This is huge news!

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United Nations voted overwhelmingly Thursday to recognize a Palestinian state, a long-sought victory for the Palestinians but an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the United States.

The resolution upgrading the Palestinians' status to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations was approved by a more than two-thirds majority of the 193-member world body — a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions.

A Palestinian flag was quickly unfurled on the floor of the General Assembly, behind the Palestinian delegation.

Nope, it's not the recognition of a Palestinian State - but a non-voting observer position at the UN General Assembly for the pro-USrael Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah government in the West Bank whose mandate had expired in January 2009. The approved resolution doesn't mention the democratically elected government of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
