some way). As far as mild sanctions against Israel, some trade sanctions, especially against products from the West Bank, might be possible to pass even in the UN, I think, but Europe can do it by itself and this will hurt just as much. Incidentally, Obama is regaining popularity now.
