Simple majority vote in 193-member General Assembly would be enough to bestow non-member observer status.

That isn't going to happen. The General Assembly is a joke. They are followers and will vote according to what is dictated to them.

You want to understand just how pathetic and useless the U.N is? Read this book. The movie Hotel Rwanda was based on it.

Then we can talk about the U.N.

An overwhelming 138 states supported the resolution, nine states against and 41 states abstained.

9 is the perfect number in vortex math, no matter how many times you multiply it, it allways stays 9

states supported 138 = 12 , states abstained 41 = 5
thats a total of 17 whice is 8 whice makes the 9 unbeatable

8 is not 9., 8 is 8,

There was a great show of support for the Palestinians as they bid to upgrade their status at the United Nations. But the move was also strongly opposed by Israel and the United States.

After years of long, inconclusive negotiations, Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, asked the UN General Assembly to recognise the non-member state of Palestine in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.

Abbas has been leading the campaign to win support for the resolution, and over a dozen European governments have offered him their support.

But both Israel and the US have rejected the most recent bid to be recognised as a non-member observer state.

Danny Ayalon, Israel's deputy foreign minister, said the bid is a "virtual move without any substance", while Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, said it would serve no purpose. .

So, how would a new status at the UN help the Palestinians? How would they use their newfound status? And how would it affect future peace efforts?

The UN General Assembly has voted to upgrade Palestinians' diplomatic status to a "non-member observer state," thus implicitly recognizing a Palestinian state. This comes despite strong opposition from the US and Israel - FULL STORY: http://rt.com/news/un-palestinians-non-member-832/
