The United Nations General Assembly in New York is preparing for the prospect of recognizing an independent Palestinian state in parts or all the territories that Israel captured in the 1967 war.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian National Authority President Mahmoud Abbas are both due to address the world body on Friday.

Tensions along the East River in New York are running high as negotiators from both sides, with U.S. and Quartet help, try to hammer out a negotiated compromise before then.

Whatever the outcome, more than 300,000 Jewish residents of some 120 communities in the West Bank are watching and waiting to see if the sparks of the diplomatic clash ignite a political bushfire among their Arab neighbors, one that could sweep through their settlements, as well.
