Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu said the Palestinian’s bid will derail peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians: “The only way to achieve peace is through agreements that are reached by the parties directly; through valid negotiations between themselves, and not through UN resolutions that completely ignore Israel’s vital security and national interests And because this resolution is so one-sided, it doesn’t advance peace, it pushes it backwards.”
