Palestinians are bracing for what they hope will be a political breakthrough at the United Nations. The General Assembly is expected to vote later today on a resolution granting Palestine non-member observer status, similar to the Vatican. Many of Israel's diplomatic allies are planning to vote in favour or, like Australia, abstain. The vote comes 65 years to the day after the UN first presented a plan for two independent states - Israeli and Palestinian - in the region. Source here.

Let us all pray that the votes will be overwhelmingly in favor of Palestine's application to the UN as Non-member Observer State. Its a small step in their long, winding and bloody road to their ultimate goal of sovereign nationhood.
