Steinitz denounces Palestinian's UN statehood bid, despite its failure to pass vote

Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz on Wednesday denounced the draft Palestinian statehood that was submitted to the the United Nations Security Council, although it failed to pass a vote in the body on Tuesday.
"The Palestinian failure to secure a vote in the UN Security Council does not mitigate the Palestinian Authorities hostile and unilateral political offensive against Israel," he charged a day after the vote.
Steinitz said it was "a worrying sign" that France and Britain - two of Israel's allies - supported the resolution or abstained from the vote on it.
