Israeli officials are gearing up for a diplomatic battle royale in New York in September over the Palestinian Authority’s defiant bid to secure full membership in the United Nations at its annual Opening Assembly. Both parties have been making their respective cases to world leaders over recent weeks, and the scorecard from the high stakes face-off will likely be a mix of losses and gains for each side, but with zero progress toward peace.

After months of uncertainty over exactly what the Palestinians would be demanding, PA officials finally confirmed in mid-August that they will be making a request for admittance into the United Nations as a member state.
