The UN has overwhelmingly voted to recognize Palestine as a state. And give it observer status at the UN, which allows them to join some UN agencies, and most most importantly (and most worrying for Israel), allows then access to the International Criminal Court.
138 countries voted in favor, 9 states against, and 41 abstaining. The ( voting against were the US, Israel, and Canada, along with the Czech Republic, Panama, and several pacific island nations (who normally vote with the US on major issues).
Of Course the US objected fiercely- with loud criticism from Susan Rice and Hilary Clinton.
I can’t find a full list of abstainers at the moment (The UK, Germany, and Poland all abstained) Worth noting that US allies Italy, France, Sweeden, as did Mexico and India.
While the move may be, in many regards, largely symbolic. But it may, especially the threat that Israeli IDF forces could end up in the International Criminal Court, may increase pressure on Israel to return to the table and bargain in good faith to finally reach a just 2 state solution.
