Something I'm genuinely curious about is the public justification for the US veto of Palestinian statehood at the UN security council meeting next week (11 November), and for this week denying $60m to UNESCO as a sanction against the recognition there.  Is there any logical argument that recognition of a party to potential negotiations makes those negotiations either more unlikely or more difficult, or somehow harms the prospect of Middle East peace and security?

I don't tend to think much on my 9 am-ish way to work.  I'm alert enough to mind the traffic and wonder if current wool stocks will  last to the end of current knitting projects, but not much else.
