Plestinian security officers slide down from a building next to a banner of President Mahmoud Abbas with Yasser Arafat, in the West Bank town of Jenin, Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012. The Palestinians will request the UN to upgrade their status to an observer state on November 29. The status could add weight to Palestinian claims for a state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war from Jordan. Arabic on the left reads "our hero prisoners, the covenant is the covenant and the section is the section, your liberty will stay our first priority," and right, "all your people (are) with you."(AP Photo/Mohammed Ballas)
