Margin of UN defeat disappoints Israel

Published: 11.30.12, 17:06 / Israel News

"Even old friends like Germany refused to stand alongside us. There were external factors, but it is hard not to see this as a total failure for our diplomacy which will obviously have consequences," said a senior official, who declined to be named. (Reuters)
