The cabinet on Sunday unanimously passed a resolution completely rejecting the UN decision Thursday to upgrade the Palestinians to non-state observer status.
"The Jewish people have natural, historical, legal rights to its homeland with its eternal capital Jerusalem," the resolution stated. "The state of Israel as the state of the Jewish people has rights and claims to areas are under dispute in the land of Israel."

Furthermore the resolution said that the UN resolution will not be a basis for future negotiations.
