Tallying the Votes

I'll have more links and analysis of yesterday's UN General Assembly vote to recognize the State of Palestine as a non-member observer on the 1967 borders later today, but for now I wanted to share Haaretz's breakdown of the who voted for and against, and who abstained.

Also, that dot-map is just about the most awful way I've seen to represent countries on a border and delineate borders between them. That giant black country in eastern Europe must be the newly formed nation of Balka-ukraine. I'm also pretty sure there's an erroneous Tetris piece hanging out in the North Atlantic. Haaretz really sold Israel short too, representing their entire country with just one little dot.
