8. Israeli representative lashing out at the UN General Assembly from podium:

-Claims Jerusalem as Israel's capitol
-Claims the resolution is one-sided
-Smack-talks (not making this up) about President Abbas
-Claims Abbas ignores history
-Claims Arabs wanted to throw "Jews into the sea" (his quote)


Dayum! I'm not even going to bother keeping up. This is going to be going on for a while.

All sitting together. Al_Jazeera cut to them, it was classic.

12. Al Jazeera commentators are projecting 140/150 votes out of ~190 UN members. nt

Indonesian representative speaking now, but I'm watching the AJ stream and they're doing commentary until Ban Ki-Moon speaks.

18. From one citizen of a declining empire to another, a lugubrious nod.

Like a scene out of I, Claudius.
