Republicans urge Obama to oppose unilateral 'Palestinian' declaration

A group of 115 Republicans in Congress led by Representative Tom Price of Georgia has sent a letter to President Obama urging him to oppose a unilateral declaration of statehood by the 'Palestinians.'
Rep. Tom Price of Georgia wrote Obama on behalf of the 115-member Republican Study Committee on Thursday, asking the president to push back against reports suggesting that Palestinians are considering appealing to the UN rather than negotiating with Israel.

“Any support for such a measure would create a serious barrier to peace between Israel and the Palestinians,” the letter stated.

Price also pressed Obama to back Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s call for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
I would expect to see lots more initiatives trying to push President Obama to push back against the 'Palestinians' in the months ahead. Whether Obama goes along with them will depend on where he sees himself on Wednesday morning and thereafter.
