At the United Nations, the General Assembly voted 146 to 3 on Tuesday to appoint Palestine as next year’s chair of the G77 coalition of developing nations. Since 2012, Palestine has been recognized by the U.N. as a “non-member state” similar to the Vatican; Tuesday’s vote will allow Palestine to act more like a full U.N. member. Opposing Tuesday’s vote were just three countries: Israel, Australia and the United States.
