Undaunted by its failed bid to win a United Nations Security Council resolution mandating an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank, the Palestinian Authority is now considering another push to lobby the world body to grant it independence.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s official spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, announced on Friday that Ramallah is weighing another proposal for a binding Security Council resolution that would call for a Palestinian state along the ’67 lines with east Jerusalem as its capital.
