The State of the Statehood
Your Vox Tablet preview
As the week progresses, all eyes (well, most eyes) are turned to the United Nations, where the Palestinians will present their case to the Security Council on Friday. As for Nathan Thrall, he’s been singularly focused on the bid for statehood for the past year. Thrall is a reporter (a Tablet Magazine contributing editor and a former New York Review of Books staffer) based in Jerusalem, and also the Middle East analyst for the International Crisis Group. He has spent many days over the past months in Gaza and the West Bank, trying to determine where Palestinians of all stripes stand on the U.N. move. Tomorrow, on this week’s episode of Vox Tablet, contributing editor Adam Chandler speaks to Thrall about what Palestinians want, and what we can expect will come to pass if they get it, and if they don’t.
