UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- UN General Assembly votes to recognize the state of Palestine.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Israel's U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor says the only way to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians is through agreements between the parties, not through the United Nations.

Speaking Thursday before a General Assembly vote that would grant the Palestinians nonmember state observer status at the U.N., Prosor said the U.N. can't break the 4,000-year-old bond between the people of Israel and land of Israel. He accused Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of ignoring history.

The U.N. General Assembly is certain to approve the resolution Thursday that will elevate the Palestinians, who have until now been considered an observer "entity."
