Welcome Palestine to the community of nations

The United Nations General Assembly has voted in favour of upgrading the Palestinians status to that of a non-member observer state.
Palestinians were previously listed as a UN observer "entity" with no voting rights.

The new status is an indirect recognition of the Palestinians' claims on
statehood in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip. It allows us to join a number of UN agencies, as well as the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Congratulations everyone. There is a lot to do once today's party is over. Let's do it with love, compassion and understanding. This is a good step for both ordinary Palestinians and Israelis who just want to have a normal life free from the war and occupation
