Abbas op-ed appears in 'The New York Times'

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas took his mission for a Palestinian state to "The New York Times" Tuesday, writing in an opinion article, "Palestine’s admission to the United Nations would pave the way for the internationalization of the conflict as a legal matter, not only a political one."
Abbas continued, "It would also pave the way for us to pursue claims against Israel at the United Nations, human rights treaty bodies and the International Court of Justice."
