Palestinian Prisoner Release Celebration Mahmoud Abbas

The United Nations Security Council just voted against a controversial Palestinian Authority proposal, introduced by Jordan, requiring Israel to pull back to the 1967 lines (the 1949 Armistice line), including designating all of East Jerusalem (which includes the ancient Jewish Quarter of the Old City).

The vote failed...

Haneen Zoabi also is a member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as part of Arab nationalist party Balad.
