Against the backdrop of the Arab Spring, Palestinians have pressed for a vote in the United Nations General Assembly recognizing Palestine as a new member state. The United States has vowed to veto the measure in the Security Council, arguing that the move will do even further damage to the already-stalled peace talks between the Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Today at 12:30, Shibley Telhami takes your questions in a live web chat on what the vote means for President Obama’s policy in the region, and discusses Arab opinion of the United States and its policies in the Middle East. The live web chat will be moderated by POLITICO.
