Out of 47 nations, only 6 opposed the report going to the General Assembly, the US and a handful of its cronies. If Abbas hadn't put three resolutions in one and left out any criticism of Hamas in his motion, it would likely have been an even bigger vote in favour of referral. Ron from California takes solace in the fact that "the 3rd World countries" voted for it. China, India, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Ron, aren't they all in the G20 now? Some pretty heavyweight opponents there I'd say. Obama will be rather on the spot in the Security Council, being as the US is so far the only one there opposing the report going off to the ICC. All eyes on the big last-minute veto button, but what price will Netanyahu have to pay? It's surely gone up considerably in recent weeks.
