Decades of peace talks have led nowhere. Now the Palestinians plan to take their case to the United Nations, where they believe they can get majority support for an independent Palestine. The question is: Will it work?

Ground sentiment among both Israelis and Palestinians is such that a majority of them are expecting the outbreak of a third intifada, as the stalemate between them continues.

On this much, they agree. If only they can reach a consensus on a plan to head them out of that grim prognosis as well.
