Filed under: International Law, Israel

Lenny Ben-David, Jerusalem Center’s Director of Publications interviews Amb. Alan Baker, Director of the Institute for Contemporary Affairs.
Question of the day:
As the former legal advisor to Israel’s Foreign Ministry and Ambassador to Canada, can you respond to reports of a new Palestinian initiative for a UN Security Council resolution to condemn Israeli policies? Ha’aretz and some columnists unfriendly to Israel are calling for President Obama NOT to veto such a resolution.
What would such a resolution mean practically?
