Resolution for Palestinian Statehood Fails in the UN

A resolution to acknowledge Palestinian statehood and its claims to Israeli territories in the West Bank was voted down in the U.N. Security Council. The measure fell just one vote short of the number needed to pass. The U.S. had threatened to veto the resolution, which it considers biased against Israel and detrimental to the peace process.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• In Ukraine, 150 Ukrainian prisoners held by Russian rebels were released this week, while peace talks were scrapped with no word why.
• Israel provided thousands of Christian pilgrims access to the Palestinian-held holy site of Bethlehem during the Christmas season.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on the historic Freedom Flights that have rescued more than 400 Jews from war-torn Ukraine.
