United Nations General Assembly Supports Palestinian Request for Membership

UN General Assembly

The 193-member United Nations General Assembly supported a Palestinian bid to become a full U.N. member on Friday.

The United States had vetoed the move last month in the U.N. Security Council.

The resolution formally recommends that the U.N. Security Council favorably consider accepting Palestine as a member.

Israel’s United Nations ambassador reportedly put a copy of the U.N. charter into a paper shredder to express his opposition to the general assembly’s decision on Palestinian membership.

Israeli Ambassador Gilad Erdan said the decision advanced the “establishment of a Palestinian terror state led by the Hitler of our time.”
