Our second story OutFront: a victory for Palestinians.
The West Bank celebrated today after the United Nations gave Palestinians a small step toward statehood, something they've wanted for years.
The Palestinian Authority is now recognized by the U.N. as a "non-member observer state." The resolution was passed against the will of the United States and Israel, who were in the minority – just nine countries voted against it.
The vote gives the Palestinians a higher profile at the U.N., but more importantly, it also means they can join organizations like the International Criminal Court. And that could allow the Palestinians to pursue war crimes charges against Israel.
OutFront tonight is Silvan Shalom, the Vice Prime Minister of Israel.
This is a big deal
