After a full tally of the UNESCO vote, here’s a full tally of this evening’s UN General Assembly vote on Palestine. I don’t have a whole lot to add, except to note that some countries that generally vote with the US and Israel abstained or even voted “yes” this time. For instance, Vanuatu abstained. I mean, when you’ve lost Vanuatu, you might as well hang it up. It is also worth noting that that overall, there were more “yes” votes and fewer abstentions and “no” votes than there were for Palestine’s membership bid at UNESCO.
Again, I’ve transcribed these votes from the attached document, so please let me know in the comments if I’ve made any mistakes.
No: 9; Yes: 138; Abstained: 41.
