A very common misconception. The General Assembly does not need the approval or recommendation from the Security Council to submit or vote on a non-binding resolution. Any nation or organization within the United Nations can submit a resolution. The only time when it needs to be approved the the security council is when it becomes binding (law) because the Security Council is the ones who enforce a 'binding' resolution (therefore they would need the approval of the SC first). As long as no action is taken as a result of the resolution, and it does not become legislature, it is fully within the General Assemblies right to submit and vote on a resolution to support the creation of a Palestinian State. Furthermore, with the outbreak of the Korean war, and the split in the Security Council between the USSR and USA, the General Assembly passed Resolution 337 "Uniting for Peace", which specifies: The Resolution declared that when the Security Council was unable to act due to the veto of one of the permanent members that the General Assembly would meet to consider recommendations to members for collective measures, including the use of armed force if necessary. So not only is the General Assembly able to make decisions on their own, they are able to enforce it given there's a strategic split between the super-powers and one uses its veto to its own unfair advantage. Democracy wins in the end.
