Topic - Palestinian Territories
The Palestinian territories or occupied Palestinian territories (OPT or oPt) comprise the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Authority, already raised by the U.N. General Assembly to the status of a "nonmember observer state," will seek full sovereignty. Whether or not this final push to statehood will take place in collaboration with Hamas, or on an altogether discrete track, the result will inevitably be injurious to Israel. Significantly, although generally unrecognized, this danger will be enlarged by Iran's nonstop progress to nuclear arms. This is the case even though Iran and "Palestine" might not choose to collaborate against Israel by any conscious ideological design or dint of policy.
