Palestinians Rejoice As Abbas Requests UN Membership

For Palestine which currently has observer status at the United Nations. The President of the Palestinian Authority then delivered his speech to the General Assembly which was interrupted by a couple of standing ovations. But at least two nations weren't clapping: the US which has promised to veto the application once it reaches the Security Council and Israel which doesn't want to return to pre-1967 borders.

Israeli PM Netanyahu then addressed the Assembly asking Abbas to meet with him right away in NYC for peace talks.
