This is a huge change in UN global politics. Like a sign for upcoming New World Order and same time dividing Palestine issue in UN. It is a possibility that many countries turn their back to Israel because of the occupation and show their loyalty towards UN.

"Abbas declared what he called "Palestine" as a "state under occupation."

"We therefore declare that we cannot continue to be bound by these agreements and that Israel must assume all of its responsibilities as an occupying power, because the status quo cannot continue," Abbas said.

"This is a very important point -- the most important point," Barghouti said. "His declaration that the existing agreements are not applying to Palestinians anymore. Let the Israelis come and be the occupying power."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said Abbas' speech was "deceitful and encourages incitement and lawlessness in the Middle East."

Earlier Wednesday, the U.N. secretary general congratulated Abbas, who addressed the General Assembly before the 1 p.m. ceremony, and stressed that "a political horizon must be restored without further delay for a resumption of peace negotiations towards a two-state solution," according to a statement.

Samantha Power, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, told the General Assembly before the vote that the United States is committed to achieving the peace between Palestinians and Israelis but "raising the Palestinian flag outside the U.N. Headquarters is not an alternative to negotiations and will not bring the parties closer to peace."

The United States voted against the resolution.
