Yale votes "no" on Palestinian state

Should the U.S. support the Palestinian bid for statehood from the United Nations? No way, say students at Yale University. The answer came in the way of a vote taken by the Yale Political Union a couple of weeks ago, while the UN’s General Assembly met in New York. The vote was 69-39 in favor of the resolution to oppose the move.
Of course, the White House had already announced its intention to oppose the bid for statehood.  Still, noted Yale Hillel co-president Sam Greenberg, the vote was “pretty noteworthy,” given the trend among college campuses “to overwhelmingly vote against Israel in most situations like this. Even Yale, a number of years ago, had a big vote that concluded the U.S. should end its special relationship with Israel.”
