Are the challenges that the Palestinians face in becoming full members
of the United Nations similar to the challenges of dealing with
difficult members of a co-op board? That’s what Jon Stewart of “The

application process for the U.N. membership and the objections the
Palestinians face from Israel, the United States and some other
countries (see video above).
