The UN – with some EU countries in tow – would pass a resolution stating that the world is flat were such a resolution brought by the Palestinians, Israel's UN ambassador Ron Prosor said Thursday night.

Prosor’s remarks came after the world body approved a resolution calling for the Palestinian flag to be hoisted along with the banners of the other nations that make up the world body.

The “State of Palestine” as well as the Vatican have the status of “non-member observer states” at the UN General Assembly, and up until now, only states with full member status had their flags flown there
