In a very brief statement on Tuesday, after the UN Security Council rejected a Palestinian resolution calling for Israel to withdraw from Palestinian territories by late 2017, Israeli delegate Israel Nitzan told the council that the Palestinians have found every possible opportunity to avoid direct negotiations and came to the council with "a preposterous unilateral proposal."

"I have news for the Palestinians - you cannot agitate and provoke your way to a state," he said.
