Palestine is now officially a non-member state with observer status in the United Nations

God be praised, the Palestinian got what they have asked from the United Nations:

Palestinians win implicit U.N. recognition of sovereign state

"In a historic session of the United Nations in New York Thursday, exactly 65 years after passing the Partition Plan for Palestine, the General Assembly voted by a huge majority to recognize Palestine within the 1967 borders as a non-member state with observer status in the organization. Some 138 countries voted in favor of the resolution, 41 abstained and 9 voted against: Canada, Czech Republic, Israel, U.S., Panama, The Marshall Islands, Palau, Nauru, and Micronesia."
