ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues surrounding Palestine's bid for statehood status at the United Nations (UN). The U.S. and Israel are opposing Palestine's move, with officials warning of punitive measures if Palestinians go ahead with the application. New York Representative Nita Lowley suggested that a UN approval may lead to a freeze on some U.S. funds designated for the Palestinian Authority (PA), which receives over 500 million dollars in American assistance every year.
