ABSTRACT
The article considers the implications of the statehood of Palestine. Between Israel and Jordan, a new nation is emerging: Palestine. The process has been long and difficult. Beginning in the unilateral declaration of independence by Palestinian Liberation Organization Leader Yasser Arafat, Palestine started its way towards statehood apart from Israel. Then, the Oslo accords of 1994 set the partition process into motion. Now, Palestine has extended its territory into Gaza and the West Bank, and has the Palestinian Authority as a form of government. Yet the Palestinian society is beset with injustice and corruption. As a result, Arafat's popularity has plummeted. Meanwhile, some are concerned that the Palestine's true intentions include the takeover of Jordan.
