Does anyone else see the irony? As reported in Haaretz,
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon says that Israel will have to convince General Assembly members to change stance, but that ultimately, it is up to Security Council to decide on recognizing Palestinian state.. . . even though Israelis themselves would point to the UN General Assembly's 1947 vote in favor of partitioning Palestine into Jewish and Arab states as a key event in the international legitimization of Israel.
