Will Palestinian Leadership Keep the Ball Rolling Toward Statehood?

To keep the 'yes' vote from being a merely symbolic gesture, a temporary boost for outmoded political organizations and the hedonist elites that comprise them, will require vast internal changes that are hard to envision.

The day after the UN vote on recognizing Palestine as a nonmember observer state, the leadership of the PLO/Palestinian Authority will discover that it's easier to convince a few more European states to vote "yes" than it is to meet the high expectations it has created around this move and convince its own public that it's capable of changing its modus operandi.
