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."

The cabinet decision says that the UN resolution does not change the status of disputed areas and does not detract in any way from Israel and the Jewish people's right to those areas.

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