The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee said in a report presented Tuesday that recognition of Palestinian statehood in the United Nations this September would harm Israel's standing in the international arena and could lead to a continued state of escalation, Israel Radio reported. Heading the team that prepared the report was MK Yonathan Plesner of Kadima.

One of the report's central findings was that the IDF Intelligence Directorate, the Mossad and the Shabak (Israel Security Agency) believe if the the peace process is restarted, it would be possible to prevent the Palestinian initiative in the United Nations, Israel Radio reported. The report added that the Palestinian strategy has worked and predicted the UN General Assembly would accede to the request to recognize Palestine as a state.
